Camptothecin (CPT) belongs to a group of monoterpenoidindole alkaloids (TIAs) and its derivatives such as irinothecan and topothecan have been widely used worldwide for the treatment of cancer, giving rise to rapidly increasing market demands. Genes from Catharanthus roseus encoding strictosidine synthase (STR) and geraniol 10-hydroxylase (G10H), were(More)
Camptothecin (CPT) is a kind of modified monoterpene indole alkaloid firstly identified from woody plant Camptotheca acuminata, and its semisynthetic CPT analogs irinothecan and topothecan are clinically used for the treatment of various cancers throughout the world. However, the extraction of CPT from limited natural CPT-producing plant resources couldn’t(More)
The aim of this study was to prepare a liposomal delivery system for rapamycin and study its in vitro release characteristics. The results may provide a foundation for the further development of a liposomal delivery system for rapamycin and the establishment of a new active treatment method targeted towards the cellular components of athero-sclerotic(More)
Tropane alkaloids (TAs) such as anisodamine, anisodine, hyoscyamine and scopolamine are extensively used in clinical practice as anticholinergic agents. Anisodus acutangulus produces TAs in root tissue, and although several genes involved in scopolamine biosynthesis have been cloned, yet the biosynthetic pathway of TAs remains poorly understood.
