A UPLC/TOF-MS-based metabonomic study was conducted to assess the holistic efficacy of Traditional Chinese Medicine Shuanglong Formula (SLF) for myocardial infarction in rats. Thirty male Sprague−Dawley rats were randomly divided into five groups after surgery. The Panax ginseng group, Salvia miltiorrhiza group, and SLF group were treated with water extractions of Panax ginseng (PG), Salvia miltiorrhiza (SM), and SLF (the ratio of SM to PG was 3:7) at a dose of 5 g/kg·w·d for 21 consecutive days, respectively; the model group and sham surgery group were both treated with 0.9% saline solution. Urinary samples for metabonomic study, serum samples for biochemical measurement, and heart samples for histopathology were collected. As a result, metabonomics-based findings such as the PCA and PLS-DA plotting of metabolic state and analysis of potential biomarkers in urine correlated well to the assessment of serum biochemistry and histopathological assay, confirming that SLF exerted synergistic therapeutic effica...

The recent outbreak of renal failure in infants in China has been determined to be caused by melamine (Mel) and derivatives adulterated in the food. A metabonomic study was performed to evaluate the global biochemical alteration triggered by Mel ingestion in parallel with the acute renal toxicity in rats. Mel at 600, 300, and 100 mg/kg, cyanuric acid (Cya) at 100 mg/kg, and mixture of Mel and Cya (50 mg/kg each) were administered in five groups of Wistar rats, respectively, via oral gavage for 1...

Abstract An ultra-performance liquid chromatography/time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC/TOF-MS)-based metabolomic approach was developed to characterize the metabolic profile associated with isoproterenol (ISO)-induced myocardial infarction (MI). Analysis of the serum samples revealed distinct changes in the biochemical patterns of ISO-induced rats. A multivariate statistical method, supervised partial least squares-discriminant analysis (PLS-DA), was then used for screening of potential biom...

Ginseng is one of the most widely used herbal medicines and is reported to have a wide range of therapeutic and pharmacological applications. Ginsenosides, the major pharmacologically active ingredients of ginseng, appear to be responsible for most of the activities of ginseng including vasorelaxation, antioxidation, anti-inflammation and anti-cancer. Approximately 40 ginsenoside compounds have been identified. Researchers are now focused on using purified individual ginsenoside to reveal the sp...

To enhance therapeutic efficacy and reduce adverse effects, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) prescribe a combination of plant species/minerals, called formulae, based on clinical experience. Nearly 100,000 formulae have been recorded, but the working mechanisms of most remain unknown. In trying to address the possible beneficial effects of formulae with current biomedical approaches, we use Realgar-Indigo naturalis formula (RIF), which has been proven to be very effective in t...

Abstract In order to perform metabonomic investigations, it is necessary to generate comprehensive “global” metabolite profiles from complex samples, such as biofluids and tissues/tissue extracts. Analytical technologies based on liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS) are destined to become a major source of global metabolite profiling data. Here, we describe and compare the utility of various analytical strategies and techniques currently used for LC-MS (capillary, high-perf...

In this paper, an optimized protocol was established and validated for the metabonomic profiling in rat urine using GC/MS. The urine samples were extracted by methanol after treatment with urease to remove excessive urea, then the resulted supernatant was dried, methoximated, trimethylsilylated, and analyzed by GC/MS. Forty-nine endogenous metabolites were separated and identified in GC/MS chromatogram, of which 26 identified compounds were selected for quantitative analysis to evaluate the line...

Abstract Monascus mold produces useful bioactive compounds such as Monascus pigments, monacolin K, and ergosterol. In this study, metabolomics analysis was used to investigate the metabolic profile changes in Monascus aurantiacus Li AS3.4384 (MALA) induced by genistein at different fermentation times using UHPLC-Q-TOF-MS/MS. The addition of genistein was found to not only reduce citrinin but also suppress significant differential metabolites. A total of 21 significant differential metabolites we...

Abstract Monascus comprises purple-red molds. Various compounds can be obtained from these species, including statins and food-safe yellow, red, and orange pigments. However, the secondary metabolite citrinin, a mycotoxin, is produced during the late stages of growth. Citrinin biosynthesis should be reduced to apply Monascus pigments safely. Fortunately, this can be achieved by the addition of flavonoids (genistein, daidzein, apigenin, and kaempferol) . However, the effects of these flavonoids o...

Rhizome of Curcuma wenyujin, which is called EZhu in China, is a traditional Chinese medicine used to treat blood stasis for many years. However, the underlying mechanism of EZhu is not clear at present. In this study, plasma metabolomics combined with network pharmacology were used to elucidate the therapeutic mechanism of EZhu in blood stasis from a metabolic perspective. The results showed that 26 potential metabolite markers of acute blood stasis were screened, and the levels were all revers...
