    ABSTRACT: Abstract 1. Aconitine (AC), an active and highly toxic constituent extracted from aconitum plants, is well known for its excellent effects against rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis. The metabolism of AC in liver and intestine has been previously reported. However, little is known about the metabolism of AC in stomach. In this study, the metabolite profiling of AC in stomachs of rabbit and rat was performed by liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization/multiple-stage tandem mass spectrometry (LC/ESI/MS(n)), for the first time. 2. The samples were purified by liquid-liquid extraction, separated using an Agilent extended C18 column following a linear gradient elution and then detected by ESI/MS(n) in positive ion mode. Metabolites were identified by comparing their protonated molecules, fragmentation patterns and chromatographic behaviors with those of standard compounds and data from authorized literature works. 3. In conclusion, 14 metabolites were identified in animal stomach after oral administration of AC. The presentation of a large amount of metabolites of AC in stomach suggested that, for aconitum alkaloids, the stomach might play an important role in their metabolism.

    ABSTRACT: The liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) methods were used to identify the pharmacologically active n-butanol extract from Compound Indigowoad Root Granule. As a result, eighteen compounds belonging to various structural classes such as nucleosides, purines, flavonoids and amino acid were unambiguously identified. Then an in vitro neuraminidase (NA) inhibition assay was carried out to examine the inhibitory activity of the standard samples and extracts on NA. After which, ultrafiltration liquid chromatography with photodiode array detection coupled to electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ultrafiltration LC-MS/MS) was used to study NA inhibitory activity of standard flavones and n-butanol extract of Compound Indigowoad Root Granule. This method is highly selective and sensitive, and it could be used for characterization of bioactive compounds and botanical extracts. The result provides some enlightenment for the explanation of the antiviral activity of Compound Indigowoad Root Granule and some guidance for natural anti-influenza medicine development.
