The tea-like beverage Bertoni () is popular in China because it reduces blood glucose and has a sweet taste. In this work, a comprehensive quality assessment of led to the discovery of five phenylethanoid glycosides, namely steviophethanoside (), cuchiloside (), salidroside (), icariside D (), and tyrosol (). Of them, compound is a novel compound. Mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy were employed to confirm the absolute configuration. A hydrolytic step with 4 N TFA at 95 °C for 4 h was used to confirm the monosaccharides. In addition, Discovery Studio 4.0 was used to predict the ADME and toxicity activity of compound . The results suggested that compound was biocompatible and had poor toxicity, which was verified by rat INS-1 islet β cells through an MTT assay. Meanwhile, a significant stimulatory effect on INS-1 cells was observed, which indicated a hypoglycemic effect of compound . This is the first report that describes a natural, novel, and hypoglycemic phenylethanoid glycoside in .

Zhongguo Zhong Yao Za Zhi 2014 Apr;39(7):1173-8

This study is to establish the fingerprint for Phyllanthus emblica and their tannin parts from different habitats by HPLC for its quality control. The determination was carried out on a Diamonsil C18 (4.6 mm x 250 mm, 5 microm) column, with methanol-0.2% glacial acetic acid as mobile phase with gradient elution at a flow rate of 1 mL x min(-1). The temperature was maintained at 30 degrees C and the detected wavelength is 260 nm, Thirteen chromatographic peaks were extracted as the common peaks of the fingerprint of P. emblica, and eleven as the common peaks of P. emblica tannin parts, and five peaks were identified by comparing with referent samples. The fingerprints of 8 samples were compared and classified by similarity evaluation, cluster analysis and principal component analysis (PCA). The similarity degrees of eight P. emblica were between 0.763 and 0.993, while tannin parts were between 0.903 and 0.991. All the samples of P. emblica and their tannin parts were classified into 3 categories. The method was so highly reproducible, simple and reliable that it could provide basis for quality control and evaluation of P. emblica from different habitats.

Molecules 2013 Sep 30;18(10):12071-108. Epub 2013 Sep 30.

School of Chinese Pharmacy, Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, Beijing 100102, China.

The genus Gaultheria, comprised of approximately 134 species, is mostly used in ethnic drugs to cure rheumatism and relieve pain. Phytochemical investigations of the genus Gaultheria have revealed the presence of methyl salicylate derivatives, C₆-C₃ constituents, organic acids, terpenoids, steroids, and other compounds. Methyl salicylate glycoside is considered as a characteristic ingredient in this genus, whose anti-rheumatic effects may have a new mechanism of action. In this review, comprehensive information on the phytochemistry, volatile components and the pharmacology of the genus Gaultheria is provided to explore its potential and advance research.

In vivo metabolites and plasma exposure of TongMai Keli analyzed by UHPLC/DAD/qTOF-MS and LC/MS/MS.

J Ethnopharmacol 2013 Jan 29;145(2):509-16. Epub 2012 Nov 29.

State Key Laboratory of Natural and Biomimetic Drugs, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Peking University, Beijing 100191, China.

Ethnopharmacological Relevance: TongMai Keli (TM) is a widely used traditional Chinese medicine preparation for the treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. It is composed of Puerariae Lobatae Radix (roots of Pueraria lobata (Willd.) Ohwi), Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix (roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge.), and Chuanxiong Rhizoma (rhizomes of Ligusticum chuanxiong Hort.). The aim of this study is to identify the in vivo metabolites of TM, and to elucidate the pharmacokinetics of TM constituents and their metabolites.

Materials And Methods: For metabolites identification, TM was orally administered to rats (n=3), and the metabolites in plasma were identified by UHPLC/DAD/qTOF-MS analysis and β-glucuronidase hydrolysis. For pharmacokinetic study, rats (n=10) were treated with TM at a clinical dose, and the plasma was analyzed by LC/MS/MS.

Results: A total of 25 metabolites from TM were identified in rats plasma. Glucuronide and sulfate conjugations were the major metabolic reactions, and produced 14 metabolites. The analytical method for pharmacokinetic study was fully validated with good linearity (r>0.99), wide dynamic ranges (6-6000 ng/mL), and low variations (<14.3%). The plasma concentration-time curves of puerarin and nine metabolites were profiled.

Conclusion: Isoflavones from Puerariae Lobatae Radix were the major metabolites in rat plasma after oral administration of TM. Puerarin and other isoflavone glycosides could reach their first C(max) within 30 min, and were then rapidly eliminated, followed by their phase II metabolites.

Three new isoflavone glycosides, 3'-methoxydaidzein-7,4'-di-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (1), biochanin A-8-C-β-d-apiofuranosyl-(1 → 6)-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (2), daidzein-7-O-β-d-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (3), and a new natural isoflavone glycoside, daidzein-7-O-α-d-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-O-β-d-glucopyranoside (4) were isolated along with 18 known isoflavones from the EtOAc and n-BuOH fractions of the aqueous extraction of Tongmai granules. All the isoflavones were obtained and determined for the first time from Tongmai granules. The structures of these compounds were elucidated by spectral methods. It was confirmed that the compounds 1-4 were originally from Puerariae Lobatae Radix based on HPLC-DAD analysis of the crude drug extract. The isoflavones isolated were tested for their antioxidative activities by measuring the capacities of scavenging the 2,2'-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical.
