It was previously shown that total saponins extracted from Aralia taibaiensis (sAT) have potent antioxidant activities for treating diabetes mellitus and attenuate D-galactose-induced aging. Since diabetes mellitus and aging are closely associated with cardiac dysfunction, particularly ischemic heart disease, sAT may have potential protective activity against myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury (MI/RI). However, the anti-MI/RI effects of sAT have yet to be examined, and the possible molecular mechanisms remain to be determined. The present study was undertaken to investigate the anti-MI/RI activities of sAT and to elucidate the mechanisms underlying these eff...
