Absorption and transport of isoflavonoid compounds from Tongmai formula across human intestinal epithelial (Caco-2) cells in vitro.[Pubmed: 29171242
Tongmai formula (TMF) is a drug combination of three components including Puerariae Lobatae Radix [roots of Pueraria lobata], Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix (roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza) and Chuanxiong Rhizoma (rhizomes of Ligusticum chuanxiong) in a weight ratio of 1∶1∶1.
METHODS AND RESULTS:
The absorption and transport of isoflavonoid compounds from Tongmai formula across human intestinal epithelial (Caco-2) cells in vitro were studied in this paper. The assay isoflavonoid compounds include daidzein, formononetin, 5-hydroxylononin, ononin, daidzin, 3'-methoxypuerarin, genistin, puerarin,
formononetin-8-C-β-D-apiofuranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside(Formononetin-8-C-beta-D-apiofuranosyl-(1->6)-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside), formononetin-7-O-β-D-apiofuranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, lanceolarin, kakkanin, daidzein-7,4'-di-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, mirificin, 3'-hydroxypuerarin, 3'-methoxydaidzin, formononetin-8-C-β-D-xylopyranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, genistein-8-C-β-D-apiofuranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, genistein-7-O-β-D-apiofuranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (ambocin), 3'-hydroxymirificin, 6″-O-β-D-xylosylpuerarin, biochanin A-8-C-β-D-apiofuranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, 3'-methoxydaidzein-7,4'-di-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, daidzein-7-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, and daidzein-7-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside. By using human Caco-2 monolayer as an intestinal epithelial cell model in vitro, the permeability of above-mentioned 25 isoflavonoids in TMF were studied from the apical (AP) side to basolateral (BL) side or from the BL side to AP side. The assay compounds were determined by reversed phased high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with UV detector. Transport parameters and apparent permeability coefficients (Papp) were then calculated and and compared with those of propranolol and atenolol, which are the transcellular transport marker and as a control substance for high and poor permeability, respectively. The Papp values of daidzein and formononetin were (2.55±0.03) ×10⁻⁵,(3.06±0.01) ×10⁻⁵ cm•s⁻¹ from AP side to BL side, respectively, and (2.62±0.00) ×10⁻⁵, (2.65±0.11) ×10⁻⁵ cm•s⁻¹ from BL side to AP side, respectively. Under the condition of this experiment, the Papp value was (2.66±0.32) ×10⁻⁵ cm•s⁻¹ for propranolol and (2.34±0.10) ×10⁻⁷ cm•s⁻¹ for atenolol. The Papp values of daidzein and formononetin were at a same magnitude with those of propranolol. And the Papp values of other 23 isoflavonoid compounds were at a same magnitude with those of atenolol. On the other hand, the rats of Papp AP→BL/Papp BL→AP of daidzein and formononetin on the influx transport were 0.97 and 1.15, respectively. It can be predicted that daidzein and formononetin can be absorbed across intestinal epithelial cells to go to the body circulation by the passive diffusion mechanism and they were assigned to the well-absorbed compounds. Other 23 isoflavonoid compounds were assigned to the poorly absorbed compounds.
Because of the rats of Papp AP→BL/Papp BL→AP of 5-hydroxylononin, genistin, lanceolarin, kakkanin, and genistein-7-O-β-D-apiofuranosyl-(1→6)-O-β-D-glucopyranoside were 0.18, 0.28, 0.45, 0.38, 0.49, they may have been involved in the efflux mechanism in Caco-2 cells monolayer model from the BL side to AP side direction.

On the basis of the above mentioned results and previously reported chem. studies on the Radix Puerariae, Salvia miltiorrhiza, and Ligusticum chuanxiong, it was suggested that the main chem. components were isoflavonoid compds. coming from the Radix Puerariae, and the secondary components were tanshinones coming from the Salvia miltiorrhiza, and senkyunolide H coming from the Ligusticum chuanxiong in the Tongmai formula. Compds. 16, 17, and 29 were isolated from Radix Puerariae and the genus Pueraria DC. for the first time.
