Fingerprinting alterations of secondary metabolites of tangerine peels during growth by HPLC-DAD and chemometric methods.


PMID 19664461

Abstract

Tangerine peels are herbal materials of two coupled traditional Chinese medicines, Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae (PCR) and Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae Viride (PCRV). In this paper, high-performance liquid chromatographic fingerprints of tangerine peels during growth were firstly measured for deliberately collected 34 samples from three species (Citrus reticulata 'Chachi', Citrus reticulata 'Dahongpao' and Citrus erythrosa Tanaka). After sixteen characteristic components which have similar change trends in the grown process were screened out with the help of heuristic evolving latent projection (HELP) method, score plots of principal component analysis (PCA) successfully presented the grown footprints of tangerine peels. It implied that July might be the best harvest time for PCRV, November and December were better for PCR. Furthermore, hesperidin, nobiletin and tangeretin were screened as chemical markers by loadings of PCA. The HPLC-HELP-PCA strategy has shown its potential in optimization of harvest time and chemical markers' screening, which will have wide perspective in the analysis of "coupled TCMs".
