J Physiol Pharmacol 2020 Dec 22;71(6). Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Department of Food Science and Nutrition, College of Food and Agricultural Science, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This study investigated the protective effect of ellagic acid (EA) against diabetic cardiomyopathy (DC) in streptozotocin (STZ)-treated rats and examined if the mechanism of protection involves modulating silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1). Adult male rats were divided into 5 groups (n = 12/each) as control, control + EA, diabetes mellitus (DM), STZ + EA, and STZ + EA + EX-527 (a SIRT1 inhibitor). With a hypoglycemic and insulin-releasing effect, EA preserved cardiomyocyte structure and suppressed the increase in heart weights and collagen deposition in the left ventricle (LV) of DM rats.
