The present study was performed to clarify whether the crude saponins from stems and leaves of Panax quinquefolium inhibited lipase activity in vitro, and prevented obesity induced in mice by feeding a high-fat diet for 8 weeks. For in vitro experiments, assay for the inhibitory effects of saponins from stems and leaves of Panax quinquefolium on pancreatic(More)
S-phase kinase-associated protein-2 (Skp2) is overexpressed in human cancers and associated with poor prognosis. Skp2 acts as an oncogenic protein by enhancing cancer cell growth and tumor metastasis. The present study has demonstrated that small hairpin RNA (shRNA)-mediated downregulation of Skp2 markedly inhibits the viability, proliferation, colony(More)
Three new triterpenoid saponins, acanthopanaxosides A (1), B (7), and C (13), were isolated from the leaves of Acanthopanax senticosus, together with 12 known saponins. The structures of these new saponins were established as 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->2)-alpha-L-arabinopyranosyl-30-nor-olean-12,20(29)-dien-28-oic acid(More)
An efficient pressurized liquid extraction (PLE) technique was employed in extracting chromones from the roots of Saposhnikovia divaricata (Radix Saposhnikoviae). Chromones were quantified and analyzed by LC-ESI/MS. The PLE procedure was optimized, validated and compared with the other conventional extraction techniques. PLE gained the best result due to(More)
The water extract of Juglans mandshurica fruit has been shown to strongly inhibit pancreatic lipase in vitro in a dose-dependent manner. The extract was observed to inhibit the normal elevation in the level of plasma triacylglycerol in rats 2–4 h after oral administration of a lipid emulsion. Fourteen compounds isolated from J. mandshurica fruit were(More)
A novel tricyanofuran dye was synthesized and the dye-in-polymer films were fabricated by spin-coating process. The spectroscopic properties of the dye in the solutions and polymer films were investigated by the absorption spectra and fluorescence emission spectra. It is found that the absorption and fluorescence maxima are largely red-shifted along with(More)
In this paper, the chiral separation of cefadroxil was studied by capillary electrochromatography. Monolithic capillary column was prepared for the separation of cefadroxil enantiomers. The optimum buffer contained 28.5 mmol/L sodium acetate, 0.95% (v/v) acetic acid, 19 mmol/L beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) and 5% (v/v) isopropanol in formamide solution (pH(More)
