Antiviral Chinese medicinal herbs against respiratory syncytial virus.
Forty-four medicinal herbs were tested for antiviral activities against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) by means of the cytopathologic effect (CPE) assay, and anagyrine, oxymatrine, sophoranol, wogonin, and oroxylin A were identified as the potent anti-RSV components. Expand
Antiviral flavonoids from the root bark of Morus alba L.
A prenylated flavonoid, moralbanone, along with seven known compounds, including leachianone G and alpha-acetyl-amyrin, were isolated from the root bark of Morus alba L and showed potent antiviral activity and weak activity against herpes simplex type 1 virus. Expand
Differentiation and authentication of Panax ginseng, Panax quinquefolius, and ginseng products by using HPLC/MS.
It is important to stress that ginsenoside Rf and 24(R)-pseudoginenoside F11, which possess the same molecular weight and were found to have similar retention times under most LC conditions, can be unambiguously distinguished in the present HPLC/MS method. Expand
Chemical properties, mode of action, and in vivo anti-herpes activities of a lignin-carbohydrate complex from Prunella vulgaris.
The anti-HSV compound from P. vulgaris is a lignin-polysaccharide complex with potent activity against HSV-1 and HSV -2 and appears to be inhibiting viral binding and penetration into host cells. Expand

Authentication and quantitative analysis on the chemical profile of cassia bark (cortex cinnamomi) by high-pressure liquid chromatography.
It is suggested that five characteristic peaks by HPLC are suitable for distinguishing genuine cassia bark from the adulterants and could be applied in the quality control of this commodity. Expand
Identification of herbal medicinal materials using DNA barcodes
Reviewing efforts in the identification of herbal medicinal materials using the standard DNA barcodes and other DNA sequence‐based markers finds that efforts to identify herbal medicinal species and their adulterants are satisfactory. Expand
Congruence of Molecular, Morphological, and Biochemical Profiles in Rutaceae: a Cladistic Analysis of the Subfamilies Rutoideae and Toddalioideae
The inferred phylogeny lends support to merging these two subfamilies established by Engler based on different fruit types and shows that members of Euodia sensu lato should be placed in three different genera: Tetradium, EUodia, and Melicope. Expand
