There is increasing evidence supporting the cancer stem cell (CSC) hypothesis, which suggests that a population of tumor cells with stem cell characteristics is responsible for tumor growth, resistance, and recurrence as well as drug resistance. In colorectal cancer, the CD133 antigen defines distinct cell subpopulations that are rich in tumor-initiating(More)
Human placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells (P-MSCs) have drawn increasing attention in the field of stem cell research due to their potential in clinical applications as well as their rich and easy to procure cell source. While studies demonstrating the potential of P-MSCs for therapeutic transplantations have been documented, a clinically compliant(More)
A sensitive, specific, and rapid liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method was developed and validated for analysis of lasiodonin, oridonin, ponicidin, and rabdoternin A in rat plasma using sulfamethoxazole as an internal standard (IS). The plasma samples were pretreated and extracted by liquid-liquid extraction. Chromatographic separation was(More)
A novel method, HPLC-MS/MS was developed to qualitatively identify and quantitatively determine the 28 components including 19 diterpenoids, 6 phenolic acids and 3 flavonoids in Isodon rubescens, an important traditional Chinese medicine. The separation was performed on a C(18) column with linear gradient elution with 0.1% aqueous formic acid/methanol(More)
Oridonin (ORI) is an active natural ent-kaurene diterpenoid ingredient with notable anti-cancer and anti-inflammation activities. Currently, a strategy was developed to identify metabolites and to assess the metabolic profiles of ORI in vitro using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography-Triple/time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC-Triple-TOF-MS/MS).(More)
An ultra performance liquid chromatography coupled with a triple quadrupole electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS-MS) method was developed for analyzing and identifying the constituents of 11 compounds including berberine, epiberberine, berberrubine, jatrorrhizine, coptisine, palmatine, evodiamine, rutaecarpine, limonin, paeoniflorin and albiflorin(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the chemical differences between genunine Isodon japonica and its adulterants. A linear ion trap liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry analytical method has been developed for the identification and quantification of 14 major diterpenoids in I. japonica. Data acquisition was multiple reaction monitoring(More)
INTRODUCTION Isodon nervosa is a commonly used traditional Chinese medicine including diterpenoids, phenolic acids, triterpenoids and volatile oil. Qualitative and quantitative analysis of multi-components is important for its quality control. OBJECTIVE To establish a liquid chromatography-electrospray ionisation-mass spectrometry method for simultaneous(More)
A sensitive, specific and rapid liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method was developed and validated for analysis of ginsenoside Rb1, naringin, ginsenoside Rb2 and oridonin in rat plasma using sulfamethoxazole as an internal standard (IS). Separation was conducted out on an Agilent Eclipse XDB C18 column with liner gradient elution using(More)
