To explore the molecular mechanism of antioxidant damage of Achyranthes bidentata and Radix Paeoniae Alba is the main objective of study. Rats were treated with Achyranthes bidentata and Radix Paeoniae Alba. The total protein, nuclear protein and total ribonucleic acid were extracted. The protein levels and messenger ribonucleic acid levels were detected by western blot and quantitative polymerase chain reaction, respectively. The apoptosis of cells was detected and the cell viability and clone formation experiments were carried out. The serum malondialdehyde content of the Achyranthes bidentata and white peony group was lower than that of the control group, while the superoxide dismutase activity was higher than that of the control group, which was statistically significant (p<0.05). The level of nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 protein in the nucleus increased after treatment with medicated serum. The protein levels and the messenger ribonucleic acid levels of heme oxygenase 1 and superoxide dismutase increased significantly (p<0.05). The percentage of apoptosis, increased cell viability and number of clones treated with medicated serum were significantly higher than those treated with serum, indicating that the compatibility of Achyranthes bidentata and white peony can promote the survival of cells under oxidative stress. Under the joint action of protein kinase C delta and protein kinase, Achyranthes bidentata and Radix Paeoniae Alba up-regulate the expression of antioxidant enzymes.
