David E. Alonso, Julie Kowalski, and Joseph E. Binkley
Cannabis is a complex mixture: terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, etc. Medicinal uses include treatment of chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, anxiety, and cancer. Its total composition is important in determining potency and medical effectiveness (Entourage Effect). In this study, a novel analytical approach was utilized for the effective characterization of terpenes in different cannabis strains.
- Implement the use of enhanced, comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GCxGC) for the separation of cannabis terpenes.
- Use a benchtop, high-performance time-of-flight mass spectrometer and powerful processing software to quickly and confidently identify terpenes and other cannabis compounds.
- Use software tools to compare different cannabis strains.
C1 Complement mediates human cord blood serum derived APP α-secretase cleavage activity in vitroPoster
Our results indicate that CBS contains proteins that promote α-secretase like enzymatic activity. LC-MS/MS analysis in CBSF and AgBSF revealed the presence of 142 proteins of which C1 subunits and alpha-2-macroglobulin showed significantly greater levels in αCBSF compared with αAgBSF. further study showed,C1 subunits can enhance sAPPα production and Aβ reduction in cell culture conditionREAD MORE
