    Ma ZZ, Xu W, Jensen NH, Roth BL, Liu-Chen LY, Lee DY. Isoquinoline alkaloids isolated from Corydalis yanhusuo and their binding affinities at the dopamine D1 receptor.
    Molecules. 2008 Sep 25;13(9):2303-2312.

    ABSTRACT. Bioactivity-guided fractionation of Corydalis yanhusuo has resulted in the isolation of eight known isoquinoline alkaloids - tetrahydropalmatine, isocorypalmine, stylopine, corydaline, columbamine, coptisin, 13-methylpalmatine, and dehydrocorybulbine. The tertiary alkaloids were further analyzed by chiral HPLC to determine the ratios of d-and l-isomers. The isolated compounds were screened for their binding affinities at the dopamine D(1) receptor. Isocorypalmine had the highest affinity (K(i) = 83 nM). The structure-affinity relationships of these alkaloids are discussed.
