|After receiving:||The packaging of the product may have turned upside down during transportation, resulting in the natural compounds adhering to the neck or cap of the vial. take the vial out of its packaging and gently shake to let the compounds fall to the bottom of the vial. for liquid products, centrifuge at 200-500 RPM to gather the liquid at the bottom of the vial. try to avoid loss or contamination during handling.|

|Blocking effects of a new component, paeoniflorigenone, in paeony root on neuromuscular junctions of frogs and mice.[Pubmed: 6471620]|
|A new monoterpene, Paeoniflorigenone (PFG) (100-900 micrograms/ml), which was isolated from paeony roots and identified chemically, suppressed both indirectly and directly stimulated muscle twitchings of frog sciatic nerve-sartorius muscle preparation, and it indirectly stimulated muscle twitchings of phrenic nerve-diaphragm muscle preparations. The suppression effect by Paeoniflorigenone (300 micrograms/ml) on twitching was not reversed by neostigmine (60 micrograms/ml) and was restored by washing out of Paeoniflorigenone. Paeoniflorigenone (150 micrograms/ml) depolarized the diaphragm muscle membranes by 10 mV and did not change the electrotonic potentials. Paeoniflorigenone (100 micrograms/ml) inhibited weakly acetylcholine (5 micrograms/ml)-induced slow contractions. These results demonstrated that Paeoniflorigenone is a depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, being similar to succinylcholine, except that Paeoniflorigenone did not produce any contraction, but succinylcholine did.|

|Anti-inflammatory effect of paeoniflorigenone isolated from Paeoniae Radix.[Reference: WebLink]|
|In Northeast Asia, Paeoniae Radix has been used in treatments of inflammation-causing diseases such as arthritis for many centuries. Paeoniflorin, one of the principle bioactive monoterpene glucosides from the paeony root, is reported to be mostly responsible for the effectiveness of the treatments. However, the anti-inflammatory effect of a monoterpene, Paeoniflorigenone (PFG) which partially has the moiety of paeoniflorin minus a glucose structure is unknown. Thus, the aim of this work was to investigate anti-inflammatory activity of PFG. For the investigation, PFG activity on the NO (nitric oxide) prodn. from LPS-stimulated macrophages, and the anti-inflammatory effect was tested in the animal model of septic arthritis caused by Candida albicans, a major etiol. agent for septic arthritis. For induction of the arthritis, mice were administered with an emulsion of C. albicans cell wall (CACW) mixed with Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA) via footpad-injection (Day 0); PFG at a dose of 0.5 or 1 mg/mouse (25 or 50 mg/kg of body-wt.) was given to the animals on Day 3, 6, and 9; footpads were scored for arthritis. Moreover, the PFG effect on proliferation of T-lymphocyte that causes aggravation of arthritis was addnl. tested.|

|Platelet anti-aggregatory and blood anti-coagulant effects of compounds isolated from Paeonia lactiflora and Paeonia suffruticosa.[Pubmed: 20824965]|
|Eighteen compounds, which have been reported to be present in both plant medicines, were evaluated for their effects on platelet aggregation and blood coagulation. Paeonol (5), paeoniflorin (9), benzoylpaeoniflorin (11), and benzoyloxypaeoniflorin (12) were found to be the major common active constituents and they would collectively contribute to improving blood circulation through their inhibitory effects on both platelet aggregation and blood coagulation. In addition, methylgallate (4), (+)-catechin (7), Paeoniflorigenone (8), galloylpaeoniflorin (13), and daucosterol (16) may also take part in improving blood circulation by inhibiting ether platelet aggregation and/or blood coagulation.|

|Apoptosis-inducing activity and antiproliferative effect of Paeoniflorigenone from moutan cortex[Reference: WebLink]|
|Ninety samples from the extracts of plants from traditional Chinese medicines were screened for antitumor activity. Paeoniflorigenone (PFG) was isolated as an active ingredient from the root of moutan cortex, which showed the strongest activity. In addition, our data indicated that PFG was cytotoxic and induced apoptosis selectively in the cancer cell lines. These effects were cancelled by the addition of caspase inhibitor Z-VAD-FMK, suggesting that it was mediated by caspase-3 activation.|
