Acute hepatic dysfunction associating sepsis is mediated mainly by toll-like receptor-4 (TLR-4)/nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB) inflammatory pathway. This study explores potential hepatoprotective effect of the NF-κB inhibitor celastrol in cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model in rats. Protective effect of celastrol (1mg/kg, i.p., 1h before CLP) was illustrated after 24h by preventing CLP-induced hepatic histopathological changes and elevation in serum hepatic biomarkers [alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), total bilirubin (TB) and gamma aminotransferase (γ-GT)] without affecting mortality. Celastrol anti-inflammatory effect was illustrated by inhibiting increased serum and hepatic mRNA expression of interleukin-6 (IL-6) without affecting IL-10 elevation. Furthermore, celastrol inhibited CLP-induced elevations in hepatic mRNA expression of nuclear factor inhibitory protein kappa-B alpha (NFκBia), TLR-4, 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) and prevented NF-κB/p65 nuclear translocation and activation. In conclusion, celastrol prevented CLP-induced acute hepatic dysfunction through its anti-inflammatory effect by attenuating NF-κB activation, TLR-4 and 5-LOX expression with subsequent reduction in pro-inflammatory IL-6.
