To determine the preventive effect of dietary rutin on oxidative damages occurring in the digestive tract, 13-hydroperoxyoctadecadienoic acid and hemoglobin were exposed to Caco-2 intestinal cells after the pretreatment with colonic rutin metabolites. Among four catechol-type metabolites, quercetin and 3,4-dihydroxytoluene exerted significant protection on 13-hydroperoxyoctadecadienoic and hemoglobin-dependent lipid peroxidation of this epithelial cell. Compared with quercetin, a much lower concentration allowed 3,4-dihydroxytoluene to maximize the protective effect, though it needed a longer pre-incubation period. Neither quercetin nor 3,4-dihydroxytoluene affected the expression of peroxiredoxin-6 protein, which comprises the cellular antioxidant defense system. It is concluded that 3,4-dihydroxytoluene is a plausible rutin colonic metabolite that can suppress oxidative damages of intestinal epithelial cells by directly inhibiting lipid peroxidation. This result may illuminate the preventive role of dietary rutin against colorectal cancer incidence in relation to the consumption of red and processed meat.
