Identification of Echinacoside Metabolites Produced by Human Intestinal Bacteria Using Ultraperformance Liquid Chromatography-Quadrupole Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry.
An approach combining ultraperformance liquid chromatography-quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry with MS(E) technology and MetaboLynx software for rapid analysis of the ECH metabolic profile produced by human intestinal bacteria was established and hydroxytyrosol (HT) and 3-hydroxyphenylpropionic acid (3-HPP) were found to be the two bioactive metabolites of ECH.
Ardipusilloside-I Metabolites from Human Intestinal Bacteria and Their Antitumor Activity
Glycosylation is demonstrated as a primary pathway of ADS-I metabolism in human intestinal bacteria, and suggests that the pharmacological activity ofADS-I may be mediated, at least in part, by its metabolites.
Metabolites study on 5-O-methylvisammioside in vivo and in vitro by ultra high performance liquid chromatography coupled to quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
5-O-Methylvisammioside is one of major chromones of Radix Saposhnikoviae possessing definite pharmacological activities, but there are few reports with respect to the metabolism of
An integrated strategy for profiling the chemical components of Scutellariae Radix and their exogenous substances in rats by ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
The metabolism of SR, as a whole, was systemically revealed for the first time, and this work provided meaningful information for pharmacokinetics study and pharmacological analysis of SR in future work.
Steroids from herbs of Reineckia carnea and their anticomplement activities
A new polyhydroxylated pregnane, named lβ,2β,3β,4β,5β,6β-hexolhydroxy-pregn-16-en-20-one, along with nine known steroidal saponins were isolated from the whole plant of Reineckia carnea and showed anticomplement activity.
Therapeutic potential of phenylethanoid glycosides: A systematic review
The latest information on the biological activities, structure–activity relationships, mechanisms, and especially the clinical applications of PhGs will be reviewed and factors leading to the low bioavailability will be analyzed.
Phenylethanoid Glycosides: Research Advances in Their Phytochemistry, Pharmacological Activity and Pharmacokinetics
New findings on PhGs over the past 10 years are summarized, concerning the new structures, their bioactivities, including neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antivirus, cytotoxic, immunomodulatory, and enzyme inhibitory effects, and pharmacokinetic properties.


Metabolism of anthocyanins and their phenolic degradation products by the intestinal microflora.
Intestinal bacterial hydrolysis is indispensable to absorption of 18β‐glycyrrhetic acid after oral administration of glycyrrhizin in rats
These findings indicate that orally administered glycyrrhizin is poorly absorbed from the gut, but is hydrolysed to 18β‐glycyrrhetic acid by intestinal bacteria such as E. sp.
Fecal metabolic activities of herbal components to bioactive compounds
The results suggest that the metabolic activity of herbal components to bioactive compounds may be a factor of constitutional classification, and could be available for constitutional classifications, if the constitutional herbal medicines were used.
The gastrointestinal microbiota as a site for the biotransformation of drugs.
Antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of methanol extracts of Evax pygmaea (Asteraceae) growing wild in Tunisia
Antimicrobial activity of methanolic extracts obtained from the aerial parts of Evax pygmaea was tested against five bacteria and two strains of phytopathogenic fungi using the agar diffusion and
Metabolism of constituents in Huangqin-Tang, a prescription in traditional Chinese medicine, by human intestinal flora.
All the results suggested that the glycosides of many medicinal herbs could be converted to aglycones by HIF, and the metabolism of most glycoside was improved in the compound prescription.
Improvement of intestinal absorption of forsythoside A in weeping forsythia extract by various absorption enhancers based on tight junctions.
Simultaneous determination of 12 major constituents in Forsythia suspensa by high performance liquid chromatography--DAD method.
Intestinal absorption of forsythoside A in in situ single-pass intestinal perfusion and in vitro Caco-2 cell models
The results suggest that the intestinal absorption of FTA may occur through passive diffusion, and the predominant absorption site may be in the upper part of small intestine.
Antibacterial spectrum of plant polyphenols and extracts depending upon hydroxyphenyl structure.
The relationship between the structure and antibacterial activity of 22 polyphenols was analyzed by using minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) as a criterion against 26 species of bacteria which
