Jujuboside A is a glycoside extracted from Semen Ziziphi Spinosae, a Chinese herbal medicine used to treat insomnia and anxiety.

IC50 & Target

GABA Receptor, mTOR, PI3K, Akt[1][2]

In Vitro

Jujuboside A at the low dose of 41 μM (about 0.05 g/L) induces significant increase of GABA(A) receptor α1, α5, β2 subunit mRNAs in both 24 and 72h treatments. Jujuboside A at the high dose of 82 μM (about 0.1 g/L) significantly increases GABA(A) receptor α1, α5 subunit mRNA levels and decreases β2 subunit mRNA level at 24h treatment, and decreases GABA(A) receptor subunit α1, β2 mRNAs expression at 72h treatment[1]. Jujuboside A pretreatment could reverse the reduction of cell viability and better the injury of H9C2 cells induced by ISO. Jujuboside A could accelerate the phosphorylation of PI3K, Akt, and mTOR. Jujuboside A could significantly decrease the ratio of microtubule-associated protein LC3-II/I in H9C2 cells[2].

In Vivo

During daytime (9:00-15:00), jujubosides significantly increases the total sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep without significant influence on non-REM (NREM) sleep. During nighttime (21:00-3:00), jujubosides significantly increases the total sleep and NREM sleep especially the light sleep while shows no significant effect on REM sleep and slow wave sleep (SWS)[3]. Intracerebroventricular treatment with Jujuboside A significantly mitigates learning and memory impairment in mice induced by Aβ1–42 as measured by the Y-maze, active avoidance and Morris water maze. Intracerebroventricular treatment with Jujuboside A reduces the level of Aβ1–42 in hippocampus, significantly inhibits the activities of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and NO, and decreases the amount of the increased malondialdehyde (MDA) in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex of mice treated with intracerebroventricular injection of Aβ1–42[4].

Cell Assay

Jujuboside A is dissolved in D-PBS solution[1].

After 7 days in culture in vitro, cells are exposed continuously for the next 24 or 72 h to the culture medium with either Jujuboside A or diazepam, or neither of them. Vehicle is added for the control group; 10 μM diazepam is added for the diazepam group; Jujuboside A 82 μM (about 0.1 g/L) and 41 μM (about 0.05 g/L) are added for the JuA-H (high dose Jujuboside A) and the JuA-L (low dose Jujuboside A) groups respectively. Total RNA is isolated from cells for further analysis[1]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.

Animal Administration

Jujuboside A is dissolved in physiological saline solution at a stock concentration of 0.2 mg/mL and 2.0 mg/mL[1].

Mice: Cognitive impairment of mice is induced by ICV injection of Aβ1-42. Then mice are given intracerebroventricular (ICV) injection of Jujuboside A (0.02 and 0.2 mg/kg) for five consecutive days. Y-maze, active avoidance and Morris water maze tests are performed on mice[1]. MCE has not independently confirmed the accuracy of these methods. They are for reference only.
