Abstract
Abstract A method of ultra high performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry was developed for the simultaneous quantification of 33 active components including 26 coumarins and 7 phenolic acid esters in Notopterygii Rhizoma et Radix (NRR). Chromatographic separation was achieved on a Kinetex® C18 column (100 mm × 2.1 mm i.d.; 2.6 μm) with a gradient elution in 18 min. Electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometric detection was conducted in the positive and negative ionization modes with multiple reaction monitoring. All of 33 analytes showed good linearity (R2 ≥ 0.9919) within the test range. The relative standard deviations of the precision, repeatability and stability were not exceeding 4.97%, and the recoveries were in the range of 85.37%–115.00%. The matrix effect on the response of target analyte was not obvious. The validated method was successfully applied to quantify the 33 components in ten batches of NRR samples. Quantitative results showed the coumarins and phenolic acid esters with large difference in level of content in the herb samples. Furthermore, hierarchical cluster analysis and principal component analysis were applied to classify and discriminate these samples. The variations of isoimperatorin, notopterol, bergamottin, nodakenin, phenethylferulate were suggested as important indicators of NRR quality. This work may serve for quality identification and comprehensive evaluation of NRR.

A new ferulic acid ester named 4-methyl-3-trans-hexenylferulate (1), together with eight known phenolic acid esters (2–9), was isolated from the methanolic extract of the roots and rhizomes of Notopterygium incisium. Their structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic techniques, including 2D NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. 4-Methoxyphenethyl ferulate (8) NMR data is reported here for the first time. The uptake and transepithelial transport of the isolated compounds 1–9 were inve...

Preceding work in our laboratory has revealed that scopoletin, one of the main bioactive coumarin from fruits of Morinda citrifolia, exerts anti-diabetic activity in in vitro partly by averting α glucosidase and α amylase action. However, its aorto/vaso protective impact-based research is still incomprehensible. The present study looks into the regulatory efficacy of scopoletin on aortic lipid profile, radical scavenging status, endothelial factors and aortic morphology in dyslipidemic rats. Rat...

Notopterygii Rhizoma et Radix (Qianghuo), including Notopterygium incisum Ting ex H. T. Chang (NI) and Notopterygium franchetii H. de Boiss (NF), is an important traditional Chinese medicine. Of these two plants, NI, is more commonly used and has a much higher price in the marketplace. To compare these two plants, a combination of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was carried out, thus obtaining an overall characterization for both vol...

Abstract Ainsliaea fragrans Champ, as a well-known herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, was often used in the treatment of gynecological diseases. Caffeoylquinic acids (CQAs) were the bioactive constituents of this plant medicine which primarily contains mono-CQAs (MCQA) and di-CQAs (DCQA). The biosynthesis showed that MCQAs were the precursor of DCQAs. Recent literatures manifested some particular features of DCQAs, different from MCQAs. Therefore it is apparent that a complete and scientific ...

Abstract To optimize the extraction of polysaccharides from Notopterygium franchetii Boiss (NFP), microwave-assisted aqueous two phase system (MAATPS) and response surface methodology (RSM) were employed. Results showed that the optimum conditions of MAATPS were as follows: ethanol concentration of 32 % (w/w), (NH4)2SO4 concentration of 24 % (w/w) and extraction time of 15 min. Under such condition, YS (the recovery of polysaccharides) was 80.57 % with 90.40 % of YP (the recovery of proteins). I...

Notopterol (NOT) is one of the main constituents of the traditional Chinese medicinal herb Notopterygium incisum Ting ex H.T. Chang has anti-rheumatism activity, but the target of NOT remains unknown. Here we have demonstrated that orally or intraperitoneal administration of NOT exhibits significant therapeutic effects on the collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) model in both DBA/1J and C57/BL6 mice. NOT treatment in vivo and in vitro reduces production of inflammatory cytokines and chemokines in TN...
