Previous results showed that a novel BH3 mimetic S1 could induce cell death in a wide range of cancer types in vitro through Bax/Bak-dependent apoptosis. We demonstrated that in addition to mitochondrial pathway apoptosis, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-associated apoptosis was also induced by S1. Moreover, S1 can induce autophagy in U251 cells, which(More)
Three new sterols (1-3) including an unprecedented ring A-seco natural product (1), five new terpenoids (4-8), and 15 known compounds were isolated from the bark of Melia azedarach. Their structures were elucidated by means of spectroscopic data, and the structure of 1 was confirmed by X-ray crystallography.
A total of 95 volatile compounds from the essential oil in buds of Syringa oblata Lindl (lilac) were identified by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) combined with heuristic evolving latent projections (HELP) and moving subwindow searching (MSS). The identified compounds are mainly aliphatic, terpenes and aromatic compounds. Their(More)
A new nor-ceanothane-type triterpenoid, breynceanothanolic acid (1), and seven novel 4α-methyl sterols, fruticosides A-G (2-8), were obtained from the roots of Breynia fruticosa. The new compound structures were established by means of extensive spectroscopic and chemical methods. Compounds 7 and 8 are sulfur-containing derivatives of the 4α-methyl sterols,(More)
Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, chemometric resolution method ( CRM) and overall volume integration method were used to analyze the essential components of herbal pair Herba Ephedrae-Ramulus Cinnamomi (HP HE-RC) and compare it with that of single herbs HE and RC. 72, 68, and 97 essential components in essential oil of HE, RC, and HP HE-RC were(More)
Previous studies have suggested that endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) is one of the mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy (DN). Histone acetylation modification can regulate the transcription of genes and is involved in the regulation of ERS. Valproate (VPA), a nonselective histone deacetylase inhibitor, has been reported to(More)
Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) can evade the immune response and establish chronic infection under natural and experimental conditions. Some genes related to antigen processing and presentation and to cytokine regulation are known to be involved in this response, but the precise mechanism through which each gene responds to CSFV infection remains(More)
The two-dimensional data obtained from GC-MS has been used qualitatively and quantitatively to determine the components of the volatile fractions of Schisandra chinensis obtained by six different extraction methods. Sub-window factor analysis (SFA) was employed to confirm the identities of components determined in different samples. With the help of SFA,(More)
The volatile chemical constituents of Artemisia capillaries (an important traditional Chinese medicine) were determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and sub-window factor analysis (SFA). Seventy-five components were separated and 43 of them were qualitatively and quantitatively determined, which represented about 89.03% of the total(More)
In this study, a novel chemometric algorithm is presented to facilitate the comparison of relevant chemical components from different herbal samples. This so-called multicomponent spectral correlative chromatography (MSCC) is developed to detect and decide whether two chromatographic clusters are correlated spectrally with each other. The target(More)
