Three new indole alkaloids, named kopsihainins A-C (1-3), and two known compounds, kopsinine (4) and methyl demethoxycarbonylchanofruticosinate (5), were isolated from the stems of Kopsia hainanensis. Their structures were determined using extensive spectroscopic methods. The two main constituents 4 and 5 exhibited significant antitussive activity in a(More)
Low selectivity is one of the major problems of currently used anticancer drugs, therefore, there is a high demand for novel, selective antitumor agents. In this study, the anticancer effects and mechanisms of guttiferone K (GUTK), a novel polyprenylated acylphloroglucinol derivative isolated from Garcinia cowa Roxb., were examined for its development as a(More)
Drug release simultaneously with carrier decomposition has been demonstrated in SiO2-drug composite nanoparticles. By creating a radial drug concentration gradient in the nanoparticle, controllable release of the drug is primarily driven by diffusion. Escape of the drug molecules then triggers the SiO2 carrier decomposition, which starts from the center of(More)
A simple, rapid, sensitive and selective liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method was developed and validated for the quantification of azithromycin in rabbit conjunctiva tissues using roxithromycin as internal standard. Following a deproteinization procedure, the samples were eluted isocratically at a flow rate of 0.3mL/min utilizing a mobile(More)
The photosensitizer (PS) methylene blue (MB) is confined in the close vicinity of an Au nanorod, by incorporating it into SiO2 during Au-core/SiO2-shell nanoparticle (NP) growth. Upon light irradiation of the Au@(SiO2-MB) NPs, generation of reactive oxygen species and their transport to the cytoplasm are directly responsible for significantly decreased cell(More)
Sustained drug release for a long duration is a desired feature of modern drugs. Using double-loaded self-decomposable SiO2 nanoparticles, we demonstrated sustained drug release in a controllable manner. The double loading of the drugs was achieved using two different mechanisms-the first one via a co-growth mechanism, and the second one by absorption. A(More)
A new polyoxypregnane aglycone, tenacigenin D (1), and seven new C21 steroid glycosides, tenacissimosides D-J (2-8), were isolated from the stems of Marsdenia tenacissima. Their structures were determined by interpretation of their 1D and 2D NMR and other spectroscopic data, as well as by comparison with published values for related known compounds.(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Multidrug resistance (MDR) of cancer is often associated with the overexpression of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, such as P-glycoprotein (P-gp), multidrug resistance-associated protein-1 (MRP-1) and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP or ABCG2), in cancer cells, which facilitates the active efflux of a wide(More)
The diamagnetic levitation as a novel ground-based model for simulating a reduced gravity environment has recently been applied in life science research. In this study a specially designed superconducting magnet with a large gradient high magnetic field (LG-HMF), which can provide three apparent gravity levels (μ-g, 1-g, and 2-g), was used to simulate a(More)
A polyoxypregnane aglycone, 12β-O-acetyl-11α-O-isobutyryltenacigenin B, and four polyoxypregnane glycosides with a pachybionic acid ester moiety, 12β-O-acetyl-3-O-(6-deoxy-3-O-methyl-β-D-allopyranosyl-(1→4)-β-D-oleandronyl)-11α-O-isobutyryltenacigenin B, 12β-O-acetyl-3-O-(6-deoxy-3-O-methyl-β-D-allopyranosyl-(1→4)-β-D-oleandronyl)-11α-O-tigloyltenacigenin(More)
