Voriconazole is a triazole broad-spectrum antifungal medication often used to treat fungal infections caused by Aspergillus and Fusarium species. One of the main challenges associated with the implementation of this medication is its narrow therapeutic concentration range, demonstrating toxicity at concentrations above 6μg/mL and limited efficacy at concentrations below 2μg/mL. As a result, methodologies which permit the rapid and accurate quantitation of voriconazole in patients are highly desirable. In this work two different approaches based on coated blade spray directly coupled to mass spectrometry (CBS-MS) are introduced; each enabling the quantitation of voriconazole in plasma samples with a simple and fast sample preparation and no chromatographic step...

Detection of higher-order aggregates (HOA) using size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) was found to be variable for a basic protein, using exposed-silanol or diol-silica-based SEC columns. Preparations of the tetrameric biopharmaceutical enzyme Erwinia chrysanthemil-asparaginase (ErA), which has an isoelectric point of 8.6, were analysed using a diol-silica SEC column. Although the proportions of ErA main peak and octamer species were unaffected, HOA recovery and detection were extremely variable and had poor agreement with an orthogonal measurement technique, analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC)...

A new HILIC-ELSD method was developed for compositional analysis of both xylo-oligosaccharides (XOS) with degree of polymerization (DP) from 2 to 8 and acetylated XOS with DP from 3 to 8. The method was carried out on a zwitterionic HILIC column using ELSD as a detector. The influences of mobile phase composition, column temperature and flow rate on the retention time and resolution of XOS were investigated. An excellent separation result was achieved with a linear gradient elution of 75%-50% acetonitrile in 30min, at a flow rate of 1mL/min and the column temperature at 35°C...

Ginseng herbs comprise a group of the most popular herbs, including Panax ginseng, P. notoginseng and P. quinquefolius (Family Araliaceae), which are used as traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and are some of the best-selling natural products in the world. The accurate quantification of ginsenoside Rg1 is one of the major aspects of its quality control. However, the purity of the commercial Rg1 chemical reference substance (CRS) is often measured with high-performance chromatography coupled with an ultraviolet detector (HPLC-UV), which is a selective detector with unequal responses to different compounds; thus, this detector introduces probable error to purity assessments...

The binding of irinotecan, a potent anti cancer drug, to bovine beta-lactoglobulin (β-LG) was investigated by various spectroscopic techniques including fluorimetry, circular dichroism (CD), UV-vis, and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), in 10mM phosphate buffer, pH 7.75, in combination with a molecular docking study. Analysis of the fluorescence quenching data showed that combined static and dynamic quenching occurs, with the predominant contribution of the static mode. Molecular docking results were in full agreement with the results obtained from thermodynamic analysis of the fluorescence data indicating the existence of one binding site for irinotecan in β-LG structure and revealed the hydrophobic nature of the interaction between irinotecan and the protein...

Xanthine oxidase (XOD), which could oxidize hypoxanthine to xanthine and then to uric acid, is a key enzyme in the pathogenesis of hyperuricemia and also a well-known target for the drug development to treat gout. In our study, the total alkaloids of Nelumbinis folium markedly inhibited XOD activity, with IC50 value being 3.313μg/mL. UHPLC-Q-TOF-MS and 3D docking analysis indicated that roemerine was a potential active ingredient. A response surface methodology combined with central composite design experiment was further developed and validated for the optimization of the reaction conditions between the total alkaloids of Nelumbinis folium and XOD, which could be considered as a meaningful research for the development of XOD inhibitor rapidly and sensitively...

CUB domain containing protein 1 (CDCP1) is a transmembrane protein involved in progression of several cancers. When located on the plasma membrane, full-length 135kDa CDCP1 can undergo proteolysis mediated by serine proteases that cleave after two adjacent amino acids (arginine 368 and lysine 369). This releases from the cell surface two 65kDa fragments, collectively termed ShE-CDCP1, that differ by one carboxyl terminal residue. To evaluate the function of CDCP1 and its potential utility as a cancer biomarker, in this study we developed an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to reliably and easily measure the concentration of ShE-CDCP1 in biological samples...
