: Semen descurainiae oil (SDO) is an important traditional Chinese medicine that was recently discovered to have the function of reducing blood lipids. Metabolomics analyses of plasma, liver and kidney in rats were performed using 1 H-NMR and LC-MS to illuminate the lower blood lipid concentration effect of SDO, and niacin was considered as the active control. The measure of total cholesterol (TC) and low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in plasma showed that SDO treatment decreased significantly the content of TC and LDL-C. An orthogonal partial least squares-discriminant analysis approach was applied to identify the different metabolic profiles of plasma, liver and kidney in rats and to detect related potential biomarkers. The results suggested that the metabolic profiles of the control group and hyperlipidemia group showed significant difference and the SDO and niacin group had effective anti-hyperlipidemia function. The biomarkers primarily concern lipid metabolism, amino acid metabolism and glycometabolism, and the change in biomarkers indicated that hyperlipidemia could cause the unbalance of these metabolic pathways in vivo. SDO reduced blood lipids by repairing amino acid and lipid metabolism.

Abstract The scant number of available metabolomics biomarkers does not reflect the extent of the research in this field. Looking for the reasons of failure, the authors, as analytical chemists, critically discuss each of the steps in the analytical process that requires improvements. They find insufficient information about how the experimental part is developed. After revising the steps from sampling to obtainment of the analytical sample (from typical samples such as blood and urine to others...

Abstract Hyperlipidemia in the male albino Wistar rats was induced by Triton WR – 1339. The treatment of the hyperlipidemic animals with the ethanol extract of Cassia auriculata flower (Et-CAF) exhibited a dose dependent reduction in serum triacylglycerol, total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL), very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) similar to the hyperlipidemic animals treated with standard drug atorvastatin. Hyperlipidemia altered the protein and mRNA expression levels of the key genes...

Abstract This study was conducted to evaluate the regulating dyslipidemia effect of polysaccharides from Pleurotus ostreatus (POP) on fat-emulsion-induced hyperlipidemia rats. A plasma metabonomics method based on ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry was applied to analyze the holistic mechanism of POP in a hyperlipidemia rat model. Multivariate statistical approaches such as principal component analysis and orthogonal projection to lat...

Abstract Biomarkers of serum fatty acids in hyperlipidemia need to be elucidated. 90 SPF KM male mice were randomly divided into 18 groups (n = 5/group), control groups, and high fat diet (HFD) groups at 9 time points. On day 7, 10, 15, 18, 21, 24, 28, 31, and 35, the mice were sacrificed; blood was collected into tubes from the eyes, serum samples for clinical biochemistry assays and gas chromatography–mass spectroscopy were attained after centrifugation, and the contents of serum fatty acids w...

Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Cortex Fraxini (CF) is an important traditional Chinese herbal medicine used for the treatment of gout and hyperuricemia. Aim of the study The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-hyperuricemic effect of CF on hyperuricemic rats and to investigate its mechanism of action. Materials and methods Metabolomics based on NMR and MS was used to study the therapeutic effect of CF on hyperuricemic rats. Plasma determination of uric acid (UA) showed that CF tr...

The amino acid glutamate is a major metabolic hub in many organisms and as such is involved in diverse processes in addition to its role in protein synthesis. Nitrogen assimilation, nucleotide, amino acid, and cofactor biosynthesis, as well as secondary natural product formation all utilize glutamate in some manner. Glutamate also plays a role in the catabolism of certain amines. Understanding glutamate’s role in these various processes can aid in genome mining for novel metabolic pathways or th...

A rapid and sensitive LC-MS/MS method with good accuracy and precision was developed and validated for the pharmacokinetic study of quercetin-3-O-β-d-glucopyranosyl-7-O-β-d-gentiobioside (QGG) in Sprague-Dawley rats. Plasma samples were simply precipitated by methanol and then analyzed by LC-MS/MS. A Venusil® ASB C18 column (2.1 × 50 mm, i.d. 5 μm) was used for separation, with methanol-water (50:50, v/v) as the mobile phase at a flow rate of 300 μL/min. The optimized mass transition ion-pairs (...

Abstract Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the main cause of death globally. There is a need for the development of specific diagnostic methods, more effective therapeutic procedures as well as drugs, which can decrease the risk of deaths in the course of CVDs. For this reason, better understanding and explanation of molecular pathomechanisms of CVDs are essential. Metabolomics is focused on analysis of metabolites, small molecules which reflect the state of an organism in a certain point of ti...
