Icariin (1a), a 7-O-glycosylated flavonoid glycoside, is recognized as the major pharmacologically active ingredient of Epimedium plants, which have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. However, no glycosyltransferase (GT) responsible for the 7-O-glycosylation of flavonoids has been identified from Epimedium plants to date. Herein, a GT, Ep7GT, was identified from E. pseudowushanense B. L. Guo, which can regiospecifically transfer a glucose moiety to baohuoside (1) at 7-OH to form icariin (1a). Ep7GT showed a rare broad donor substrate spectrum, including UDP-glucose, UDP-xylose, UDP-N-acetylglucosamine, UDP-rhamnose, UDP-galactose, UDP-glucuronic acid and TDP-glucose. Moreover, two new derivatives of icariin (1a), 7-O-β-d-[2-(acetylamino)-2-deoxy-glucopyranosyl]-baohuoside (1b) and 7-O-β-d-xylosyl-baohuoside (1c), were biosynthesized by using Ep7GT in vitro. Engineered Escherichia coli harbouring Ep7GT was constructed, and 10.1 μg mL-1 icariin (1a) was yielded by whole-cell biotransformation with baohuoside (1) as the substrate. The present work not only characterizes the GT responsible for the 7-O-glycosylation in the biosynthesis of icariin in Epimedium plants, but also indicates the significant potential of an enzymatic approach for the production of glycosylated baohuoside derivatives with different sugar moieties. What’s more, these findings also provide a promising alternative for producing natural/unnatural bioactive flavonoid glycosides by metabolic engineering.

Herba Epimedii, a commonly used Chinese medicine, has attracted much attention recently because of its potential hepatotoxic effects. 2″-O-Rhamnosyl icariside II, baohuoside I and baohuoside II are the main components of Herba Epimedii, and previous research indicates that these three compounds are related to the hepatotoxicity of Herba Epimedii. To test this idea, in this study, HL-7702 and HepG2 cells were chosen as the in vitro models and the influences of these three compounds on a series of cytotoxicity indices, including ALT, AST, LDH, SOD, GSH, MDA, ROS and MMP, were determined. The results showed that at certain concentrations, the three compounds had different effects on the indices. Among them, baohuoside I at high concentration (32 μg/mL) displayed more significant cytotoxicity than the other two compounds; therefore, it was inferred to be more closely correlated with the liver injury induced by Herba Epimedii combined with the previous study, and its toxic mechanisms may be involved in increasing oxidative stress and inducing apoptosis. The findings of this study may provide evidence of the toxic composition of Herba Epimedii to preliminarily discuss the toxic mechanisms and provide improved guidance for its clinical safety.

Epimedium is used in traditional Chinese medicine and contains flavonol glycosides that exhibit multiple biological activities. These bioactive flavonol glycosides usually have a rhamnose moiety at the 3-OH position of prenylflavonols, such as icariin (9), baohuoside I (1a) and baohuoside II (2a). However, to date, no rhamnosyltransferase has been reported to catalyze the 3-O-rhamnosylation of prenylflavonols. In this article, a flavonol rhamnosyltransferase, EpPF3RT, was identified from E. pseudowushanense B. L. Guo. The recombinant enzyme regiospecifically transfers a rhamnose moiety to 8-prenylkaempferol (1) and anhydroicaritin (2) at the 3-OH position to form baohuoside II (1a) and baohuoside I (2a) in vitro. In addition, a UDP-rhamnose synthase gene, EpRhS, from E. pseudowushanense was functionally characterized and used to produce the UDP-rhamnose sugar donor. Furthermore, an engineered Escherichia coli strain containing EpPF3RT and EpRhS was established to produce baohuoside II (1a) from whole cells. These studies indicate the significant potential of an enzymatic approach for the rhamnosylation of bioactive flavonoids in Epimedium plants and will provide a promising alternative for producing bioactive rhamnosylated flavonoids combined with other genes/enzymes by synthetic biology.
