Diwu Yanggan capsule inhibits the occurrence and development of liver cancer in the Solt-Farber rat model by regulating the Ras/Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway.

Abstract:

:This study sought to determine the effect and explore the mechanism of the Chinese medicinal compound preparation Diwu Yanggan (DWYG) capsule on the occurrence and development of liver cancer using the Solt-Farber rat model. Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly distributed into a normal group, sham group, DWYG group, sorafenib group, and model group. The DWYG group and sorafenib group were given DWYG capsule and sorafenib tablet, respectively, with induction of the model. Hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining was used to detect liver pathological changes. The content of nuclear DNA in the liver was detected by Feulgen staining, and the expression of PCNA was detected by immunohistochemical staining. Molecular biology methods were used to detect the expression of liver regeneration-related factors and Ras/Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway-related proteins and mRNAs. HE staining showed that compared with those in the model group, the liver pathological changes in the DWYG group were significantly reduced (P < 0.05). The nuclear DNA content in the liver based on Feulgen staining and the expression of PCNA in the DWYG group was lower than that in the model group (P < 0.05). The expression of regeneration-related factors and Ras/Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway-related proteins and mRNAs was significantly lower in the DWYG group than in the model group (P < 0.05). In conclusion, DWYG capsules to some degree inhibit the occurrence and development of liver cancer in the Solt-Farber rat model, and the effect is not inferior to that of sorafenib. DWYG capsules likely delay the occurrence and development of liver cancer and improve the liver regeneration microenvironment by regulating the Ras/Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway and regeneration-related factors.
