Summary of "In vitro study on metabolite profiles of bioactive xanthones isolated from Halenia elliptica D. Don by high performance liquid chromatography coupled to ion trap time-of-flight mass spectrometry."
The metabolisms of five xanthones isolated from a Tibetan medicinal herb Halenia elliptica D. Don, including 1-hydroxy-2,3,5-trimethoxy-xanthone (HM-1), 1-hydroxy-2,3,4,7-tetramethoxy-xanthone (HM-2), 1-hydroxy-2,3,4,5-tetramethoxy-xanthone (HM-3), 1,7-dihydroxy-2,3,4,5-tetramethoxy-xanthone (HM-4) and 1,5-dihydroxy-2,3-dimethoxy-xanthone (HM-5), were studied in rat liver microsomes in vitro. High performance liquid chromatography coupled to ion trap time-of-flight mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-IT-TOF) was applied for identification of metabolites of five xanthones mentioned above and (1)H NMR was used to elucidate the major metabolites. The structures of thirteen metabolites were identified and seven of them had not been reported before. Moreover, xanthone isomers herein could be distinguished by difference of fragmentation behaviors with increase of stages or relative abundances. The results indicated that in vitro metabolic transformation of HM-1, HM-2, HM-3, HM-4 and HM-5 occurred mainly at 2-, 4-, 5-, 7-carbonic positions on their structures of parent drugs. The metabolites could be new vasoactive substances. This work will provide a basis for study on the structure-activity relationships of these xanthones and their derivatives from Tibetan herbal in the next work.
