What is Madecassoside?

Madecassoside (madecassoside, MC) is the main active component of triterpenoid saponins in Centella asiatica Urb. of Umbelliferae. Studies have shown that Madecassic acid has a wide range of in vitro and in vivo pharmacological activities, which can reduce collagen-induced arthritis inflammation and promote in vitro Proliferation of cultured human fibroblasts, treatment or prevention of hypertrophic scars and keloids, and protection of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury. In addition, Madecassoside has antidepressant effect, and the mechanism may be related to reducing the activity of brain monoamine oxidase. At the same time, Madecassoside also has protective effect on neurons in rats with acute spinal cord injury and dementia in mice caused by chronic aluminum poisoning.

Effects of Madecassoside

The wound area of the mice in the high-dose group of Madecassoside was significantly reduced, and the content of hydroxyproline in the skin tissue was significantly increased; H2O2 (500 μmol/L) caused a decrease in the activity of HUVEC, an increase in the leakage of LDH, and an increase in the content of intracellular MDA. , GSH content decreased, TUNEL test found that the apoptosis rate of H2O2 treatment group increased significantly. Madecassic acid (5, 10, 20μmol/L) can concentration-dependently inhibit lipid peroxidation and up-regulate cell viability; significantly improve H2O2-induced endothelial cell apoptosis and reduce intracellular Caspase-3 activity. Conclusion: Madecassoside has a significant promoting effect on burn healing, and is one of the main active components of Centella asiatica in the treatment of burns and scalds. Its mechanism of action is related to inhibiting lipid peroxidation, promoting collagen synthesis and inhibiting apoptosis.

Madecassoside can inhibit Aβ-induced apoptosis of hippocampal neurons; can inhibit myeloperoxidase (MPO) and reduce the production of malondi-aldehyde (MDA), thereby inhibiting inflammation and reducing oxygen free radical damage . LPS can significantly induce the proliferation and release of inflammatory factors of microglia in vitro. Compared with the LPS group, madecassoside significantly inhibited LPS-induced microglia proliferation in a dose-dependent manner. The IC50 of madecassoside treated microglia for 48h was 10.97nmol/L. At the same time, Madecassoside significantly decreased the release of TNF-α and IL-6 in microglia (P<0.05); Madecassic acid increased the rate of cell apoptosis in G2 phase of microglia and decreased TLR4 in microglia. and NF-κB expression.

COX-2 plays an important role in the process of inflammation, and its expression can be induced by endotoxin, mitogen, cytokine and so on. In acute liver injury caused by CCl4, the inflammatory response is activated, and various inflammatory factors including COX-2 are produced in large quantities, resulting in further necrosis of liver cells and aggravating the degree of liver injury. And it has been reported that COX-2 selective inhibitor can significantly reduce CCl4-induced liver injury Madecassoside can significantly inhibit the expression of COX-2 in liver tissue. This is one of the main mechanisms of liver protection.

The absorption of Madecassoside in the small intestine of rats is stronger than that of the large intestine, and its absorption rate is ileum>jejunum>duodenum>colon. However, there was no significant difference in the ileal absorption rate and absorption rate constant of Madecassoside solution with different concentrations. Among the three different surfactants, polysorbate-80 had a significant promoting effect on the ileal absorption of Madecassoside. The intestinal absorption of Madecassoside is mainly concentrated in the middle of the small intestine, and the absorption mechanism is speculated to be passive diffusion. The surfactant polysorbate-80 can promote its ileal absorption.

Extraction of Madecassoside

1. Crush Centella asiatica, extract with 60-70v% ethanol option, filter the remove, recuperate the solvent from the filtrate, include 40-50C water to dissolve, filter, as well as liquify the filter residue in 50-60v% ethanol option to get Crude remove.

2. Place the crude extract on XAD-9 manhole material column, elute with acid remedy with pH value of 2-4, and combine the flow remedy and also acid clean remedy.

3. Change the pH worth of the combined remedy to nonpartisanship, filter, and also make use of the filtrate once again to EXAD-3 macroporous resin column, elute with ethanol with a volume focus of 30-40%, follow up discovery by thin-layer chromatography, as well as collect the parts having asiatic acid. ethanol eluent; re-blade volume concentration, 55-65% ethanol elution, thin layer, chromatographic tracking discovery, accumulate the ethanol eluent having Madecassic acid, recoup the Madecassoside eluent to ethanol, dry, to get Madecassoside.

Symphonious 1, ethanol with a quantity focus of 60-70% can totally liquify diterpenoids in Centella asiatica, consisting of triterpenoids and triterpenoids. Due to the fact that the particles of Centella asiatica are commonly combined with many sugar molecules, there are numerous hydroxyl groups for a few days, which can reveal a specific level of hydrophilicity, yet the foot hydrophilicity is not solid, as well as it is somewhat soluble in water, while diterpene acids are polar Tiny and also insoluble in water. Consequently, using 40-50 ℃ warm water can assist the dissolution of Centella asiatica total saponins, as well as the asiaticotritan acids are insoluble in hot water. Filter the filtrate, and also take the filter deposit as well as dissolve it in ethanol, so regarding achieve the everyday efficiency of removing Centella asiatica total saponins.

XAD-9 resin generally adsorbs fat-soluble elements and also substances with solid macromolecular polarity. These compounds have more powerful adsorption to resins. Macroporous resins preferentially adsorb these substances as well as promptly get to saturation. XAD-9 is a polar macroporous material, which is rather different in polarity from triterpene acids and also can not efficiently adsorb triterpenoids. The typical pore dimension of XAD-9 resin is larger than that of triterpenoids as well as can not be It plays the duty of physically keeping triterpene acids, so the triterpenoids will certainly flow out with the effluent. The acid option with pH value of 2-4 can even more elute a percentage of triterpenoid acids adsorbed in the material, as well as prevent the adsorption loss of triterpenoid acids.

In step 2, the column rate of the unrefined extract is 3-5BV/ h. The elution price of the acid option is 1-2 BV/h.

In step 3, the XAD-3 macroporous resin is a non-polar material with a typical pore dimension of 0.44 and a specific surface area of 256m2/g. The resin has very good adsorption efficiency for triterpenoid acids, and also the filling speed of the filtrate is 0.5-1BV/ h, which can entirely adsorb the diterpenoids. Due to the distinction in polarity between asiatic acid and Madecassoside, 30-40% ethanol by quantity was used to elute asiatic acid preferentially. Then it is eluted with 55-65% ethanol by quantity, and also the continuing to be Madecassoside can be eluted.

Compared to the prior art, the approach performs adsorption and also desorption for the target component, the return of the extracted Madecassoside is as high as 90% or more, as well as the purity is as high as 95.0% or more.

Separation and Determination of Madecassoside

When the mobile phase is methanol-water (volume ratio of 65:35) and pH is 4, the separation degree of isomers increases with the increase of the concentration of β-cyclodextrin; Within the range of 5.0g/L, the peak area and concentration showed a linear relationship (r2=0.9989), indicating that the method is suitable for the content detection of Madecassoside and the quality control of related drugs. Madecassoside and its isomer termi-nolicacid were separated by adding β-cyclodextrin to methanol-water mobile phase, and the content of Madecassoside in 50% of total aglycones of Centella asiatica was determined. The specificity of this method is good, and the concentration of Madecassoside has a good linear relationship with the peak area when the concentration of Madecassoside is 0.1-5.0g/L. It can be used for the content detection of Madecassoside and the quality control of related drugs. Chromatographic conditions: Column: AgilentZorbaxSB-C18 column (150mm×4.6mm, 5μm); Guard column: ShimadzuShim-packODS; Mobile phase: methanol-water (volume ratio of 65:35) mixed solution (containing 4mmol/Lβ-CD), The pH value was adjusted to 4 with acetic acid; the flow rate was 0.4 mL/min; the detection wavelength was 204 nm; the column temperature was 25 °C; the injection volume was 10 μL.
