REVIEW
E Joseph Brand, Zhongzhen Zhao
Cannabis sativa L. (Cannabaceae) has a long history of utilization as a fiber and seed crop in China, and its achenes ("seeds") as well as other plant parts have been recorded in Chinese medical texts for nearly 2000 years. While the primary applications of cannabis in Chinese medicine center around the use of the achenes, ancient indications for the female inflorescence, and other plant parts include conditions such as pain and mental illness that are the subject of current research into cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)...

Traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) have important therapeutic value in long-term clinical practice. However, because TCMs contain diverse ingredients and have complex effects on the human body, the molecular mechanisms of TCMs are poorly understood. In this work, we determined the gene expression profiles of cells in response to TCM components to investigate TCM activities at the molecular and cellular levels. MCF7 cells were separately treated with 102 different molecules from TCMs, and their gene expression profiles were compared with the Connectivity Map (CMAP)...

The high morbidity and mortality of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) did influence the quality of life of tumor patients world-wide. There is an urgent need to develop new therapies that have high anti-tumor activity and low toxicity side effects. It is widely accepted that autophagy can play diverse roles in carcinogenesis, such as induces pro-death of lung cancer cells or helps the escape from cell death, making it become a proper anticancer target. It's believed that various monomers of Chinese traditional medicine closely correlates to anti-NSCLC activities, and that even could affect the acquired multiple drug resistance (MDR)...

Nowadays, in-silico tools are widely used to provide the potential structure of the metabolites formed depending on the site of metabolism. These methods can also highlight the molecular moieties that help to direct the molecule into the cytochrome cavity so that the site of metabolism is in proximity to the catalytic center. In this mini-review, we summarized three aspects of the in-silico methods in the application of prediction the ADME (absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion) properties of compounds: structure-based approaches for predicting molecular modeling of drug metabolizing enzymes; in-silico metabolite prediction; and pharmacophore models for analysis substrate specificity...
