Oridonin, the major terpene isolated from Rabdosia rubescens, has been used as dietary supplement. Recently, it has been known to exhibit anti-inflammatory effect. This study we employed an in vitro model of LPS-stimulated human gingival fibroblasts to investigate the anti-inflammatory effects and mechanism of oridonin. Oridonin (10-30 μg/mL) was administrated 1 h before LPS treatment. The results showed that oridonin significantly inhibited inflammatory mediators PGE, NO, IL-6, and IL-8 production. Immunoblotting experiments revealed that oridonin reduced the expression of phosphorylation levels of NF-κB p65 and IκBα. Furthermore, the expression of PPARγ was up-regulated by the treatment of oridonin. Further studies showed that PPARγ inhibitor GW9662 could reverse the inhibition of oridonin on PGE, NO, IL-6, and IL-8 production. In conclusion, oridonin inhibited LPS-induced microglia activation through activating PPARγ.
