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 high-performance liquid chromatography with electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-ESI-MS/MS) method was developed to characterize and quantify 19 diterpenoid compounds in Isodon amethystoides simultaneously. By employing a Diamonsil C(18) column, 19 constituents were separated within 15 min using a gradient elution consisted of methanol containing(More)
Oridonin (ORI) is an active natural ent-kaurane diterpenoid ingredient originating from well-known traditional Chinese herb medicine and is expected to be pursued as a new anticancer agent. In the present study, a novel and efficient approach was developed for in vivo screening and identification of ORI metabolites using ultra high performance liquid(More)
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)
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)
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)
Ponicidin is an active natural ent-kaurane diterpenoid ingredient originating from many Isondon herbs and is expected to become a new anticancer agent. In this study, a practical strategy was developed for the identification of ponicidin metabolites in vivo and in vitro utilizing ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with hybrid triple(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)
