ABSTRACT: 2',4'-Dihydroxy-6'-methoxy-3',5'-dimethylchalcone (DMC), a compound isolated and purified from the dried flower buds of Cleistocalyx operculatus (Roxb.) Merr. et Perry (Myrtaceae), was investigated for its glucose control benefits using in-vitro methods. DMC showed strong non-competitive (IC50 of 43 μM) inhibition of pancreatic α-amylase; it was, however, ineffective against intestinal α-glucosidase. In addition, DMC exhibited remarkable glucose transport inhibition effects in both simulated fasting and fed states in Caco-2 cell monolayers (P < 0.05). Besides, exposure of MIN6 cells to 250 μM H2O2 for 1 h caused a significant viability loss and insulin secretion reduction. Pretreatment of MIN6 cells with DMC for 2 h protected against the H2O2-induced decrease in glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in a dose-dependent manner and also enhanced the impaired basal insulin secretion. Such effects highlight therapeutic potential of DMC in the management of hyperglycemia.
