ABSTRACT
Formalin-induced pain models were used in rats to evaluate the antinociceptive effect of the total alkaloids of Corydalis yanhusuo (TAC). The results indicated that formalin-evoked spontaneous nociceptive responses (licking behavior) could be inhibited significantly by giving (intragingival) TAC at a single dose of 150 mg/kg. Subsequently, an online comprehensive two-dimensional biochromatography method with a silica-bonded human serum albumin (HSA) column in the first dimension and a monolithic ODS column in the second was developed. The absorbed bioactive components were screened by comparing and contrasting the components detected in the plasma and striatum with those in TAC. More than 100 compounds were separated and detected in the TAC, among which 13 compounds were identified. About 40 compounds (seven compounds identified) were absorbed into the plasma with appropriate concentrations and about 20 compounds (four compounds identified) passed through the blood-brain barrier into the striatum. Of interest, four compounds (protopine, glaucine, tetrahydropalmatine, and corydaline) which were reported to possess profound antinociceptive effects exhibited high concentrations in the striatum. This may result from their synergistic effects in regulating the formalin-induced nociception. The results indicated that the comprehensive two-dimensional biochromatography method developed is capable of screening the bioactive components in Corydalis yanhusuo and providing valuable information for understanding the mechanisms by which Corydalis yanhusuo alleviates nociception.
