Faculty of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Faculty of Graduate Studies jointly organized the 77-79th Academic Reports of SPU Wuya Forum on April 14. Prof. Ma Xiaochi from School of Pharmacy, Dalian Medical University, prof. Gao Hao from Jinan University, and Hu Youcai, a researcher from Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences visited Shenyang Pharmaceutical University as guest speakers at the invitation of Li Hua, dean of Faculty of Traditional Chinese Medicine.


Prof. Ma Xiaochi made a reportthe Metabolic Properties of Toad Venom Chemical Composition and Anti-tumor Activity Research. He lectured on toad venom chemical composition and rapid preparation method, the metabolic properties of bufanolide alkene, and the metabolic species differences and the significance of bufanolide alkene and the development of new metabolic enzyme probes of toad venom. The metabolic properties of toad venom were first revealed in this report, on the basis of which, the active ingredients with good metabolic properties were found, and the method of experimental animal selection based on the metabolic species difference was established, the specificity probes of multiple metabolic enzymes were found from toad venom. The key substance and its law of action were revealed, meanwhile the potential mechanism of active components in traditional Chinese medicine was clarified.


Prof. Gao Hao gave a lecturethe Heterogeneous Phenomenon of the Apparent Equivalence Diastereomers in Identification of Organic Compound Structure. He made a brief introduction to the discovery of traditional Chinese medicine structure, and emphasized the structural research methods as well as the structural research techniques. The concept of “apparent equivalence diastereomers” and the relevant judgment theorem were proposed. The method of structural identification based on data comparison was developed and perfected. Nuclear magnetic resonance is the most important means of structural identification. It is generally believed that having the same NMR data indicates the same compound or enantiomers in the process of structural identification based on the comparison of NMR data. Prof. Gao found two groups of naturally occurring diastereoisomers, showing the same NMR data. By exploring the causes, he put forward that the concept of “apparent equivalence diastereomers” was to describe the diastereoisomers with the same NMR data, and also presented the judgment theorem. He developed and improved the methodology for identification of organic compounds structures based on the comparison of NMR data.


Researcher Hu Youcai made a research reportGenes and Chemistry of Natural Product Studies. Different from the traditional natural product research model, he started from the genome and revealed the intrinsic link between genes and chemical structure. On the one hand, genes were used to explore compounds: screening and activating inactive gene family at the gene level by using molecular biological means, to produce new natural products and provide a new approach for the discovery of novel structures and active natural products. On the other hand, the chemical structure was used as the starting point: the biosynthesis mechanism of these natural compounds was revealed, and furthermore the biosynthesis pathway was regulated and reconstructed, so as to produce new natural products.


In the end, the three professors encouraged students to cultivate a rigorous logical thinking method, and to attach importance to research and study of Chinese medicine, and welcomed students to apply for their laboratories and communicate with each other. Finally, Prof. Li Hua expressed his appreciation to the three professors’ visits and lectures despite their busy schedules, and he also spoke highly of these academic reports. He hoped all the students present to increase their knowledge reserves and raise their theoretical level so as to become leaders in pharmaceutical research field in the future just as the professors standing on the podium, which was greeted with loud applause from time to time.
