|Structural identification of the metabolites of ganoderic acid B from Ganoderma lucidum in rats based on liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization hybrid ion trap and time-of-flight mass spectrometry.[Pubmed: 23723086]|
|Ganoderic acid B (GAB), a representative triterpenoid in Ganoderma lucidum, possesses various pharmaceutical effects and has been used as a chemical marker in quality control of G. lucidum and related products. The metabolites of Ganoderic acid B in vivo after its oral administration to rats were investigated by liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization hybrid ion trap and time-of-flight mass spectrometry. A total of 14 metabolites of Ganoderic acid B in rat plasma, bile and various organs were detected and identified by direct comparison with the authentic compounds and their characteristic mass fragmentation patterns. The results showed that oxidization and hydroxylation were the common metabolic pathways for Ganoderic acid B in rats. Moreover, some reduction metabolites of Ganoderic acid B were detected in rat kidney and stomach and glucuronidation only appeared in rat bile. This is the first report on the metabolites of Ganoderic acid B in vivo.|

|Ganoderic acid B's influence towards the therapeutic window of trifluoperazine (TFP).[Pubmed: 25834543]|
|BACKGROUND: Ganoderic acid B is an important bioactive ingredient isolated from Ganoderma lucidum, and exhibits various pharmacological activities. AIMS: To investigate the influence of Ganoderic acid B towards the therapeutic window of trifluoperazine (TFP). METHODS: In vitro human liver microsomes (HLMs) incubation system was used to determine the inhibition of Ganoderic acid B towards the glucuronidation of trifluoperazine (TFP). RESULTS: Ganoderic acid B exerted concentration-dependent inhibition towards the glucuronidation of TFP. Furthermore, Dixon plot was used to determine the inhibition type. The intersection point was located in the second quadrant in Dixon plot, indicating the competitive inhibition of Ganoderic acid B towards TFP glucuronidation. Through fitting the data using competitive nonlinear fitting equation, the inhibition kinetic parameter was calculated to be 56.7 uM. CONCLUSION: All this data indicated the potential influence of Ganoderic acid B-containing herbs towards therapeutic window of TFP. Given that the glucuronidation reaction of TFP is the probe reaction of UGT1A4, the data obtained from the present study also indicated the potential influence of Ganoderic acid-containing herbs towards the therapeutic window of drugs mainly undergoing UGT1A4-mediated metabolism.|
