Polyphyllin Ι is a steroidal saponin isolated from the rhizoma of Paris polyphylla. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the anticancer effects of polyphyllin Ι in colorectal cancer and to elucidate the potential underlying molecular mechanisms. Using, CCK8 assay, flow cytometry, laser confocal microscope analysis and western blot, the anticancer effects of the polyphyllin Ι were analysed in colorectal cells. Our results indicate that polyphyllin Ι significantly decreased cell viability of HCT 116 cells and induced autophagy. Furthermore, we found that polyphyllin Ι induced autophagy in an ROS-dependent cell death and not related with PI3 K/AKT/mTOR pathway. We also provide evidence that excessive ROS triggered by polyphyllin Ι could induce G2/M phase arrest via regulating cycle proteins expression of cell cycle regulators, such as p21 and cyclinB1. In conclusion, polyphyllin Ι exhibit anticancer effect through ROS-dependent autophagy and induces G2/M arrest in colorectal cancer. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

Mitochondrial DNA Part B: Resources | Year: 2016

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Statilia maculate has been amplified and sequenced in this study. The mitogenome was 15,775bp long with two ribosomal RNA genes, 26 transfer RNA genes, 13 protein-coding genes, and a non-coding control region, with an A+T-rich characteristic (75.8%). Five identical tandem duplication of trnR were found in mitogenome of S. maculate, similar to the other mantis. According to the phylogenetic analysis, S. maculate had a closer genetic relationship with Statilia sp. © 2016 The Author(s). Published by Informa UK Limited.

Background and Objectives: Aconitum carmichaelii Debx. (Fuzi) is usually compatible with Rheum palmatum L. (Dahuang) in clinic. The study is conducted to investigate the influence of Dahuang on the pharmacokinetics of Fuzi. Methods: Twelve rats were randomly divided into two groups. Fuzi group was orally administered a single dose of 38.4 mg/kg total alkaloids from Fuzi, and Fuzi–Dahuang group was given 38.4 mg/kg total alkaloids from Fuzi and 76.8 mg/kg Dahuang anthraquinones at the same time. The plasma concentrations of aconitine (AC), mesaconitine (MC), and hypaconitine (HC), benzoylaconine (BAC), benzoylmesaconine (BMC), benzoylhypaconine (BHC), and aconine (ACN) were determined by ultra-performance liquid chromatography–quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometry method. The pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated including maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), area under the plasma concentration–time curve in all time-points (AUClast), apparent volume of distribution (Vz/F), apparent plasma clearance (CL/F), elimination half-life (T1/2), and time to achieve maximum concentration (Tmax). Results: AUClast of diester diterpene alkaloids (DDAs) were 58.20, 169.78, 278.48 ng·h/mL for AC, MC, and HC in Fuzi–Dahuang group which were remarkably lower than that in Fuzi group (71.62, 183.13, 410.59 ng·h/mL for AC, MC, HC). CL/F was significantly increased from 173.88 to 218.85 mL/h for AC, 433.22 to 800.21 mL/h for MC, 1150.61 to 1307.30 mL/h for HC after combination. However, with the significantly increased Cmax, AUClast of monoester diterpene alkaloids (MDAs) and amine diterpenoid alkaloids (ADAs) were 152.42, 1238.95, 287.96, 123.33 ng·h/mL for BAC, BHC, BMC, ACN in Fuzi–Dahuang group which were remarkably higher than that in Fuzi group (54.47, 1105.48, 200.75, 86.48 ng·h/mL for BAC, BHC, BMC, ACN). At the same time, CL/F was significantly decreased from 1030.15 to 607.09, 3594.06 to 1437.54, 1441.23 to 1310.14, and 391.30 to 239.50 mL/h for each one after combination. Conclusions: Fuzi diterpene alkaloids pharmacokinetics was greatly influenced by Dahuang which may account for the compatibility mechanism of effect-enhancing and toxicity-reducing. © 2016 Springer International Publishing Switzerland

A specific and sensitive UHPLC-qTOF-MS method was developed and validated for quantification of fuziline in rat plasma after oral administration of three dosages. The analyte was separated on an Acquity UPLC BEH C18 column with a total running time of 3min using a mobile phase of 0.1% formic acid aqueous solution and methanol (80:20, v/v) at a flow-rate of 0.25mL/min. The calibration curves for fuziline showed good linearity in the concentrations ranging from 1 to 200ng/mL with correlation coefficients >0.997. The precision, accuracy, recovery and stability were deemed acceptable. The method was applied to a pharmacokinetics study of fuziline in rats. The mean half-life was 5.93, 6.13 and 5.12h for 1, 2 and 4mg/kg oral administration of fuziline, respectively. The peak concentration and area under the concentration-time curve increased linearly with the doses. The sum of these results indicated that, in the range of the doses examined, the pharmacokinetics of fuziline in rat was based on first-order kinetics. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
