The hydroxyl radical (*OH) scavenging and ferrous ion chelating activities of four isoquinoline alkaloids isolated from Coptis chinensis Franch were studied for the identification of their structural characteristics to scavenge *OH. The *OH was generated via Fe(II)-catalazed Fenton reaction in this study and the reliable measurement of *OH scavenging(More)
In this study we show that panaxadiol, a ginseng saponin with a dammarane skeleton, induces apoptotic cell death by depolarization of mitochondrial membrane potential in human hepatoma SK-HEP-1 cells. Sequential activation of caspases-9, -3, and -7, but not of caspase-8, occurs after mitochondrial membrane depolarization and cytochrome c release from the(More)
A novel liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (LC-Q-TOFMS) method was developed for the simultaneous determination of 23 amino acids and 7 biogenic amines in food samples. These analytes were pre-column derivatized with dansyl chloride and then separated in an Acquity column (1.7 μm; 2.1 mm × 100 mm). The separation(More)
Betulin is a representative compound of Betula platyphylla, a tree species belonging to the Betulaceae family. In this investigation, we revealed that betulin showed anticancer activity on human lung cancer A549 cells by inducing apoptosis and changes in protein expression profiles were observed. Upon flow cytometry analysis, the surface of betulin-treated(More)
Three new dammarane glycosides were isolated from the processed ginseng (SG; Sun Ginseng). Their structure were determined to be 3beta,12beta-dihydroxydammar-20(21),24-diene-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl(1 --> 2)-beta-D-glucopyranoside; 3beta,12beta-dihydroxydammar-20(21),24-diene-3-O-beta-D- glucopyranoside and(More)
The preventive effect of 20(S)-ginsenoside Rg(3) (20(S)-Rg(3)) on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced oxidative tissue injury in rats was investigated in this study. The elevated serum nitrite/nitrate, glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, glutamic pyruvic transaminase and creatinine levels in LPS-treated control rats were significantly decreased following 15(More)
We show that panaxadiol (PD), a ginseng saponin with a dammarane skeleton, selectively interferes with the cell cycle in human cancer cell lines. PD inhibited DNA synthesis in a dose-dependent manner with IC50 values ranging from 0.8 to 1.2 micro M in SK-HEP-1 cells and HeLa cells. PD-treated cells were arrested at G1/S phase, which coincided well with(More)
The effects of ginsenosides Rg3(R), Rg3(S) and Rg5/Rk1 (a mixture of Rg5 and Rk1, 1:1, w/w), which are components isolated from processed Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer (Araliaceae), on memory dysfunction were examined in mice using a passive avoidance test. The ginsenosides Rg3(R), Rg3(S) or Rg5/Rk1, when orally administered for 4 days, significantly ameliorated(More)
The free radical scavenging activities of Panax ginseng C.A. MEYER are known to increase by heat processing. Phenolic acids and Maillard reaction products (MRPs) have been suggested as active free radical scavenging components from our previous research, but heat processing-induced chemical and activity changes of ginsenosides considering the Maillard(More)
The inhibitors of advanced glycation endproduct and oxidative stress, as well as N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists have received considerable interest because of their close association with renoprotective effects. The therapeutic potential of 20(S)-ginsenoside Rg(3) (20(S)-Rg(3)), isolated from Panax ginseng, against streptozotocin-induced(More)
