ABSTRACT To observe the effects of neurotrophin 3(NT-3)on interdigestive migrating motor complex (MMC) in rats with D-galactosamine induced acute liver injury.
Twenty-four specific pathogen-free purebred rats were equally randomized into control and acute liver injury groups. The control group was injected with equal volume of normal saline via tail vein. Acute liver injury model of the rats was induced by D-galactosamine injection via the tail vein in the acute liver injury group. And the indexes of interdigestive MMC before and after NT-3 injection were recorded by a polygraph and analyzed in model group. The serum NT-3 concentration was assayed in the two groups.
There were no significant changes of gastrointestinal MMC cycle and jejunal phase I MMC after NT-3 injection. Compared with the acute liver injury rats before NT-3 injection , the antral phases I, III and IV MMC were significantly prolonged [(577.44 ± 248.60)s vs (343.58 ± 227.30) s, (80.94 ± 21.15) s vs (24.76 ± 7.41) s, (405.69 ± 131.34) s vs (191.67 ± 128.15) s, P < 0.05] and the phase II MMC was shortened [ (883.94 ± 488.50) s vs (1519.00 ± 831.14) s, P < 0.05] in the acute liver injury group. The duodenal phases I, III and IV MMC were significantly prolonged [ (557.63 ± 335.14) s vs (309.46 ± 220.22) s,(75.91 ± 15.75) s vs (31.15 ± 13.67) s, (423.38 ± 135.22) s vs (209.77 ± 123.83) s, P < 0.05] and MMC II phase was shortened [ (748.81 ± 579.69) s vs (1535.86 ± 930.50) s, P < 0.05] in the acute liver injury rats. In addition, the jejunal MMC III and MMC IV phase was significantly prolonged [ (86.58 ± 23.40) s vs (31.41 ± 16.09) s,(385.18 ± 110.02) s vs (220.59 ± 159.30) s, P < 0.05] and phase II MMC was shortened [ (876.89 ± 652.01) s vs (1870.89 ± 1010.35) s, P < 0.05 ] in the acute liver injury rats. The serum NT-3 level was significantly higher in model group than in control group.
NT-3 could enhance the gastrointestinal motility in acute liver injury rats.
