Abstract
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrine metabolic disorders. Oxidative stress plays a major role in the pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus. Streptozotocin (STZ)-induced oxidative stress is implicated in both liver injuries as well in β - cell destruction. Diabetes was induced by streptozotocin (STZ) injection (ip) at a dose of 200 mg/kg. STZ-induced diabetic mice were orally administered with ES (20mg/kg) for 2 weeks. In ES administrated STZ-induced diabetic model, water intake was decreased than STZ-injected control mice. In addition, blood glucose, fasting blood glucose, and total cholesterol were decreased. Liver weight was not significantly reduced compared with STZ-injected contrel mice. Additionally, COX-2 protein expression and G6Pase mRNA expression in liver tissue were reduced compared with STZ-injected control mice. We suggested that ES might be considered as an antioxidant in preventing the development of hyperglycemia, and as a treatment for STZ-induced diabetic liver in mice.
