A simple and sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of plasma concentrations of five polyamines in normal and Hepatoma-22 mice, and mice treated with Mylabris and Acanthopanax senticosus was developed by HPLC-ESI-MS. Male Kunming mice were divided into nine groups, a control group (inoculation without treatment), a positive group (Cyclophosphamide), treatment groups [Mylabris (4, 8, 16 mg/kg), Acanthopanax senticosus (6, 12, 24 g/kg)] and a normal group (without inoculation). Twenty-four hours after the last administration, plasma samples were collected. The derived polyamines were separated on a C18 column by a gradient elution using methanol–water with excellent linearity within the range from 2.5 to 1000 ng/mL. Polyamines were confirmed as useful biochemical markers of hepatoma. The differences in anti-cancer therapeutic efficacy between Mylabris and Acanthopanax senticosus might contribute to the variability of polyamine levels in vivo. This HPLC-ESI-MS method was successfully applied to investigate the relationship between polyamines and cancer in mice and might be a useful method to test the activity of potential anti-tumor drugs.

Abstract A simple and sensitive HPLC/Q-TOF MS method for simultaneous determination of 1,3-diaminopropane, putrescine, cadaverine, spermidine, spermine and acetyl-spermine in human urine was developed in electrospray-ionization source by positive ion mode. The samples were firstly pretreated by 10% HClO4 and then derivatized by benzoyl chloride with 1,6-diaminohexane as internal standard. The derived polyamines were separated on a C18 column by a gradient elution with methanol–water, and then se...

Abstract In recent years, many endogenous peptides have been identified by screening combinatory phage display peptide library, which play important roles in the process of angiogenesis. A heptapeptide, ATWLPPR, binds specifically to NRP-1 and selectively inhibits VEGF165 binding to VEGFR-2. Another heptapeptide, NLLMAAS, blocks both Ang-1 and Ang-2 binding to Tie-2 in a dose-dependent manner. In the present study, we aimed to connect ATWLPPR (V1) with NLLMAAS (V2) via a flexible linker, Ala-Ala...

Chitosan nanoparticles have been synthesized as potential anticancer agents, and evaluated, in vitro, against various cancer cell lines. In this study, in vivo antitumor activity of chitosan nanoparticles against Sarcoma-180 and mouse hepatoma H22 was investigated. Chitosan nanoparticles showed significant antitumor activity in vivo. The doses and particle size made a great effect on their efficacy.

Abstract Mylabris is used in clinical therapy, but is always accompanied by cystitis. The toxic effects of mylabris on bladder are attributed to its active principle: cantharidin. In the present study, we explored how cantharidin induces cytotoxicity in the bladder. Human bladder carcinoma cell line T 24 cells were used as target cells, and human colon carcinoma HT 29 cells as native cells. Cantharidin exhibited acute cytotoxicity in the T 24 cells, and IC 50 was 21.8, 11.2 and 4.6 μM after trea...

Abstract Antitumor and immunomodulatory activities of an aqueous extract (GF100) of Acanthopanax senticosus were examined. In experimental lung metastasis of colon26-M3.1 carcinoma cells, intravenous (i.v.) administration of GF100 2 days before tumor inoculation significantly inhibited lung metastasis in a dose-dependant manner. The i.v. administration of GF100 also exhibited the therapeutic effect on tumor metastasis of colon26-M3.1 cells, when it was injected 1 day after tumor inoculation. In ...

Polyamines are essential for the growth and function of normal cells. They interact with various macromolecules, both electrostatically and covalently and, as a consequence, have a variety of cellular effects. The complexity of polyamine metabolism and the multitude of compensatory mechanisms that are invoked to maintain polyamine homoeostasis argue that these amines are critical to cell survival. The regulation of polyamine content within cells occurs at several levels, including transcription ...

Abstract We investigated the mechanism of the immunomodulatory action of polysaccharide (ASP) isolated from a cell culture of Acanthopanax senticosus . ASP was found to directly increase the proliferation and differentiation of B cells, and the cytokine production of macrophage, but not the proliferation and cytokine production of T cells. Since ASP cannot penetrate the cell membrane due to its large molecular mass, such cellular activation may be caused by the surface binding of ASP to receptor...

Abstract The aliphatic polyamines, putrescine, spermidine and spermine, are normal cell constituents that play important roles in cell proliferation and differentiation. The equilibrium between cellular uptake and release and the balanced activities of biosynthetic and catabolic enzymes of polyamines are essential for normal homeostasis in the proliferation and functions of cells and tissues. However, the intracellular polyamine content increases in hyperplastic or neoplastic growth. Although th...

The essential requirement for polyamines for normal cell growth and differentiation may be partly attributed to their influence on gene expression, a process regulated by the acetylation state of nucleosomal histones. We used transgenic mice to examine the effects of constitutive expression of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), a key rate-limiting enzyme in polyamine biosynthesis, on histone acetylation in epithelial cells in skin. As compared with the skin of normal littermate mice, both intrinsic ...

Abstract Spermine, spermidine, putrescine and cadaverine are aliphatic amines widely spread in the human body. Their concentrations together with their acetyl conjugates increase significantly in the biological fluids and the affected tissues of cancer patients. Their concentrations decrease with the improvement in the patient’s condition on multiple therapy. Various chromatographic techniques are frequently used in monitoring concentrations of di- and polyamines in cancer. Among these technique...

Compound banmao capsule (CBC) is a traditional Chinese medicinal formula composed of extracts from 11 organisms. The present study investigated the mechanism of CBC on the biological behavior of human leukemia cell lines using seropharmacological methods. CBC-containing rat serum was prepared by intragastrical administration of CBC to rats. The proliferation of human leukemia HL60 and K562 cell lines was assayed by measuring cell viability with the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(3-carboxymethox...

Conventional chemotherapy for leukemia inevitably causes systemic toxicity. Acanthopanax senticosus, a naturally occurring herb used in traditional Chinese medicine, has been found to be a multipotent bioflavonoid with great potential in the prevention and treatment of malignant diseases. However, the mechanism underlying the action of A. senticosus in epigenetic regulation is poorly understood. In the study described here, we focused on the efficacy of A. senticosus in inducing apoptosis of leu...

For hundreds of years, cancer has remained a mystery, threatening the life expectancy and quality of all human beings. Early studies of cancer concluded that all cancers are influenced by genetic variation (germline and/or somatic), environmental agents, and/or health behaviors. Thus, a comprehensive description of the human genome is essential in order to understand the biology of cancer.1 Over the past decade, our knowledge of genomics has experienced substantial progress because of the rapid ...
