The use of baicalin after UVA radiation signiﬁcantly reduces the level of intracellular O2−, NO, and ROS (Reactive oxygen species) stabilized the mitochondrial membrane potential, and attenuated production of MDA and 8-oxo-dG. These efﬁciently enhances the antioxidative defense system and protects the HSFs from subsequent oxidative stress damage and apoptosis. Baicalin decreases the excessive generation of intracellular ROS and NO, and elevates the cellular antioxidative defense, which eventually mitigate the UVA-induced apoptosis.
