ABSTRACT

The impact of β-Casomorphin-7 (β-CM-7) on lipid metabolism was investigated in aged mice. Mice were treated without or with different doses of β-CM-7 for 30 days. At the end of the experiment, all mice were collected for serum and tissue samples. Histopathological studies showed the tissue protective role of β-CM-7 in aged mice. The treatment of β-CM-7 in aged mice significantly increased the triglyceride (TG) level with decreasing high density lipoprotein (HDL) level in serum. The superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) activities and malondialdehyde (MDA) level were significantly increased in liver tissues with β-CM-7 treated. β-CM-7 decreased the fatty acid synthase (FAS) level significantly. The results suggest that β-CM-7 can change the dyslipidemia which is induced by aging. The mechanisms of the regulating effects likely tend to pass through controlling the oxidative stress and balancing the level between FAS and acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC).
