- Prenylated flavonoids isolated from the seeds of Sophora flavescens have been reported to possess antbacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammation, and anti-allergic activities. The present study was aimed to investigate the protective effects of Sophoraflavanone G (SFG) isolated from S. flavescens extract (SFE)on hepatocyte cultured with high fatty acid and the underlying mechanisms. By using human hepatoma cell HepG2 as cell model, the results showed that SFE and SFG suppressed fatty acid synthesis and enhanced fatty acid oxidation, contributing to amelioration of lipid accumulation induced by oleic acid. Moreover, SFE and SFG also stimulated adenosine monophosphate-activated
protein kinase. SFE and SFG attenuated the expression of sterol regulatory element-binding protein-1 and its target molecules, such as fatty acid synthase. In contrast, the lipolytic enzyme expressions of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor α and carnitinepalmitol- transferase-1 were increased. This study suggests the hypolipidemic effects of SFE and SFG occur via phosphorylation of AMPK and inhibition of lipid biosynthesis and stimulation of lipolysis. Therefore, the SFE and SFG may actively prevent nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
