Characteristics of tetrahydroprotoberberines on dopamine D1 and D2 receptors in calf striatum. (1/114)

AIM: To study the characteristics of tetrahydroprotoberberines (THPB) on dopamine D1 and D2 receptors and elucidate their structure-activity relationship. METHODS: Radioligand assay in vitro with a two-site model program analysis. RESULTS: Four THPB with two hydorxyl groups on C2 and C9 or C2 and C10 exhibited RH and RL two binding sites to D1 receptors and guanosine triphosphate regulated the RH binding site of SPD and THPB-132A in competition assay, while eleven THPB including nonhydroxy-THPB, monohydroxy-THPB, and THPB with two hydroxyl groups attaching to C3 and C10 showed one binding site to D1 receptors under the same conditions. However, the tested eleven THPB all manifested one binding site to D2 receptors in competition assay, and the 2-hydroxy-THPB had the most potent affinity for D2 receptors. CONCLUSION: Dihydroxy-THPB with two hydroxyl groups attaching to C2 and C9 or C2 and C10 possess the intrinsic activity of agonist to D1 receptors, while the other THPB do not. The tested eleven THPB all are the antagonists of D2 receptors.  (+info)

Effects of tetrahydroprotoberberines on dopamine D2 receptors in ventral tegmental area of rat. (2/114)

AIM: To compare the actions of tetrahydroprotoberberines (THPB) on dopamine (DA) D2 receptors in the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of rat. METHODS: Extracellular single unit recording technique was used in i.v. gallamine-paralyzed rats. RESULTS: Eleven THPB analogs tested completely attenuated the apomorphine (Apo, 20 micrograms.kg-1)-induced inhibition on VTA DA cell firing activity. The OH group on C2 at THPB was linked with the reversal of Apo-induced inhibition. Their reversal potencies (ED50, microgram.kg-1) for D2 receptors were: THPB-143 (5.6) > SPD (8.5) > Iso (17.0) > THP (33) > THB (48) > THPB-18 (66) > THPB-1 (179) > THPB-19 (408) > THPB-126 (510) > THPB-104 (1019) > THPB-10 (4815). CONCLUSION: Among these 11 THPB, the 2-hydroxyl-THPB (THPB-143) showed the strongest antagonistic action on D2 receptors.  (+info)

Relationship between electroacupuncture analgesia and dopamine receptors in nucleus accumbens. (3/114)

AIM: To study the roles of dopamine (DA) D1 and D2 receptors in nucleus accumbens in electroacupuncture analgesia (EAA) and the potentiation of EAA of rats induced by l-tetrahydropalmatine (l-THP), a dopamine receptor antagonist. METHODS: SK&F-38393 and quinpirole hydrochloride (Qui), highly selective agonists of D1 and D2 receptors, respectively were injected into nucleus accumbens of rats. RESULTS: SK&F-38393 (5 and 10 micrograms) attenuated the potentiation of EAA induced by l-THP, 10 micrograms SKF38393 attenuated EAA as well, while Qui (10 and 20 micrograms) had no effect on EAA and the potentiation of EAA induced by l-THP. CONCLUSION: D1 but not D2 receptor in nucleus accumbens play an important role in EAA and the potentiation of EAA induced by l-THP.  (+info)

Differential inhibitory effects of protoberberines on sterol and chitin biosyntheses in Candida albicans. (4/114)

The anti-Candida potentials of 12 Korean medicinal plants were explored: methanol extracts from Coptis rhizoma and Phellodendron amurense caused significant inhibition of growth of Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei and Candida parapsilosis. The predominant active components of the extracts were the protoberberines berberine and palmatine; the most potent inhibition of growth was exhibited by berberine on C. krusei (MIC <4 mg/L) and palmatine on C. parapsilosis (MIC 16 mg/L). Both berberine and palmatine inhibited the in-vivo rate of incorporation of L-[methyl-14C]methionine into C-24 of ergosterol in C. albicans (50% inhibition concentration (IC50 values), 25 microM and 300 microM, respectively); this result suggests that sterol 24-methyl transferase (24-SMT) is one of the cellular targets for the antifungal activity of the protoberberines. In-vitro 24-SMT activity in microsomes from the yeast growth form of C. albicans was inhibited by both berberine (inhibition constant (Ki) 232 microM) and palmatine (Ki 257 microM) in a non-competitive manner; inhibition of 24-SMT was more marked for the mycelial form than for the yeast growth form of this organism. Palmatine inhibited chitin synthase from both the yeast and mycelial growth phases of C. albicans in a non-competitive manner (Ki 780 microM). The effects of protoberberines, extracted from established medicinal plants, on both sterol and cell wall biosyntheses in pathogenic fungi indicate that the potential of these compounds, or their semi-synthetic derivatives, as a novel class of antifungal agents should be investigated more fully.  (+info)

Effect of tetrahydropalmatine analogs on Fos expression induced by formalin-pain. (5/114)

AIM: To study the effect of tetrahydropalmatine (THP) analogs on Fos protein expression induced by formalin-pain and elucidate analgesic mechanism of THP analogs. METHODS: The pain response to Sprague Dawley rats was induced with formalin injected s.c. into the plantar surface of the right hindpaw. Fos protein expression in brain and spinal cord was investigated with immunohistochemistry. The numbers of Fos-like immunoreactive (FLI) neurons were counted with Leica Q570 image analyzer. RESULTS: In the groups of THP analogs and D2 antagonist spiperone, FLI neurons induced by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of THP analogs and spiperone were mainly located in the striatum and accumbens nucleus, and a few FLI neurons were also in sensorimotor cortex. In the D1 antagonist, D1 agonist, D2 agonist, saline and vehicle groups, FLI neurons were seldom seen in the striatum and accumbens nucleus. Moreover, the Fos protein expression induced by l-THP and spiperone could be prevented by the pre-treatment of the D2 agonist quinpirole but not D1 agonist SKF38393. In the formalin-pain group, FLI neurons were mainly distributed in ascending pain afferent system (APAS) and descending pain modulation system (DPMS). Following i.p. THP analogs, however, the numbers of FLI neurons induced by formalin-pain in the APAS, such as dorsal horn (mainly laminae I, II, IV-VI) were markedly decreased, while the numbers of FLI neurons in the DPMS, such as periaqueductal gray (PAG) and reticular paragigantocellular lateral nucleus (RPLN) were significantly increased. CONCLUSION: THP analogs enhanced the activity of brainstem DPMS by the blockade of D2 receptors in the striatum and accumbens nucleus, and sequentially inhibited the inputs of peripheral pain afferent message in spinal cord level.  (+info)

Effect of protopine on cytosolic Ca2+ in rabbit platelets. (6/114)

AIM: To study the influence of protopine (Pro) on the cytoplasmic free Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in rabbit platelets. METHODS: Measurement of [Ca2+]i of platelets in vitro by Fura 2-AM fluorescence technique. RESULTS: In the presence of CaCl2 1 mmol.L-1, Pro 10, 20, and 40 mumol.L-1 attenuated the rise in [Ca2+]i evoked by ADP from (420 +/- 57) to (320 +/- 26), (264 +/- 21), and (180 +/- 14) nmol.L-1, respectively, by arachidonic acid (AA) from (280 +/- 36) to (210 +/- 17), (184 +/- 21), and (143 +/- 16) nmol.L-1, respectively, and by platelet-activating factor (PAF) from (350 +/- 42) to (282 +/- 31), (223 +/- 30), and (165 +/- 15) nmol.L-1, respectively. In the presence of egtazic acid 1 mmol.L-1, Pro 10, 20, and 40 mumol.L-1 reduced the Ca2+ release induced by ADP, AA, and PAF, respectively. Pro 10, 20, and 40 mumol.L-1 also decreased ADP-, AA-, and PAF-induced Ca2+ influx. CONCLUSION: Pro inhibited not only Ca2+ release but also the influx of Ca2+.  (+info)

Supraspinal D2 receptor involved in antinociception induced by l-tetrahydropalmatine. (7/114)

AIM: To study the role of dopamine (DA) receptors in l-tetrahydropalmatine (l-THP)-induced antinociception. METHODS: The intraperitoneal (i.p.) and intrathecal (ith) injections were used to give the drugs. The tail-flick test was used to assess the nociceptive threshold of rats. RESULTS: By i.p. injection, l-THP (10, 20, 40 mg.kg-1) as well as D2 receptor antagonist spiperone (1, 2, 3 mg.kg-1) produced dose-dependent antinociceptive effects on the nociception of rats, while D2 receptor agonist quinpirole, D1 receptor agonist SKF38393, and D1 receptor antagonist Sch-23390 showed no antinociception. Moreover, l-THP- or spiperone-induced antinociception was markedly attenuated by quinpirole (2, 3 mg.kg-1) but not SKF38393 or naloxone. On the other hand, ith quinpirole (20, 30, 40 micrograms.kg-1) also induced a dose-dependent antinociception, while ith l-THP, spiperone, SKF38393, and Sch-23390 did not exhibit any antinociception. Furthermore, ith spiperone (20, 30, 40 micrograms.kg-1) but not Sch-23390 dose-dependently antagonised the antinociception induced by quinpirole. l-THP (ith, 100, 200, 300 micrograms.kg-1) also dramatically attenuated the quinpirole-induced antinociception with a dose-dependent relationship. CONCLUSION: Activating the spinal D2 receptor or blocking the supraspinal D2 receptor produces antinociception. D1 receptor might be not directly involved in the antinociception. l-THP (as a D2 antagonist) as well as spiperone produces antinociception via blocking the supraspinal D2 receptor.  (+info)

Electrophysiological effects of protopine in cardiac myocytes: inhibition of multiple cation channel currents. (8/114)

Protopine (Pro) from Corydalis tubers has been shown to have multiple actions on cardiovascular system, including anti-arrhythmic, anti-hypertensive and negative inotropic effects. Although it was thought that Pro exerts its actions through blocking Ca(2+) currents, the electrophysiological profile of Pro is unclear. The aim of this study is to elucidate the ionic mechanisms of Pro effects in the heart. In single isolated ventricular myocytes from guinea-pig, extracellular application of Pro markedly and reversibly abbreviates action potential duration, and decreases the rate of upstroke (dV/dt)(max), amplitude and overshoot of action potential in a dose-dependent manner. Additionally, it produces a slight, but significant hyperpolarization of the resting membrane potential. Pro at 25, 50 and 100 microM reduces L-type Ca(2+) current (I(Ca,L)) amplitude to 89.1, 61.9 and 45.8% of control, respectively, and significantly slows the decay kinetics of I(Ca,L) at higher concentration. The steady state inactivation of I(Ca,L) is shifted negatively by 5.9 - 7.0 mV (at 50 - 100 microM Pro), whereas the voltage-dependent activation of I(Ca,L) remains unchanged. In contrast, Pro at 100 microM has no evident effects on T-type Ca(2+) current (I(Ca,T)). In the presence of Pro, both the inward rectifier (I(K1)) and delayed rectifier (I(K)) potassium currents are variably inhibited, depending on Pro concentrations. Sodium current (I(Na)), recorded in low [Na(+)](o) (40 mM) solution, is more potently suppressed by Pro. At 25 microM, Pro significantly attenuated I(Na) at most of the test voltages (-60 approximately +40 mV, with a 53% reduction at -30 mV. Thus, Pro is not a selective Ca(2+) channel antagonist. Rather, it acts as a promiscuous inhibitor of cation channel currents including I(Ca,L), I(K), I(K1) as well as I(Na). These findings may provide some mechanistic explanations for the therapeutic actions of Pro in the heart.  (+info)

Todays post from sciencedaily.com (see link below) comes once again from the world of nature and shows again how much undiscovered knowledge there is yet to be found regarding plants and animals and their pain-killing properties. Weve had, scorpions, spiders and snakes plus various fish, whose toxins have all been found to be powerful painkillers via their influence on the brain and now we have Corydalis yanhusuo, which is a species of genus Corydalis and a pretty common or garden herbal plant. However, research has indicated that the alkaloid dehydrocorybulbine, extracted from the roots of the plant, can be helpful in reducing neuropathic pain. Another plus is that there seem to be no side effects at all and if its being compared to morphine, thats a pretty big plus! Slightly worrying is the fact that this is not news. The plant has been highlighted before as a possible nerve pain relief (also on this blog) but there seems to be little progress on producing it commercially. Hopefully, this ...
Goldenseal has been used for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments including gastrointestinal disturbances, urinary tract disorders, and inflammation. The five major alkaloid constituents in goldenseal are Berberine, palmatine, hydrastine, hydrastinine, and canadine. When goldenseal was evaluated by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) in the standard 2-year bioassay, goldenseal induced an increase in liver tumors in rats and mice; however, the mechanism of goldenseal-associated liver carcinogenicity remains unknown. In this study, the toxicity of the five goldenseal alkaloid constituents was characterized, and their toxic potencies were compared. As measured by the Comet assay and the expression of γ-H2A.X, Berberine, followed by palmatine, appeared to be the most potent DNA damage inducer in human hepatoma HepG2 cells. Berberine and Palmatine suppressed the activities of both topoisomerase (Topo) I and II. In Berberine-treated cells, DNA damage was shown to be directly associated with ...

Formalin-induced pain models were used in rats to evaluate the antinociceptive effect of the total alkaloids of Corydalis yanhusuo (TAC). The results indicated that formalin-evoked spontaneous nociceptive responses (licking behavior) could be inhibited significantly by giving (intragingival) TAC at a single dose of 150 mg/kg. Subsequently, an online comprehensive two-dimensional biochromatography method with a silica-bonded human serum albumin (HSA) column in the first dimension and a monolithic ODS column in the second was developed. The absorbed bioactive components were screened by comparing and contrasting the components detected in the plasma and striatum with those in TAC. More than 100 compounds were separated and detected in the TAC, among which 13 compounds were identified. About 40 compounds (seven compounds identified) were absorbed into the plasma with appropriate concentrations and about 20 compounds (four compounds identified) passed through the blood-brain barrier into the ...
The induction of apoptosis by Ukrain was studied in Chinese hamster ovary cells. Ukrain was found to be capable of the in vitro induction of apoptosis in the cell lines studied. The effect was less expressed in cells with multiple drug resistance. Ukrain enhanced the effects of etoposide, i.e., the combined effect of both agents was evident at significantly reduced concentrations. This suggests that pharmacological compositions of the drugs may reduce the effective doses used in chemotherapy and thus significantly diminish its toxic side effects.. Exposure of a prostate cancer cells culture to Ukrain resulted in cell growth inhibition which is concomitant with apoptosis. After 24 h treatment with 3.5 microM of Ukrain as many as 73% cells were found in a state of beginning apoptosis. The rate of apoptotic cells rose steadily with increased drug concentration in a dose-dependent manner and reached 20% at a dosage of 17.5 microM.. A method for determination of Ukrain in blood plasma ...
2Ukranian Anticancer Institute, Laimgrubengasse 19/7. A-1060 Vienna, Austria. Abstract - Ukrain is a semisynthetic compound consisting of alkaloids from Chelidonium majus L. conjugated to thiophosphoric acid. with immunomodulatory and therapeutic properties in cancer patients. The present m vitro studies demonstrate that Ukrain is an effective biological response modifier in that it augmented, by up to 48-fold. the lytic activity of spleen lymphocytes obtained from alloimmunized mice. The lytic activities of IL-2-treated spleen cells and peritoneal exudate lymphocytes were also increased significantly by the addition of Ukrain to the CML assay medium. The highest Ukrain-induced enhancement of spleen lymphocyte lytic activity in vitro was found to occur at 18 days after alloimmunization, was dose dependent and specific for the immunizing P815 tumor cells. Since Ukrain was present only during the CML assays, its mode of action is thought to be via direct activation of the effector cells lytic ...
New address: I.V. Voltchek. M.D., Ph.D., Russian Medical Co. 1 Gagarina Pr., 196105 St. Petersburg, Russia. Tel. +7.812.5425706. Fax: +7.812.5425706.. This paper was presented at the 9th Mediterranean Congress of Chemotherapy, Milan, Italy, June 1994.. Summary. We evaluated the cytostatic effect of the antihypoxic drug Oliphen (Polyoxiarilene) in comparison with the well known cytostatic and immunomodulating agent Ukrain (a semisynthetic compound derived from Chelidonium majus L. alkaloids). We used tumor cell lines M-HeLa and Hep-2/0-6-5, normal cell cultures from human embryo kidney and lung fibroblasts. The cytodestructive effect of Ukrain on both tumor cell lines was more significant at all tested concentrations. Oliphen was cytotoxic only against Hep-2 but not the HeLa cell line. The proliferative activity of both normal cell cultures decreased in the presence of Oliphen and Ukrain concentrations of 0.1 and 0.015% and was stable at 0.0015 and 0.00015%.. Key words: Ukrain, Oliphen, ...
Leishmaniasis is one of the Worlds most problematic diseases in developing countries. Traditional medicines to treat leishmaniasis have serious side effects, as well as significant parasite resistance problems. In this work, two alkaloids 1 and 2 were obtained from Corydalis govaniana Wall and seven alkaloids 3-9, were obtained from Erythrina verna. The structures of the compounds were confirmed by mass spectrometry and 1D- and 2D-NMR spectroscopy. The leishmanicidal activity of compounds 1-9 against Leishmania amazonensis was tested on promastigote forms and cytotoxicity against J774 (macrophage cell line) was assessed in vitro. Compound 1 showed potent activity (IC50 = 0.18 µg/mL), compared with the standard amphotericin B (IC50 = 0.20 µg/mL). The spirocyclic erythrina-alkaloids showed lower leishmanicidal activity than dibenzoquinolizine type alkaloids.
After the effect of Ukrain on cell cultures in the laboratory had been observed and at the same time it was established that its use poses no risk to health, many doctors began to use the preparation in the treatment of malignant melanoma. With one female patient with metastasising malignant melanoma, with melanin already present in her urine and whose chances of survival were only a few months, nine months of therapy with Ukrain achieved such a completely unusual result that on 12.6.1984 Univ. Prof. Dr. Peter Wodniansky, a dermatologist, felt obliged to request the Ministry of Science and Research to carry out a clinical trial on the preparation. Prof. Wodniansky examined the patient several times during the course of nine months Ukrain therapy and was surprised that the patient gave the impression of being healthy and cured (Enclosure Wodniansky). Until today with this diagnosis the disease is almost without exception fatal and constantly shows itself to be resistant to therapy. Worldwide ...
This study began from DA-9701, an herb-based gastroprokinetic agent formulated with Pharbitis semen and Corydalis tuber (Lee et al., 2008). A phase III clinical trial of DA-9701 for FD has been completed recently, and we are anticipating DA-9701 as a novel natural medicine for treatment of FD in South Korea. In this study, we provided several pieces of evidence to show that THB, an isoquinoline alkaloid isolated from Corydalis tuber, is one of the active component(s) responsible for gastroprokinetic and fundic relaxing activity. THB has been known as an antidopaminergic agent; however, for the first time, we recognized THB as an agonist for the 5-HT1A receptor and explored the possibility of its possible use for the treatment of FD. We demonstrated that THB stimulates gastric emptying and gastrointestinal contractility as well as enhances gastric accommodation in conscious animals, which might be mediated by dopamine D2 and/or serotonin 5-HT1A receptors. These findings suggested that THB may ...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of chelidonine on mitotic slippage and apoptotic-like death in SGC-7901 human gastric cancer cells. The MTT assay was performed to detect the antiproliferative effect of chelidonine. Following treatment with chelidonine (10 µmol/l), the ultrastructure changes in SGC-7901, MCF-7 and HepG2 cells were observed by transmission electron microscopy. The effects of chelidonine on G2/M phase arrest and apoptosis of SGC-7901 cells were determined by flow cytometry. Indirect immunofluorescence assay and laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM) were used to detect the phosphorylation level of histone H3 (Ser10) and microtubule formation was detected using LSCM following immunofluorescent labeling. Subsequent to treatment with chelidonine (10 µmol/l), expression levels of mitotic slippage-associated proteins, including BUB1 mitotic checkpoint serine/threonine kinase B (BubR1), cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (Cdk1) and cyclin B1, and ...
Scoulers corydalis is a tall perennial herb with thick rhizomes. Stems are hollow, simple or somewhat branched above and 40-120 cm tall. The blue-green, glaucous (white to blue waxy powder) leaves are usually three in number, from near or above the middle of the stem. The lower one is often 20-30 cm long. The terminal inflorescence, appearing in May and June, is usually a compound raceme (an elongated inflorescence with youngest flowers at the tip) of 15-20, spurred, rosy-pink flowers.

Berberine is a bioactive isoquinoline alkaloid derived from many plants. Although berberine has been shown to inhibit growth and induce apoptosis of several tumor cell lines, its poor absorption and moderate activity hamper its full therapeutic potential. Here, we describe the synthesis of a series of 9-O-substituted berberine derivatives with improved antiproliferative and apoptosis-inducing activities. An analysis of novel berberine derivatives by EPR spectroscopy confirmed their similar photosensitivity and analogous behavior upon UVA irradiation as berberine, supporting their potential to generate ROS. Improved antitumor activity of novel berberine derivatives was revealed by MTT assay, by flow cytometry and by detection of apoptotic DNA fragmentation and caspase-3 activation, respectively. We showed that novel berberine derivatives are potent inhibitors of growth of HeLa and HL-60 tumor cell lines with IC50 values ranging from 0.7 to 16.7 µM for HL-60 cells and 36 to >200 µM for HeLa ...

Berberine and the methylenedioxy ring-opening derivatives palmatine and jatrorrhizine are active ingredients in immunomodulatory plants, such as goldenseal. This study aimed to illustrate the effects of protoberberines on aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) activation and cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1 in the estrogen receptor (ER)α(+) MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Among protoberberines at non-cytotoxic concentrations (≤10 μM), berberine had the most potent and statistically significant effects on AhR activation and CYP1A1/1A2/1B1 mRNA induction. The 24-h exposure to 10 μM berberine did not change CYP1A1 mRNA stability, protein level and function. Berberine significantly increased micro RNA (miR)-21-3p by 36% and the transfection of an inhibitor of miR-21-3p restored the induction of CYP1A1 protein with a 50% increase. These findings demonstrate that the ring opening of the methylenedioxyl moiety in berberine decreased AhR activation in MCF-7 cells. While CYP1A1 mRNA was elevated, berberine-induced miR-21-3p
The effects of chelidonine on tubulin polymerisation, cell cycle progression and selected signal transmission pathways.. Panzer A, Joubert AM, Bianchi PC, Hamel E, Seegers JC.. Department of Physiology, University of Pretoria, South Africa.. Chelidonine is a tertiary benzophenanthridine alkaloid known to cause mitotic arrest and to interact weakly with tubulin. Our interest in chelidonine began when we found it to be a major contaminant of Ukrain, which is a compound reported to be selectively toxic to malignant cells. The effects of chelidonine in two normal (monkey kidney and Hs27), two transformed (Vero and Graham 293) and two malignant (WHCO5 and HeLa) cell lines, were examined. Chelidonine proved to be a weak inhibitor of cell growth, but no evidence for selective cytotoxicity was found in this study. It was confirmed that chelidonine inhibits tubulin polymerisation (IC50 = 24 microM), explaining its ability to disrupt microtubular structure in cells. A G2/M arrest results, which is ...

Over 2,800 studies are available on PubMed about the alkaloid berberine, a constituent of many herbs traditionally used to fight fevers and infections. More than half of these studies have been put up on PubMed in the past five years. This research not only confirms the traditional value of berberine-containing plants for infections, it also shows it has many other potential benefits for human health. Berberine is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and immune-enhancing. It is effective against a wide range of bacteria, protozoa, and fungi. It may also have efficacy in the treatment of insulin resistance, diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. There is evidence it may be helpful in preventing heart disease by lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Berberine may even be helpful for hypertension (high blood pressure), brain health, immune dysfunction, low bone density, and weight control.. We discuss some of this research in this months Herbal Hour, but we also look at herbs that contain this ...
The effects of isoquinoline alkaloid berberine (BER) on spleen tissue CD4(+)CD25(+)Foxp3(+) regulatory T (Treg) cells were evaluated in BALB/c mice. Here, BER was administered daily by intraperitoneal injection at doses of 5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg for 14 days. Following the exposure, mice spleen cellularities, IL-10 production by splenocytes, and spleen Treg/CD4(+) cell profiles were studied in all the test groups of animals. The results showed that a high dose of BER (10 mg/kg) could decrease both the absolute and relative percentages of spleen Treg cells as well as decrease the production of IL-10 by splenocytes in the treated mice (p,0 ...

Best known for its natural antibiotic activity, berberine deals a serious blow to common infectious organisms- organisms like "staph," "strep," Chlamydia, diphtheria, salmonella, cholera, diplococcus pneumoniae, pseudomonas, gonorrhea, candida, trichomonas, and many others. Berberine is a component (for the technically inclined, a "plant alkaloid") of the commonly used herbs goldenseal and Oregon grape, and of several other less well-known botanicals. A 0.2 percent solution of berberine has been found effective against trachoma-in "third world" countries, a major infectious cause of visual impairment and blindness, as well as many other types of conjunctivitis.. Its less well known that berberine has been found more effective than aspirin in relieving fever in experimental animals, and is able to stimulate some parts of the immune system. Its also a stimulant for bile secretion.. And its not at all well known that research published in well-known, respected, "peer-reviewed" medical journals ...

Berberine is an isoquinoline alkaloid with a bright yellow color that is easily seen in most of the herb materials that contain any significant amount of this compound. Among Chinese herbs, the primary sources are phellodendron and coptis (similar isoquinoline alkaloids, in these herbs, such as jateorrhizine, coptisine, palmatine, and columbamine, also have a yellowish color). Berberine has long been used as a dye; it is currently known as

The chemical constituents and biological activities of Corydalis crispa (Fumariaceae) were investigated for the first time. The phytochemical study resulted in the isolation of nine known isoquinoline alkaloids: protopine (1), 13-oxoprotopine (2), 13-oxocryptopine (3), stylopine (4), coreximine (5), rheagenine (6), ochrobirine (7), sibiricine (8) and bicuculline (9), with complete NMR data for 2 and 3 provided here for the first time. Crude extracts exhibitedsignificant anti-inflammatory (p | 0.01) activity against TNF-alpha production in LPS activated THP-1 cells. The acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activity of compounds 2, 4 and 7 and the antiplasmodial activity of compound 5 against P. falciparum strains TM4/8.2 and K1CB1 (multidrug resistant strain) are reported here for the first time. Stylopine (4) did not show antimalarial activity against the K1CB1 strain in contrast to a previous report. This study generated a scientific basis for the use of this plant in Bhutanese traditional medicine, either

that has been used for centuries by healers in India. Berberine works slightly differently, by improving the signaling between insulin and its associated receptors while also increasing glucose uptake by skeletal muscle, not fat.(4-7) The alkaloid berberine is also found in the strong, therapeutic U.S. herbs goldenseal root, barberry root, and Oregon grape root.. 3.

The berberine stimulates the fat cells, liver cells and muscle cells to take up sugar through a process which doesnt rely on insulin. This seems to be alike as metformin. When insulin is present, then there is a dramatic increase in the activity of berberine.. Also, the berberine regulates how the mitochondrial functions and increases the insulin sensitivity. In addition, this compound decreases blood lipids, prevents fatty liver and reduces the blood sugar.. The compound also acts on α-glucosidase. This is an intestinal enzyme which breaks down carbs into simple sugars. This causes the intestines to absorb lesser amounts of carbs from your diet, and that induces low blood glucose levels after every meal.. Furthermore, berberine helps in fat reduction. It can lower the accumulation of abdominal fat and notably alter hip/waist ratio.. It seems to do this by lowering the activity of some genes which function to store and form more fats.. Another thing that berberine does is that it increases the ...

Berberine is known to improve glucose and lipid metabolism disorders, but it poorly absorbed into the blood stream from the gut. Therefore, the exact underlying mechanism for berberine is still unknown. In this study, we investigated the effect of berberine on glucose metabolism in diabetic rats and tested the hypothesis that berberine acts directly in the terminal ileums. Rats were divided into a control group, diabetic group (DM), low dose of berberine group (BerL) and high dose of berberine group (BerH). Ileum samples were analyzed using a Roche NimbleGen mRNA array, qPCR and immunohistochemistry. We found that 8 weeks of treatment with berberine significantly decreased fasting blood glucose levels. An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) showed that blood glucose was significantly reduced in the BerL and BerH groups before and at 30 min, 60 min and 120 min after oral glucose administration. Plasma postprandial glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) levels were increased in the berberine-treated groups. The
Berberine has been used as a therapeutic to treat a variety of human diseases in Korea, China, and possibly other Asian countries that practice the use of traditional medicines. Although its most common use is in the treatment of diarrhea and as an antitumor and antimicrobial agent (36-39), there are some reports of its potential use for the treatment of human diabetes (13,40,41). In one clinical study, 60 patients with type 2 diabetes were treated with berberine for 1-3 months, and 90% of patients showed improvement in their clinical symptoms (11). Very recently, Kong et al. (42) described the cholesterol-lowering properties of berberine. In the present study, we have extended these previous investigations and provide evidence that berberine reduces body weight and lipid levels and improves insulin action in two separate animal models of insulin resistance. Most importantly, we show that berberine acutely activates AMPK activity in both adipocytes and myocytes, and within these cell types ...

Benzylisoquinoline alkaloids (BIAs) are a large group of nitrogen-containing specialized metabolites. Opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) is an important pharmaceutical plant and has been cultivated for thousands of years for its analgesic constituents: the morphinan BIAs codeine and morphine. In addition, opium poppy produces other BIAs with biological activities, such as the vasodilator papaverine, the potential anti-cancer drug noscapine and the antimicrobial agent sanguinarine. The objective of this work was to identify and characterize oxidative enzymes involved in BIA biosynthesis, with a specific focus on cytochromes P450 (P450s). The biosynthesis of sanguinarine from (S)-reticuline requires four P450s. Our first objective was to identify these unidentified P450s in opium poppy. Our approach was based on the coordinated induction of all sanguinarine biosynthetic enzyme transcripts and proteins in elicited opium poppy cell suspension cultures. Using data from a previous microarray study, we ...
Also known as orangeroot thanks to its distinctly colored rhizome root system, goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) is a perennial herb in the buttercup family. It is native to southeastern Canada and the eastern United States. Goldenseal has a purple stem, hairy leaves, and small, unassuming flowers with green-white stamens that turn into single raspberry-like fruit. The plant emerges from a thick, heavily knotted, yellow rhizome that has long been the source of goldenseals wellness applications.. Goldenseal has been used in everything from salves and tinctures to teas and tablets. Native Americans-in particular the Cherokee-traditionally used goldenseal as a bitter tonic to support immune and digestive wellness.** Traditional Chinese wellness practices use goldenseal for its natural supply of the alkaloid berberine.**. ...

Glaucium flavum (G. flavum) is a plant from the Papaveraceae family native to Algeria where it is used in local traditional medicine to treat warts. G. flavum root crude alkaloid extract inhibited breast cancer cell proliferation and induced G2/M phase cycle arrest and apoptosis without affecting normal cells, which is a highly awaited feature of potential anti-cancer agents. G. flavum significantly reduced growth and vascularization of human glioma tumors on chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) in vivo. The chromatographic profile of the dichloromethane extract of G. flavum root showed the presence of different constituents including the isoquinoline alkaloid protopine, as the major compound. We report for the first time that G. flavum extract may represent a new promising agent for cancer chemotherapy.
A Ba(2+)-sensitive K(+) current was studied in neurons of the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) using the whole cell patch-clamp technique in acutely prepared brain slices. This Ba(2+)-sensitive K(+) current was found in approximately 90% of the SCN neurons and was uniformly distributed across the SCN. Current-clamp studies revealed that Ba(2+) (500 microM) reversibly depolarized the membrane potential by 6.7 +/- 1.3 mV (n = 22) and concomitantly Ba(2+) induced an increase in the spontaneous firing rate of 0.8 +/- 0.2 Hz (n = 12). The Ba(2+)-evoked depolarizations did not depend on firing activity or spike dependent synaptic transmission. No significant day/night difference in the hyperpolarizing contribution to the resting membrane potential of the present Ba(2+)-sensitive current was observed. Voltage-clamp experiments showed that Ba(2+) (500 microM) reduced a fast-activating, voltage-dependent K(+) current. This current was activated at levels below firing threshold and exhibited outward ...

Inhibition of liver mitochondrial monoamine oxidase activity by alkaloids isolated from Chelidonium and Macleaya and by their derivative drugs]. [Article in Russian]. Iagodina OV, Nikolskaia EB, Faddeeva MD.. I. M. Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry RAS, St. Petersburg.. It has been shown that the major alkaloids from plants Chelidonium majus L. and Macleaya (Bocconia) cordata and microcarpa, namely, berberine, sanguinarine, chelidonine, and drugs "Ukrain" (thiophosphoric acid derivative of a sum of the alkaloids isolated from Ch. majus L.) and "Sanguirythrine" (a mixture of the alkaloids sanguinarine and chelerythrine, w/w 3:7, isolated from Macleaya), are irreversible inhibitors of oxidative deamination reaction of serotonin and tyramine as substrates, catalyzed by rat liver mitochondrial monoamine oxidase (MAO). At the same time these substances do not influence the oxidative deamination reaction of benzylamine as substrate (in concentration 1 mM or less). The ...
