ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Aconitum carmichaelii Debx. (Fuzi), a commonly use traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), has often been used in combination with Rhizoma Glycyrrhizae (Gancao) to reduce its toxicity due to diester diterpenoid alkaloids aconitine, mesaconitine, and hypaconitine. However, the mechanism of detoxication is still unclear.(More)
Salinomycin is a polyether ionophore antibiotic that is widely used in poultry and livestock. Exposure of humans to salinomycin via inhalation or ingestion can cause severe toxicity. The aim of the present work was to develop a simple and sensitive liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method for the rapid identification and(More)
The purpose of this paper was to study the effects of Hei-Shun-Pian, the processed lateral root of Aconitum carmichaelii Debx. (Ranunculaceae), on the metabolic profile of rats, to discuss the mechanism of toxicology and to find out the potential biomarkers of the toxic effects. Twenty male Wistar rats were divided into four groups (n=5) and each group were(More)
A GC/TOF-MS was applied to the determination of metabolites in human macrophages. The extraction conditions and quenching conditions were investigated and optimized. The results indicated that 0.9% w/v sodium chloride at 4°C was the most favorable condition to quench macrophage, 1 mL 50% ACN for 2 min in ice bath was the optimal condition to extract 5 ×(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common human malignancies and encompasses cancers of the colon and rectum. Although the gold-standard colonoscopy screening method is effective in detecting CRC, this method is invasive and can result in severe complications for patients. The purpose of this study was to determine differences in metabolites between(More)
