    Biological Activity
    Description: 3-O-Methylquercetin is a selective and competitive PDE3/PDE4 inhibitor, and inhibits PDE3 than PDE4 with a low K(m) value; it inhibits total cAMP- and cGMP-phosphodiesterase (PDE) of guinea pig trachealis at low concentrations. 3-O-Methylquercetin has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and bronchodilating effects, and has the potential for use in the treatment of asthma at a dose without affecting blood pressure.
    Targets: cAMP | PDE | IL Receptor | TNF-α | NOS | NO | Antifection

    Development of topical nanoemulsions containing quercetin and 3-O-methylquercetin.[Pubmed: 20099516]
    This study describes the physico-chemical properties and the skin permeation profile of quercetin (Q) and 3-O-Methylquercetin (MQ) from lipid nanoemulsions.
    Formulations composed of octyldodecanol, egg lecithin, water (NE) and cetyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CNE) were obtained by spontaneous emulsification. This procedure yielded monodisperse nanoemulsions exhibiting a mean droplet size of approximately 200-300 nm. Nanoemulsions were further characterized in terms of zeta-potential, surface tension, and morphology by transmission electron microscopy. The amount of flavonoids incorporated into nanoemulsions reached nearly 100% (at 1 mg/mL). The permeation studies were carried out using ear pig skin mounted in Franz diffusion cells.
    The overall results have shown a slow permeation profile of both Q and 3-O-Methylquercetin from nanoemulsions. However, a higher permeation flux rate of flavonoids from CNE (approximately 0.2 microg/cm2/h) as compared to NE (approximately 0.08 microg/cm2/h) was observed, showing the effect of the positively charged surface of CNE on this parameter. Such results open interesting perspectives for the topical administration of the flavonoids Q and 3-O-Methylquercetin.

    3-O-methylquercetin more selectively inhibits phosphodiesterase subtype 3.[Pubmed: 12709896]
    Rhamnus nakaharai Hayata (Rhamnaceae), has been used as a folk medicine in Taiwan for treating constipation, inflammation, tumors and asthma. 3-O-Methylquercetin (3-MQ), a main constituent of the plant, has been reported to inhibit total cAMP- and cGMP-phosphodiesterase (PDE) of guinea pig trachealis. Therefore we were interested in investigating the inhibitory effect of 3-O-Methylquercetin on various PDE isozymes from guinea pig lungs and hearts.
    Isolated guinea pig lungs and hearts were homogenized and centrifuged. The supernatant was chromatographed over a column of Q-sepharose, and eluted with various concentrations of NaCl. In the following order, PDE subtypes 1, 5, 2, 4 from lungs, and 3 from hearts were separated. The IC 50 values of 3-O-Methylquercetin on these isozymes were 31.9, 86.9, 18.6, 28.5 and 1.6 microM, respectively. 3-O-Methylquercetin (10-100 microM) non-competitively inhibited PDE2, but competitively inhibited PDE4. 3-O-Methylquercetin (1-10 microM) also competitively inhibited PDE3. However, 3-O-Methylquercetin (10-100 microM) did not competitively inhibit PDE1 and 5, although it had a tendency to competitively inhibit PDE1 at concentrations of 10 - 30 microM. The present results showed that K i value of 3-O-Methylquercetin was similar to that of milrinone in PDE3, and was not significantly different from that of Ro 20 - 1724 in PDE4, respectively.
    In conclusion, 3-O-Methylquercetin was revealed to be a selective and competitive PDE3/PDE4 inhibitor, although its inhibitory effect on PDE4 was not potent. Therefore, 3-O-Methylquercetin may have a potential in the treatment of asthma beside its antiviral activity.

    Suppressive effects of 3-O-methylquercetin on ovalbumin-induced airway hyperresponsiveness.[Pubmed: 15643544]
    Rhamnus nakaharai Hayata (Rhamnaceae) has been used as a folk medicine in Taiwan for treating constipation, inflammation, tumors, and asthma. 3-O-Methylquercetin (3-MQ), a main constituent of the plant, has been reported to inhibit total cAMP- and cGMP-phosphodiesterase (PDE) of guinea pig trachealis at low concentrations. 3-O-Methylquercetin has been also reported to more selectively inhibit PDE3 than PDE4 with a low K(m) value. Therefore we were interested in investigating its suppressive effects on ovalbumin (OVA)-induced airway hyperresponsiveness in vivo and in vitro.
    3-O-Methylquercetin (3-30 micromol/kg, i. p.) significantly suppressed the enhanced pause (Penh) value induced by aerosolized methacholine (50 mg/mL) in sensitized mice after secondary allergen challenge. 3-O-Methylquercetin (3-30 micromol/kg, i. p.) also significantly suppressed total inflammatory cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and eosinophils, but not lymphocytes. In addition, 3-MQ (3 micromol/kg, i. p.) significantly decreased the secretion of TNF-alpha, and at the highest dose (30 micromol/kg, i. p.) even decreased the secretions of IL-4, IL-5, and TNF-alpha. 3-O-Methylquercetin (1-10 microM) as well as Ro 20-1724 (3-30 microM), a selective PDE4 inhibitor, significantly attenuated OVA (100 microg/mL)-induced contractions. 3-O-Methylquercetin (30 microM) as well as milrinone (1-10 microM), a selective PDE3 inhibitor, significantly enhanced baseline contractions in isolated guinea pig left and right atria. However, neither 3-O-Methylquercetin nor milrinone significantly affected baseline beating rate in the right atria. 3-O-Methylquercetin (3-30 micromol/kg, i. p.) did not significantly affect systolic pressure in conscious mice.
    In conclusion, 3-O-Methylquercetin has both anti-inflammatory and bronchodilating effects, and has the potential for use in the treatment of asthma at a dose without affecting blood pressure.

    Mechanisms of suppression of nitric oxide production by 3-O-methylquercetin in RAW 264.7 cells.[Pubmed: 16213685]
    Rhamnus nakaharai Hayata (Rhamnaceae) is used as a folk medicine in Taiwan for treating constipation, inflammation, tumors, and asthma. 3-O-Methylquercetin (3-MQ), a main constituent of the plant, has been reported to have potential for use in the treatment of asthma. The mechanisms of anti-inflammation of 3-O-Methylquercetin are still unclear.
    Nitric oxide (NO) production induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) through iNOS expression in RAW 264.7 cells, a mouse macrophage cell line, may reflect the degree of inflammation and may provide a measure for assessing the effect of drugs on the inflammatory process. Therefore, we were interested in investigating the mechanisms of suppression of NO production by 3-O-Methylquercetin in RAW 264.7 cells. 3-O-Methylquercetin (1-10 microM) concentration-dependently inhibited LPS (100 ng/mL)-induced NO production in RAW 264.7 cells. The IC(50) value was calculated to be 4.23 microM. 3-O-Methylquercetin(1-10 microM) significantly and concentration-dependently inhibited LPS (100 ng/mL)-induced iNOS protein and mRNA expressions in cells. The IC(50) values were calculated to be 4.36 and 6.53 microM, respectively. There was no significant difference among these three IC(50) values of 3-O-Methylquercetin.
    In conclusion, 3-O-Methylquercetinmay exert its anti-inflammatory effect through the inhibition of iNOS DNA transcription.
