Nutritional Evaluation of Adinandra Nitida Leaves

By Gang Li Xiaohong Ge Benguo Liu Changzhong Liu

DOI:, Pub. Date: 29 Aug. 2011

In this study, the nutritional evaluation of Adinandra nitida leaves was investigated. It was found that Adinandra nitida leaves were rich in necessary amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids. The content of the main flavonoid (camellianin A) was as high as 27.57±0.92 %. These results proved the high nutritional value of Adinandra nitida leaves. It has great commercial interest in the food and phyto-pharmaceutical market.

Characterization and Anti-proliferative Activity of Ethanol Extract of Tartary Buckwheat

By Yuxiang Ma Benguo Liu Huirong Zhang Li Yang

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2011

Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum) has been consumed in China as health food and medicine. In this study, the ethanol extract (EE) of tartary buckwheat was prepared. The major flavonoid in EE was identified as rutin by HPLC-PDA-ESI/MS and the content of rutin in EE was determined as 27.4 % by HPLC. In the anticancer assay, it was found EE could inhibit the proliferation of the human hepatocellular liver carcinoma Hep G2 cell line in a dose-dependent manner. The increase of an early apoptotic population was observed by both annexin-FITC and PI staining, which suggested that EE could induce Hep G2 cells to enter into apoptosis.
