Betulin is a representative compound of Betula platyphylla, a tree species belonging to the Betulaceae family. In this investigation, we revealed that betulin showed anticancer activity on human lung cancer A549 cells by inducing apoptosis and changes in protein expression profiles were observed. Upon flow cytometry analysis, the surface of betulin-treated(More)
Ginseng is a well known herbal medicine in Asia, and ginsenoside Rg3 has anti-cancer and various pharmacological effects. In particular, 20S-ginsenoside Rg3 may increase the anti-proliferative effects of chemotherapy. The authors investigated the mechanism of the anti-proliferative effect of 20S-Rg3 at the protein level in HT29 colon cancer cells. MTT,(More)
Ginseng is a representative herbal medicine in Asia and various pharmacological activities of ginsenoside Rd isolated from ginseng have been reported. However, anti-cancer activity and mechanism of ginsenoside Rd in HT29 colon cancer cell lines were not studied yet. We performed proteomic analysis through two-dimensional gel electrophoresis,(More)
Stem cells can give rise to various cell types and are capable of regenerating themselves over multiple cell divisions. Pluripotency and self-renewal potential of stem cells have drawn vast interest from different disciplines, with studies on the molecular properties of stem cells being one example. Current investigations on the molecular basis of stem(More)
There have been a number of reports of dietary supplements contaminated with illegal adulterants that threaten consumers' health because of their adverse pharmacological effects. In the present study, a convenient and economic method was developed to detect illegal pharmaceutics, such as PDE-5 inhibitor and appetite suppressants, using liquid chromatography(More)
A novel analytical method for the simultaneous determination of the concentration of sildenafil and its five analogues in dietary supplements using solid-phase extraction assisted reversed-phase dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction based on solidification of floating organic droplet combined with ion-pairing liquid chromatography with an ultraviolet(More)
