Chinese Name (pinyin): Hujisheng

Chinese Name  :

Common Name  :Colored Mistletoe Herb

Specific Name  : Herba visci

Scientific Name:
Collection  : The drug is collected from winter to spring, removed from wide stem, cut into section and dried or dried after steaming.

Description  : Stems cylindrical, 2 - 5 branched, about 30cm long, 0.3 - 1cm in diameter, externally yellowish green, golden yellow or yellowish brown with longitudinal wrinkles, nodes swollen with branches or scars of branches, light texture fragile, easily broken, fracture uneven, bark yellow, wood pale yellow, rays radial, pith often inclined to one side. Leaves opposite on the tips of the branches, easily fallen off, sessile, lamina long elliptical, lanceolate, 2 - 7cm long, 0.5 - 1.5cm wide, apex obtuse, bas cuneate, margins entire, externally yellowish green with fine wrinkles, quinquenervis in the middle distinct. Texture leathery, berry spherical, crumpled, odorless taste slightly bitter, sticky on chewing.

Identification  : 1.Transverse section of stem: Epidermal cells rectangular covered with yellowish green cuticle, 19 - 80µm thick. Cortex broader, fibres of several tens in bundles, slightly lignified, stone cells of old stem numerous, scattered singly or in groups. Phloem relatively narrow with stone cells scattered in old stems, cambium indistinct. Xylem rays with scattered fibre bundles, vessels surrounded by numerous fibres and few heterogeneous cells. Pith distinct, parenchymatous cells containing clusters of calcium oxalate and a few prisms.Powder of stem: Pale yellow, fragments of epidermis yellowish green, cells subsquare, stomata visible, fibres in bundles, 10 - 34µm in diameter, walls thickened, somewhat sinuous and slightly lignified. Heterogeneous cells irregular, walls thickened, slightly lignified with big lumen. Clusters of calcium oxalate 17 - 45µm in diameter. Few prisms, 8 - 30µm in diameter. Stone cells subsquare, subpolygonal or irregular, 42 - 102µm in diameter.2. To 1 - 2g in pieces add 30ml of ethanol, heat under reflux for 30 minutes, cool, filter. Evaporate the filtrate to dryness, dissolve the residue in 1ml and use it as the test solution. Prepare a solution of 1.5g reference drug of Herba Visci in same way as that described for test solution. Dissolve oleonolic acid CRS in absolute ethanol to produce a solution containing 1mg per ml as the reference solution. Carry out the method for thin layer chromatography (appendix Vl B) using silica gel G as the coating substance and a mixture of toluene-ethyl actetate glacial acetic acid (8:2:0.1) as the mobile phase. Apply separately 4µl of each of the test solution and the reference drug solution and 2µl of reference solution to the plate. After developing and removal of the plate, dry it in the air. Spray with 10% sulfuric acid in ethanol solution, heat at 80ºC until the colour of the spot appears clearly, examine under sun light and ultra violet light (365nm). A spot in the chromatogram obtained from the test solution correspond in position and colour to the spot in the chromatogram obtained from the reference solution and reference drug solution.

Processing  : Eliminate foreign matter, wash briefly, soften thoroughly, cut into thick slices and dry.

Action  : To relieve rehumatic conditions, to replenish the liver and the kidney, to strengthen the tendosn and bones, and to prevent abortion.

Indication  : rheumatic arthralgia, aching and weakness of the loins and knees; threatened abortion

Precautions  :

Dosage  : 9 to 15 g.

Storage  : Preserve in a dry place, protected from moth.
