Abstract

Avenanthramide C (AVC), found mainly in oats, mediates anti-inflammatory activities by reducing the anti-inflammatory cytokine levels. This study investigated the effects of AVC on hypoxia-induced cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression in A549 cells. AVC suppressed the hypoxia-induced increase in COX-2 protein levels and promoter activity. We also observed that the effects of AVC were reversed by a SIRT1 inhibitor, indicating that the inhibitory effects of AVC on hypoxia-induced COX-2 expression are mediated by SIRT1. Therefore, AVC inhibits the hypoxic induction of COX-2 expression via SIRT1 activation. Our results suggest that AVC could be beneficial for preventing lung inflammation under hypoxia.
