Separation and purification of four compounds from Desmodium styracifolium using off-line two-dimensional high-speed counter-current chromatography.

An off-line 2D high-speed counter-current chromatography technique in preparative scale has been successfully applied to separate and purify the main compounds from the ethyl acetate extract of

Separation of epimeric aromatic acid (-)-menthol esters by countercurrent chromatography using hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin as an additive.

The complete separation of five pairs of epimeric ester was obtained with the purity being over 98% for each peak fractions, as determined by high-performance liquid chromatography.

Preparative separation of phytosterol analogues from green alga Chlorella vulgaris using recycling counter-current chromatography.

A recycling counter-current chromatographic approach was proposed for preparative separation of two analogue sterols from crude extract of C. vulgaris and the structures of two sterols were identified by using NMR spectroscopy.

Enantiomeric separation of oxybutynin by recycling high-speed counter-current chromatography with hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin as chiral selector.

Recycling high-speed counter-current chromatography was successfully applied to the preparative separation of oxybutynin enantiomers and the influence of factors on the chiral separation process, including the concentration of chiral selector, the equilibrium temperature, the pH value of the aqueous phase were investigated.

Separation of phenolic acids and flavonoids from Trollius chinensis Bunge by high speed counter-current chromatography.

Separation of nine compounds from Salvia plebeia R.Br. using two-step high-speed counter-current chromatography with different elution modes.

This study demonstrates that high-speed counter-current chromatography is a useful and flexible tool for the separation of components from a complex sample.



Enantiomer separation by countercurrent chromatography using cinchona alkaloid derivatives as chiral selectors.

The results here presented account for the high potential of CCC as a preparative enantiomer separation technique.

Isogambogic acid and isomorellinol from Garcinia hanburyi

Three xanthone derivatives, gambogic acid, isogambogic acid and isomorellinol, were isolated from the dried latex of Garcinia hanburyi. Two of them, isogambogic acid and isomorellinol, are new.

Gambogic acid and epigambogic acid, C-2 epimers with novel anticancer effects from Garcinia hanburyi.

Results suggested that both epimers were not multidrug resistance (MDR) substrates and were tested for their inhibitory effects against six human cytochrome P-450 enzymes.

Crystal structure of the pyridine salt of gambogic acid

Pyridinium gambogate, (C5H6N)+(C38H43O8)−, crystallizes in space group P212121 with cell parameters a = 9.536(3) Å, b = 18.502(4) Å, c = 22.223(4) Å, Z = 4. The X-ray structural analysis [R(F) =

Gambogic acid inhibits proliferation of human lung carcinoma SPC-A1 cells in vivo and in vitro and represses telomerase activity and telomerase reverse transcriptase mRNA expression in the cells.

It is safe, at least in part, to conclude that the down-regulating telomerase activity of GA by modifying partly the expression of hTERT mRNA in SPC-A1 cells may be one possible mechanism for the inhibitory activity ofGA in the cells.

Gambogic acid induces apoptosis and regulates expressions of Bax and Bcl-2 protein in human gastric carcinoma MGC-803 cells.

It is concluded that GA does not affect normal cells, but that it can induce apoptosis in tumor cells selectively and there were marked morphological changes.
