Objective: To observe the effects of salidroside on carbohydrate metabolism and differentiation of 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Methods: 3H-glucose uptaking rate in adipocytes treated by salidroside was detected. Adipocytes treated by salidroside in differentiation were stained by oil red O and analyzed by spectrophotography quantitatively. The expression of PPAR-γ and C/EBP-α mRNA relating to differentiation of adipocytes was detected by reverse transcription PCR. Results: 3H-glucose uptaking rate in the salidroside group was 110.4%, higher than that in the blank control group (P<0.01). Salidroside suppressed the differentiation of 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes and down-regulated the expression of PPAR-γ and C/EBP-α mRNA (P<0.01, vs control group). Conclusion: Salidroside promotes the 3H-glucose uptaking, suppresses the differentiation and down-regulates the expression of PPAR-γ and C/EBP-α mRNA in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

Key words: salidroside, 3T3 cells, cells differentiation, metabolism, glucose
