Polysaccharides from Bletilla striata: Extraction, Optimization and Their Antioxidant Activities in vitro
Xiaojing Shena , Weiwei Jiang
Medicine Research    2020, 4 (3): 200010-.   DOI: 10.21127/yaoyimr20200010
Abstract205)      PDF (824KB)(378)       Save
In this paper, the extraction conditions of water-soluble polysaccharide from Bletilla striata were optimized by response surface methodology. With the dried Bletilla striata as raw materials, phenol-sulfuric acid method as the method of polysaccharide extraction rate, polysaccharide extraction rate as an indicator, the optimum process conditions for polysaccharide extraction from Bletilla striata were obtained including liquid-solid ratio of 15 mg/mL, extraction temperature 90 °C, extraction time of 90 h, sample immersion time 90 min, and extraction 2 times, achieving the corresponding polysaccharide yield of 48.38%. The antioxidant assays in vitro revealed that the polysaccharides from Bletilla striata exhibited a slight scavenging activity for 1,1-diphenyl-2- picrylhydrazyl radicals and 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) radical cations.

Fifteen compounds, including 11 flavonoids, 2 phenylethanoids and 2 phenylpropanoids, were isolated from the roots of Rhodiola rosea L. Among them, quercetin ( 1) and quercetin-3- O-β-D-glucoside ( 2) were afforded from the genus Rhodiola for the first time. All isolates were evaluated for their agitating activities on receptor 5-HT 2A and four compounds ( 1215) showed obvious agitating activities, which were probably the main lipid-lowering active components of R. rosea L.

Advances in the synthesis of low bandgap (E g < 1.5 eV) conjugated polymers has produced organic materials capable of absorbing near-infrared (NIR) light (800—2500 nm), with these materials first applied to photodiode NIR detectors in 2007 as an alternative to more traditional inorganic devices. Although the development of organic NIR photodetectors has continued to advance, their ability to effectively detect wavelengths in the low-energy portion of the NIR spectrum is still limited. Efforts to date concerning the production of photo-diode-based devices capable of detecting light beyond 1000 nm are reviewed.

In our early screening process, songorine isolated from Aconitum brachypodum diels possessed prominent activity of inhibiting class B G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). For further study, a series of ester and carbonyl derivatives were synthesized and their potential inhibitory activities on class B GPCRs were also assayed by the Double Antibody Sandwich ELISA (DAS-ELISA) in vitro. Moreover, the structure-activity relationships (SARs) of songorine derivatives were discussed in detail. In this paper, the story behind this study was described.
