Arecoline is the most important alkaloid in the chemical composition of betel nut, with certain pharmacological effects and toxic side effects. Based on an advanced HPLC-MS platform, Creative Proteomics provides arecoline targeting analysis services to help analyze dynamic metabolic processes and reveal relevant metabolic mechanisms, thus guiding your research with reliable and accurate measurement results.
Arecoline is an M agonist that excites cholinergic M receptors (muscarinic receptors) and stimulates sympathetic nerves. Arecoline acts on the gastrointestinal digestive system, mainly on the gastrointestinal propulsion, and also promotes small intestine peristalsis. Arecoline protects against Ox-LDL-induced vascular endothelial damage and inhibits the overexpression of high-fat (or high-sugar)-induced vascular endothelial cell adhesion molecules. However, arecoline also has toxic side effects, and the most studied and concentrated effect is on oral cells. Studies have shown that chewing rough betel nut can cause oral mucosal inflammation, oral submucosal fibrosis, DNA damage and malignancy.
In order to better understand the functions and mechanisms of arecoline, and to promote the application of arecoline in anthelmintic, bactericidal, anti-thrombotic, anti-atherosclerotic, oral and neurological applications, it is necessary to identify and analyze the changes in arecoline content using precise and reliable techniques.
Molecular structure of arecoline
- Tissue ≥ 200 mg/sample
- Plasma ≥ 200 μL/sample
- Blood ≥ 500 μL/sample
- Cells or bacteria > 107, supernatant > 2 ml
- Drugs ≥ 0.2 g/sample
- For other sample types, please consult technical support or sales.
In order to ensure the accuracy of the samples and reduce systematic errors during sampling, it is necessary to select more than 3 materials with the same condition for each sample. The same condition refers to the same period, basically the same phenotype, and the same part. It is recommended that prepare more than 6 biological replicates.
Workflow of Targeted Metabolomics Service of Arecoline
Targeted metabolomics is a study that identifies and quantitatively analyzes known metabolites in a sample. Its advantages are high specificity and accuracy. Therefore, this method has been widely used to analyze and compare multiple target metabolites in different physiological states.
