A high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with diode array detector and mass spectrometry (HPLC-DAD-MS) method was developed to evaluate the quality of Rhizoma Belamcandae (Belamcanda chinensis (L.) DC.) through establishing chromatographic fingerprint and simultaneous determination of seven phenolic compounds. The analysis was achieved on an Alltima(More)
Prohibitin (PHB), a potential tumor suppressor, has been shown to inhibit cell proliferation by repressing E2F-mediated transcription. But little is known about the role of PHB involved in tubulointerstitial fibrosis (TIF). Here, for the first time, we found PHB protein was positively expressed at normal renal tissues, strongly down-regulated in renal(More)
Although recombinant adenoviruses are used as vectors for delivering therapeutic genes to the airways of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, the effects of these vectors on the kinetics of airway epithelial cell growth have not been investigated. We tested whether E1, E3-deleted Ad vectors (Ad5-CMV-lacZ) affect the kinetics of cell proliferation of human airway(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Er Zhi Wan (EZW), a Chinese medicinal preparation, has been used clinically for treating menopausal syndrome for its kidney-invigorating function, which contains simply two herbs, Ecliptae Herba (EH) and Ligustri Lucidi Fructus (LLF). Although this herbal extract has been used for many years, there is no scientific basis about(More)
Herein, we test the hypothesis that a member of a formulated Chinese herbal decoction cannot be replaced by another herb. Danggui Buxue Tang (DBT) is being used as an example for illustration: this is a traditional decoction containing Radix Astragali (RA) and Radix Angelicae Sinensis (RAS) in a weight ratio of 5 to 1. Rhizoma Chuanxiong (RC) and RAS are(More)
The single site fluorescence and excitation spectra of free base porphin in an n-octane crystal at 5 K are reported. The vibrational frequencies of the ground and excited states (Qx, Qy, and B bands) have been determined from the spectra. The Qx region is very similar to the previously reported results from supersonic jet expansion. However, the Qy region(More)
