Abstract
Cortex Fraxini is a widely used traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) used for the treatment of gout or hyperuricemia. In this study, a reliable and sensitive ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (UHPLC-FT-ICR-MS) method was developed for systematical screen and identification of the metabolic profile in rats after oral administration of Cortex Fraxini. The chromatographic separation was performed on a Universil XB C18 column (150 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.8 μm; Kromat, USA) and eluted by a gradient program. The identification was achieved on a Bruker high resolution spectrometer in positive ion mode. According to the result, a total of 81 constituents, including 29 prototype compounds and 52 metabolites were tentatively identified and validated by MS data and fragment ions from MS/MS spectra. The parents of all identified metabolites were assigned, and the metabolites were mainly coumarin derivatives. In conclusion, the newly established UHPLC-FT-ICR-MS method with high resolution and sensitivity was an effective approach for the identification of prototypes and metabolites of Cortex Fraxini in vivo. These results provided significant information about the metabolic profile of Cortex Fraxini in vivo and also laid a solid foundation for further pharmacokinetic and pharmacological research of this TCM.

Biological tissue imaging by secondary ion mass spectrometry has seen rapid development with the commercial availability of polyatomic primary ion sources. Endogenous lipids and other small bio-molecules can now be routinely mapped on the sub-micrometer scale. Such experiments are typically performed on time-of-flight mass spectrometers for high sensitivity and high repetition rate imaging. However, such mass analyzers lack the mass resolving power to ensure separation of isobaric ions and the m...

AbstractTraditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) have a long history for safely treating human diseases. Unlike western medicine, TCMs usually contain multiple components synergistically and holistically acting on the diseases. It remains a big challenge to represent rationally the in vivo process of multiple components of TCMs for understanding the relationship between administration and therapeutic effects. For years, efforts were always made to face the challenge, and the achievements were obviou...
