      Guided isolation of new iridoid glucosides from Anarrhinum pubescens by high-performance thin-layer chromatography – acetylcholinesterase assay
      E. MAHRAN, Gertrud E. MORLOCK*, M. KEUSGEN (*Institute of Nutritional Science, Justus Liebig University Giessen, and TransMIT Center of Effect-Directed Analysis, Giessen, Germany;

      J Chromatogr A, 1609, 460438 (2020). HPTLC of defatted hydro-methanolic extract of Anarrhinum pubescens (= A. duriminium) aerial parts (Plantaginaceae) on silica gel with chloroform – methanol 9:2. When intended for MS experiments, layers were previously washed twice with methanol – water 4:1 and heated 20 min at 110 °C. Derivatization by automatic piezoelectric spraying of anisaldehyde sulfuric acid reagent, followed by heating 4 min at 105 °C. Effect-directed analysis for acetyl-cholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors was performed by successive piezoelectric sprayings with TRIS buffer, with AChE solution and (after 30 min incubation at 37 °C) with naphthyl acetate and Fast Blue salt B solution. White inhibiting zones on purple background were documented under white light, and densitometry was measured by scanning in fluorescence mode at 500 nm. One of the active bands was eluted from untreated layer with methanol through the oval elution head of a TLC-MS interface pump, into a quadrupole-Orbitrap mass spectrometer using heated electrospray ionization (HESI); a full scan mass spectrum (m/z 50−750) in the positive ionization mode was recorded, as well as HRMS/MS data across a range of collision energies (10–50 V). The compound was identified as foliamenthoyl-cinnamoyl-antirrhinoside. It was applied with two other active antirrhinosides (iridoids), all isolated from the extract through column chromatography, on an HPTLC layer without migration and submitted to AChE assay; their activity was expressed as equivalency towards rivastigmine tartrate as positive control.
