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)

A large number of analytes, including non-fluorescent ones, can be sensitively detected by fluorescence scanning densitometry using silica gel HPTLC plates impregnated with a solution of coralyne cation. This is carried out by the variation, increase or decrease, that the corresponding analyte induces on native coralyne emission at a given excitation wavelength. A similar phenomenon was previously described for berberine cation, and Reichardts dye probes. However, the sensitivity of coralyne in HPTLC detection of non-fluorescent, structurally different analytes (e.g., long-chain alkanes, alcohols, alkylbromides, neutral lipids) is superior to that of the above-mentioned probes. In this work, the analytical viability of this phenomenon for HPTLC detection using coralyne as a probe is explored, and fluorescent responses of a number of analytes on the coralyne system are rationalized in the light of a previously proposed model. This establishes that the resulting intensity for a probe in the ...
Schizophrenia is a serious psychiatric disorder that affects 1% of the population. Current theories implicate NMDA receptor hypofunction as a contributor to the symptomology and pathological alterations in schizophrenia. Cognitive impairments are increasingly recognized as not only fundamental to schizophrenia, but the strongest predictor of patient functional outcomes. Current antipsychotics do not improve the cognitive symptoms of the disorder; however, recent efforts have resulted in the identification of novel drug targets. One target is metabotropic glutamate receptors as they interact with and modulate NMDA receptors. Another approach focuses on dopamine, the neurotransmitter system targeted by traditional antipsychotics. Tetrahydroprotoberberines, such as D- and L-govadine, are synthetic compounds derived from traditional medicine that have demonstrated efficacy in treating schizophrenic symptoms. The present study assessed the effects of CDPPB (a metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 ...

Jagiello-Wójtowicz E, Kleinrok Z, Feldo M, Chodkowska A, Szklarczyk V, Urbanska EM.. Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Medical University School, Lublin, Poland.. The influence of 6-week treatment with Ukrain at doses of 0.3, 1.5 and 3.0 mg/kg i.v. on serum levels of thyroid hormones, i.e., thyroxine and triiodothyronine, was studied in rabbits of both sexes. Ukrain affected the serum levels of both hormones in males. An increase in the thyroxine level was found after Ukrain used at a dose of 1.5 and 3.0 mg/kg i.v., whereas increased triiodothyronine was noted when Ukrain was given at all studied doses. In females the thyroxine level was not altered by Ukrain administration, whereas the triiodothyronine concentration was increased following Ukrain at 0.3, 1.5 and 3.0 mg/kg i.v. it is probable the altered thyroid hormone levels as a result of Ukrain ...
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.

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.
A garden picture of Corydalis solida, Many thanks to Mr MB for his advice on growing this plant - I didnt even know which way up to plant the corms! Now its shooting up and even has a flower appearing.

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 ...

Scoulers corydalis is a herbaceous perennial and a member of the fumatory family, Fumariaceae, that also includes bleeding heart and Dutchmans breeches. It is native to western North America where it forms colonies in moist woodlands, and along shaded streambanks and shaded moist roadsides. Plants grow 20-50″ tall and have hallow stems usually bearing three large bluish leaves that are finely divided into oblong leaflets. In late spring, 15-35 pink, rose, or bicolored flowers appear in a long narrow spike. Each flower is about 1′ long and has long somewhat curved spurs that point upward and outward. A good choice for a woodland or shade garden. The genus name, Corydalis, is the Greek word for lark and refers to the resemblance of the plants spurs to the spurs of the lark. The specific epithet, scouleri, honors John Scouler, a 19th century Scotch professor at the Royal Dublin Society.. Type: Herbaceous perennial. Bloom: Pink, rose, or bicolored flowers 1″ long with spurs, in long narrow ...

PubMed ID: 23982892 Albring KF, Weidemüller J, Mittag S, Weiske J, Friedrich K, Geroni MC, Lombardi P, Huber O. Biofactors 2013. Aberrant activation of the canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway has been reported for numerous tumors of different origins. In most cases, mutations in components of the Wnt signaling pathway or in β-catenin itself were detected which ultimately induce a genetic program that promotes cell proliferation and attenuates apoptosis. Thus, targeting of Wnt/β-catenin signaling is of specific therapeutic interest. Herein, we investigated the plant-derived isoquinoline alkaloid berberine, which has been reported to have anticancer activity, and synthetic 13-arylalkyl derivatives thereof for their effects on Wnt/β-catenin signaling. Berberine did not show major effects on viability of HEK-293 embryonic kidney and HCT116 colon carcinoma cells and was not toxic in concentrations up to 20 µM. Berberine inhibited β-catenin transcriptional activity and attenuated ...
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 ...
