In this study, we examined the effects of the water extract of Neolentinus lepideus (WENL), an edible mushroom, on ethanol-induced hepatic lipid accumulation. Ethanol-induced oil red O-positive spots on AML-12 hepatocytes were attenuated by WENL treatment. Furthermore, the oral administration of WENL in acute and chronic ethanol-fed mouse models resulted in the decrease in blood triglyceride and the accumulation of lipid droplets in the liver. Interestingly, the transcriptional expression related to lipid metabolisms, such as sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1, and cytochrome P450 2E1, was decreased by WENL treatment in both ethanol-induced AML-12 hepatocytes and our chronic ethanol-fed mouse models. In addition, WENL effectively attenuated the ethanol induced activation of MAP kinases and NF-κB in AML-12 hepatocytes. Taken together, our results suggested that WENL can be effective in alleviating alcohol-induced hepatic lipid accumulation and may be used as potential candidate for the prevention of alcoholic fatty liver disease.
