Accumulating evidences demonstrated that Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) may lead to serious damages to numerous cellular biomolecules, consequently resulting in the development of several neurological diseases. Diclofenac (Dic), the most widely preferred non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) induces apoptosis by an alteration in function of mitochondria and creation of ROS. Chrysin (Chr) is a naturally active component that is found in numerous plants and bee products and retains strong neuroprotective and antioxidant properties. However its effect of Dic induced injury on SH-SY5Y neuron cells have not been investigated to date. The goal of present research was to study the molecular mechanisms of Chr protection from oxidative injury caused by Dic in SH-SY5Y cells. Dic induced significant toxicity on the cells and this effect was reversed by pre-treatment with Chr. Dic triggered a noteworthy increase in the cellular ROS and Lipid peroxidation (LPO) levels and decrease in Total antioxidant status (TAS) level while pre-treatment with Chr reversed these effects. Dic induction increased the Bax, cytochrome c, cas-3, cas-8 and p53 expression at gene transcription level. Elevated levels of these genes considerably decreased by Chr pre-treatment revealing the defensive effects of Chr. The results obviously presented that exposure of SH-SY5Y with Dic resulted in oxidative stress and apoptosis while pre-treatment of neuron cells with Chr protects the cells against apoptosis triggered by Dic induction.
