Gambogic acid (GA) is one of active components of Chinese medicine gamboges resin. Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a most serious microvascular complication of diabetes and also the leading cause of blindness. The aim of this study is to evaluate the beneficial effect of GA on diabetes-induced retinal angiogenesis and further explore the potential mechanisms.High glucose (HG)-treated RF/6A cells and STZ-induced diabetic mice were used as in vitro and in vivo models. Then the effects of GA on proliferation, migration and tube formation in RF/6A cells and pathomorphological changes in STZ-induced diabetic mice were determined. The activation of HIF-1α/VEGF and PI3K/AKT signaling pathways was assessed by various molecular biological experiments.According to our results, GA inhibited HG-induced proliferation, migration and tube formation in choroid-retinal endothelial RF/6A cells. The upregulation of HIF-1α and VEGF induced by HG in RF/6A cells was restrained by GA treatment significantly. Moreover, GA suppressed retinal pathomorphological changes and angiogenesis in STZ-induced diabetic mice in vivo, and also inhibited the activation of HIF-1α/VEGF pathway induced by diabetics. Finally, GA suppressed the activation of PI3K/AKT signaling pathway in STZ-induced diabetic mice in vivo and in HG-induced RF/6A cells in vitro. Further activation of PI3K/AKT pathway by IGF-1 restrained the beneficial effect of GA in RF/6A cells.Our results provide evidence that GA ma
y ameliorate diabetes-induced retinal angiogenesis, which are proofs that GA may be developed as a potential drug for treating DR.
