RATIONALE Limonoids, characterized by a triterpenoid skeleton with a furan ring, are unique secondary metabolites widely distributed in the families of Rutaceae, particularly in Citrus species and Meliaceae. Studies on health benefits have demonstrated that limonoids have a range of biological activities. Dietary intake of citrus limonoids may provide a(More)
Cinobufacino injection is purified from water extraction of the skin of Bufo bufo gargarizans, which has been widely used for various cancers in clinic with significant anti-tumor effects. Bufadienolides were regarded as the main active constituents of cinobufacino injection in previous reports. In present study, 6 bufadienolides were isolated and purified(More)

RATIONALE Limonin and obacunone are two major limonoids distributed in the Rutaceae and Meliaceae families. Their defined anti-tumor activity is closely connected with the furan ring and the multi-carbonyls in their structures. In vivo and in vitro biotransformations may influence their structures and further change their effects. The metabolic profiles of(More)
Marsdenia tenacissima, which is widely used as an anticancer herb in traditional Chinese medicine, has been shown to possess anticancer activity. However, its metabolic profile is poorly investigated. Tenacigenin B is the major steroidal skeleton of C-21 steroids in M. tenacissima. Tenacissoside H and Tenacissoside I are detected at relatively high levels(More)
