Abstract Ethnopharmacological relevance Danggui Buxue Tang (DBT) has been used to promote hematopoiesis and relieve myelosuppression in China. Antibiotics can cause myelosuppression through gut microbiota disorders. Aim of the study: This study aims to explore the way of DBT to alleviate the metabolic disorder caused by antibiotics. Materials and methods In this study, 16S rRNA sequencing was used to detect the change of gut microbiota, metabolomics to analyze the change of metabolites. Correlation analysis was used to establishment the correlation between gut microbiota and metabolites. PICRUST 2 was used to predict the function of gut microbiota. Results Results showed that eighty-two genera of gut microbiota were affected by antibiotic, while twelve were significantly restored after DBT. Seventy-four potential metabolites were significantly different from the antibiotics and DBT. We found significant recovery by the Bacteroides and Rikenellaceae RC9 after DBT. The metabolic pathways influenced by the antibiotic treatment included primary and secondary bile biosynthesis, etc. The metabolic pathways that could be restored after DBT included the primary and secondary bile acid biosynthesis pathway, etc. Through correlation analysis, we found a correlation between the Bacteroides, Rikenellaceae_RC9_gut_group and other potential differential metabolisms such as those of taurodeoxycholic acid, N-phenylacetyl glycine, etc. The functional prediction showed that the biosynthesis of primary bile acid, secondary bile acid was significantly affected. Conclusions DBT can restore the gut and reverse the metabolic disorder caused by antibiotics through Bacteroides, and it provides a new medical idea regarding the gut microbiota balance.

Abstract Azolla imbricata (Roxb.) Nakai is used as a traditional Chinese medicine. However, very limited information is available on its effective components. Traditional procedures for discovering natural bioactive compounds, especially for minor ones, are usually time-consuming and labor-intensive. Therefore, an efficient approach using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography–quadrupole time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry (UHPLC–QTOF–MS/MS) combined with multicomponent knockout and bi...

Recently, increasing evidence has suggested the association between gut dysbiosis and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) progression, yet the role of gut microbiota in AD pathogenesis remains obscure. Herein, we provide a potential mechanistic link between gut microbiota dysbiosis and neuroinflammation in AD progression. Using AD mouse models, we discovered that, during AD progression, the alteration of gut microbiota composition leads to the peripheral accumulation of phenylalanine and isoleucine, which ...

Atractylodis Rhizoma (AR), a kind of well-known traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), has a long history of being used to treat spleen-deficiency syndrome (SDS). Stir frying with bran is a common method of processing AR, as recorded in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, and is thought to enhance the therapeutic effect in TCM. Our previous studies have confirmed that bran-fried AR is superior to raw AR in terms of the improvement of gastrointestinal tract function. However, the biological mechanism of acti...

: Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that belongs to the vitamin B complex and which is an essential nutrient of all living organisms from bacteria to man. In eukaryotic cells biotin functions as a prosthetic group of enzymes, collectively known as biotin-dependent carboxylases that catalyze key reactions in gluconeogenesis, fatty acid synthesis, and amino acid catabolism. Enzyme-bound biotin acts as a vector to transfer a carboxyl group between donor and acceptor molecules during carboxylation r...

Abstract Trillions of microbes have evolved with and continue to live on human beings. With the rapid advances in tools and technology in recent years, new knowledge and insight in cross-talk between the microbes and their hosts have gained. It is the aim of this work to critically review and summarize recent literature reports on the role of microbiota and mechanisms involved in the progress and development of major human diseases, which include obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, di...

Danggui Buxue Tang (DBT) is an ancient herbal mixture containing Astragali Radix and Angelicae Sinensis Radix, and which is a commonly consumed for “Qi-invigorating” as a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The pharmacological activities of DBT in anti-oxidation, estrogenic, hematopoietic and immunogenic have been reported; however, the role of DBT in energy metabolism in cellular level has not been determined. Here, we employed an extracellular flux analyzer to evaluate the mitochondrial respir...

Bengal slow lorises (Nycticebus bengalensis) are threatened by illegal trade. Subsequently, numerous wild-born individuals are rescued and transferred to rescue centers. Metabonomic analysis of intestinal microbiomes has increasingly played a vital role in evaluating the effects of dietary alteration on the captive status of endangered non-human primates. A synthetic analysis was done to test the differences in gut microbes and fecal metabolites between two dietary groups of Bengal slow lorises ...
