Traditional uses, phytochemistry, and pharmacology of the genus Acer (maple): A review.
Acer species can be used to treat rheumatism, hepatic disorders, eye disease, pain, etc. effectively and reports on the toxicity of Acer species to humans are very limited, and the major safety concern of these plants is in the veterinary field. Expand
Phytochemical and Biological Studies of Paeoniaceae
By Chun-Nian Hea, Yong Peng, Yao-Chun Zhang, Li-Jia Xua, Jing Gua, and Pei-Gen Xiao. Expand
Identification of autotoxic compounds from fibrous roots of Panax quinquefolium L.
Panax quinquefolium (American ginseng) is a perennial understory herb that has been widely used as a medicinal plant in China and other countries. Autotoxicity has been reported to be one of theExpand
Chemical taxonomy of tree peony species from China based on root cortex metabolic fingerprinting.
The combination of HPLC-DAD and multivariate analyses has great potential for guiding future chemotaxonomic studies to examine the potential pharmaceutical value of the effective constituents of tree peony species and appears to be able to clarify the confusion and skepticism associated with the reported morphology- and molecular phylogenetics-based taxonomy of treePeony species.

Three new oligostilbenes from the seeds of Paeonia suffruticosa.
Three new oligostilbenes were isolated from the seeds of Paeonia suffruticosa along with the eight known stil Benes, including trans-resveratrol, based on spectral analyses, including 1D and 2D NMR experiments. Expand
The resveratrol oligomers, cis- and trans-gnetin H, from Paeonia suffruticosa seeds inhibit the growth of several human cancer cell lines.
The findings demonstrate the promise of the natural compounds cis- and trans-gnetin H as candidates for cancer chemotherapy agents and arrest the cell cycle of cancer cells at the G0-G1 phase. Expand
Ginnalin A from Kujin tea (Acer tataricum subsp. ginnala) exhibits a colorectal cancer chemoprevention effect via activation of the Nrf2/HO-1 signaling pathway.
It is reported for the first time that ginnalin A is an activator of the Nrf2 signaling pathway in human colon cancer cells and can upregulate the mRNA expression levels of NRF2-related antioxidant genes Nrf 2, HO-1 and NQO1. Expand
Evaluation of the content variation of anthraquinone glycosides in rhubarb by UPLC-PDA
Al altitude was found to be the main factor that affects the anthraquinone glycoside content in rhubarb and this work provides a rapid, sensitive and accurate UPLC-PDA method for the simultaneous determination of six anthraqu one glycosides in Rhubarb. Expand
Transcriptome-Guided Mining of Genes Involved in Crocin Biosynthesis
A transcriptome analysis of the leaves, green fruits, and red fruits of G. jasminoides was performed to identify and predict the genes that encode key enzymes responsible for crocin production, compared with Crocus sativus. Expand
