Abstract Cistanche tubulosa is a traditional Chinese herbal medicine widely used for regulating immunity and phenylethanol glycosides CPhGs are among the primary components responsible for this activity. Previous studies have indicated the preventive and therapeutic effects of CPhGs on bovine serum albumin BSA-induced hepatic fibrosis in rats. The aim of the study was to evaluate the anti-hepatic fibrosis effect of CPhGs and the monomers echinacoside and acteoside by inhibiting hepatic stellate cell HSC activation, blocking the conduction of signaling pathways in transforming growth factor-β1 TGF-β1-smad, and determine their in vitro hepatoprotective activity. HSC proliferation was obviously inhibited after treatment with CPhGs 100, 50 μg-mL-echinacoside 500, 250, 125 μg-mL-acteoside 6, 3 μg-mL, with IC50 values of 119.125, 520.345 and 6.999 μg-mL, respectively, in the MTT assay. Different concentrations of CPhGs-echinacoside-acteoside did not affect the cellular toxicity on HSC according to lactate dehydrogenase LDH measurements. Different concentrations of CPhGs-echinacoside-acteoside increased the mRNA level and protein expression of smad7, and decreased the mRNA levels of smad2, smad3 and the protein expression of smad2, phospho-smad2 p-smad2, smad3, phospho-smad3 p-smad3 in HSC. In summary, these results demonstrate that CPhGs-echinacoside-acteoside can block the conduction of the signaling pathways in TGF-β1-smad, and inhibit the activation of HSC, suggesting that C. tubulosa may thus be a potential herbal medicine for the treatment of liver fibrosis.
