      A novel agarase, Gaa16B, isolated from the marine bacterium Gilvimarinus agarilyticus JEA5, and the moisturizing effect of its partial hydrolysis products
      Y. LEE, E. JO, Y.-J. LEE, T.-Y. EOM, Y. GANG, Y.-H. KANG, S. D. MARASINGHE, S. A. HETTIARACHCHI, D.-H. KANG, Chulhong OH* (*Jeju Marine Research Center, Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology, Gujwa-eup, Jeju, Korea;

      Marine Drugs 20(1), 2 (2022). Samples were the products of partial vs. complete hydrolysis of agar by rGaa16Bc, a recombinant form of agarase Gaa16B from Gilvimarinus agarilyticus (Cellvibrionaceae) overexpressed in Escherichia coli. D-galactose (G) and its oligomers (neoagarobiose (NA2), neoagarotetraose (NA4), neoagarohexaose (NA6)) were used as standards. TLC on silica gel with n-butanol – acetic acid – water 2:1:1. Visualization by spraying orcinol reagent (50 mg orcine monohydrate in 100 mL acetone and 8 mL sulfuric acid), followed by 10 min heating at 110° C. The observed patterns showed the apparition of NA6 and NA4 among the hydrolytic products already after 20 min reaction, whereas NA4 and NA2 were the main products after over-night complete hydrolysis.

      Planar chromatographic super-hyphenations for rapid dereplication
      Gertrud MORLOCK (Institute of Nutritional Science, Chair of Food Science, and Interdisciplinary Research Center, Justus Liebig University Giessen, 35392 Giessen, Germany,

      Phytochem. Rev. (2022). The paper discussed a prioritization approach for dereplication that focuses on the most necessary to discover as a tool to deliver experimental real-world results. The principle of planar chromatographic super-hypenations was discussed, including a workflow that combined chemistry and biology to prioritize the compounds in complex samples. The workflow consisted in 1) parallel screening and separation of multiple complex mixtures using imaging HPTLC, 2) planar multiplex bioassay for non-targeted detection of important active compounds, and 3) heart-cut elution of active zones of interest directly out of the bioautogram into orthogonal HPLC-DAD-ESI-HRMS for targeted characterization. The power of planar multiplex bioassays was described for different applications, and chances and limitations for dereplication were also discussed.

      Investigation of the estrogenic potential of 15 rosé, white and red wines via effect-directed ten-dimensional hyphenation
      T. SCHREINER, Gertrud MORLOCK* (*Institute of Nutritional Science, Chair of Food Science, and Interdisciplinary Research Center, Justus Liebig University Giessen, 35392 Giessen, Germany,

      J. Chromatogr. A. 1690, 463775 (2023). HPTLC of estrogen-like and antiestrogen-like compounds in 15 rosé, white and red wine samples of different origin on RP-18 with n-hexane - ethyl acetate 4:1. Bioassay by dipping into the yeast cell suspension, followed by incubation at 30 °C for 3 h and drying for 4 min. Detection by dipping into 40 mL MUG substrate solution (16 mg MUG in 1 mL dimethyl sulfoxide and 39 mL citrate buffer) for 5 s, followed by incubation at 37 °C for 1 h and drying for 2 min. Detection at FLD 366 nm/ > 400 nm. The 10D hyphenation NP-HPTLC−UV/Vis/FLD–pYAES−heartcut–RP-HPLC–DAD–HRMS/MS allowed the  detection of estrogens as well as antiestrogens in the matrix-rich wine.

      Planar bioluminescent cytotoxicity assay via genetically modified adherent human reporter cell lines, applied to authenticity screening of Saussurea costus root
      F. MÜGGE, Gertrud MORLOCK* (*Institute of Nutritional Science, Chair of Food Science, and Interdisciplinary Research Center, Justus Liebig University Giessen, 35392 Giessen, Germany,

      J. Chromatogr. A. 1683, 463522 (2022). HPTLC of powdered root sample of Saussurea costus on silica gel with n-hexane - toluene - tetrahydrofuran 10:1:2. Planar bioluminiscent cytotoxicity assay by dipping into concentrated PBS, followed by removal of excess liquid and adding of human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293T cells expressing ELuc, which uses D-luciferin as the substrate for light emission (cell suspension of 5000 cells/μL). To avoid drying out of the plate, two stripes of paper were added to the side of the chamber, which were wetted with 1.5 mL of bidistilled water. After incubation for 6 h, the HPTLC plate was completely dried under cold air, followed by dipping twice into the respective bioluminescent substrate solution for each cell type. Dose-dependent cytotoxicity activity was calculated for the bioluminescence signal reduction.

      E. AZADNIYA, Gertrud MORLOCK* (*Institute of Nutritional Science, and Interdisciplinary Research Center, Justus Liebig University Giessen, Heinrich-Buff-Ring 26-32, 35392 Giessen, Germany,

      Anal. Methods. 11, 4939-4945 (2019). HPTLC of Peganum harmala seeds on silica gel with ethyl acetate - methanol - ammonia (25%) 85:11:4. Detection under UV light at 254 and 366 nm. Track pattern application by applying each reference compound solution (physostigmine: 0.1–1.5 ng/zone; rivastigmine tartrate and piperine: 200–2000 ng/zone). A new piezoelectric spraying workflow was applied for the HPTLC-enzyme assay: the plate was sprayed with the enzyme solution (6.6 units per mL AChE or 3.3 units per mL BChE), followed by incubation at 37 °C for 25 min and spraying with 0.5 mL substrate-chromogenic solution and drying. The enzyme inhibition densitograms of both assays were measured by inverse scan at 546 nm using a mercury lamp. Equivalency of the AChE/BChE inhibition was calculated for two quantitative modes: applied and developed. A higher accuracy was obtained via an appropriate co-developed reference inhibitor for the enzyme inhibition equivalency calculation.
