OBJECTIVE Polygonatum kingianum is a traditional Chinese medicine commonly used to treat diabetes and hyperlipidemia. Polysaccharides from Polygonatum kingianum could regulate glucose and lipid metabolism in high-fat diet (HFD) rats. METHODS The gel permeation chromatography (GPC), liquid chromatography (HPLC) and chemical analysis were used to determine the molecular weight, monosaccharide composition, protein, polysaccharide and uronic acid content of the polysaccharide from Polygonatum… Expand

Intake of total saponins and polysaccharides from Polygonatum kingianum affects the gut microbiota in diabetic rats.
The results suggested that, compared to the normal rats, the structure of gut microbiota was significantly changed in diabetic rats, and oral administration with TSPK and PSPK could prevent T2D by its regulation role on the gut microbiota. Expand
Integrated metabolomic profiling for analysis of antilipidemic effects of Polygonatum kingianum extract on dyslipidemia in rats
P. kingianum alleviates HFD-induced dyslipidemia by regulating many endogenous metabolites in serum, urine and liver samples and may be a promising lipid regulator to treat dys Lipidemia and associated diseases. Expand
Antidiabetic effect of total saponins from Polygonatum kingianum in streptozotocin-induced daibetic rats.
TSPK could effectively alleviate hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia in diabetic rats and may be used as adjuvant therapy to control blood glucose and insulin resistance in type 2 diabetic individuals. Expand
Antioxidant activities of different fractions of polysaccharide conjugates from green tea (Camellia Sinensis)
Three fractions of water-soluble polysaccharide conjugates, coded as TPC-1, TPC-2, and TPC-3, were isolated and purified from low-grade green tea (Camellia sinensis) by absorbent chromatography andExpand
