Synthesis of Baicalein Modified Cerium Oxide Nanoparticles for Inhibitory Activation of NF-κB and Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Signals in Rotenone-Induced Parkinsonian Rats
Baicalein is one of the chief flavones extracted from Scutellariabaicalensis georgi which was earlier reported for its neuroprotective efficacy against Parkinson's disease (PD). In the present study, a simple and efficient synthetic procedure for the preparation of CeO2NPs using Ce(NO3)3 as a primary precursor and baicalein as a stabilizing agent was proposed. Further, the neuroprotective response of baicalein stabilized CeO2 NPs against rotenone-stimulated parkinsonian diseased mice has been explored both in-vitro and in-vivo. From the experimental findings, it was also evident that baicalein exposure has enhanced the motor impairments, and hindered the pro-inflammatory cytokine release and blocked the NF-κB along with MAPK signaling pathway in rotenone-stimulated PD rat models.
