A new diterpenoid, 14β-hydroxy-3-oxo-ent-kaur-16-ene (1), and a new nor-lignan, 8S-( - )-8-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzoyl)-dihydrofuran-8(8'H)-one (4), along with five known compounds were isolated from the twigs and leaves of Croton kongensis Gagnep. Their isolations were clarified and structures were elucidated by the extensive spectroscopic analyses,(More)
We report herein, a facile metabolite identification workflow on the antimicrobial strictosamide, which is derived from accurate mass measurement by a hybrid ion trap-TOF mass spectrometer. In step 1, the parent drug and metabolites in rat bile were separated on an HPLC column followed by ion trap-TOF mass spectrometer analysis after a single oral dose of(More)
BACKGROUND Polygala tenuifolia Willd is a Traditional Chinese Medicine used for the treatment of learning and memory deficits. Triterpenoid saponins, the main bioactive compounds of Polygala tenuifolia Willd, are easily hydrolyzed to polygalacic acid (PA). PURPOSE The present study was undertaken to investigate the neuroprotective effects of PA on(More)
This study was designed to investigate the action of timosaponin B-II, a main bioactive compound in Anemarrhena asphodeloides Bunge, on the prevention from high glucose-induced cytotoxicity and apoptosis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and the potential mechanisms involved. The results showed that compared with the normal control group,(More)
A rapid and sensitive ultra-performance liquid chromatography triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UPLC-TQ/MS) method was developed for simultaneous quantification of Akebia saponin D (ASD) and its five metabolites in intestinal mixtures of bacteria from human feces. After protein precipitation, the analytes and internal standard (IS), glycyrrhetinic acid,(More)
Hyperuricemia has been considered to be a key risk factor for kidney disease. The formation of uric acid crystals in the kidney further stimulates an intensive inflammatory response. Rhein possesses various pharmacological activities, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, antitumor, purgative effects, and so on. To our knowledge, no previous work has(More)
A simple, sensitive and specific high-performance liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method was developed and validated for the quantification of strictosamide in dog plasma. Strictosamide and internal standard (IS, ranolazine) extracted by liquid-liquid extraction with ethyl acetate were separated on a C(18) column using a gradient elution(More)

A series of novel derivatives of strictosamide were synthesized and biologically evaluated. Most of the new compounds exhibited improved activities than the parent compound strictosamide. Among them, compounds Ib and If possessed antiviral activities against influenza A virus (A/Jinan/15/90) with IC50 values of 4.12 and 12.35 μg/mL, respectively. Compound(More)
In search of novel anti-influenza agents with higher potency, a series of acylguanidine oseltamivir carboxylate analogues were synthesized and evaluated against influenza viruses (H1N1 and H3N2) in vitro. The representative compounds with strong inhibitory activities (IC50 <40nM) against neuraminidase (NA) were further tested against the NA from(More)
OBJECTIVE To study on the purification of strictosamide from Nauclea officinalis by macroporous resin to provide reference for production. METHOD The best macroporous resin was selected among 10 kinds of resins according to adsorption and desorption of the static adsorption experiments. The adsorption quantity, elution volume of water, concentration and(More)
