Rubusoside is a natural sweetener and a solubilizing agent with antiangiogenic and antiallergic properties. Rubusoside is an excellent solubilizing agent. It can enhance the solubility of a number of pharmaceutically important compounds, such as liquiritin, teniposide, curcumin, and etoposide.

Enzyme specificity and particularity is needed not only in enzymatic separation methods, but also in enzymatic determination methods for plant compound extraction. Stevioside, rubusoside, and rebaudioside A are natural sweet compounds from plants. These compounds have the same skeleton and only contain different side-chain glucosyl groups, making them difficult to separate. However, enzymes that target diterpenoid compounds and show specific activity for side-chain glucosyl groups are rare. Herein, we report the identification and characterization of an enzyme that can target both diterpenoid compounds and sophorose, namely, β-glucosidase SPBGL1 from Sphingomonas elodea ATCC 31461. SPBGL1 displayed high specificity toward sophorose, and activity toward stevioside, but not rebaudioside A. The stevioside conversion rate was 98%. SPBGL1 also operated at high substrate concentrations, such as in 50% crude steviol glycoside extract. Glucose liberated from stevioside was easy to quantify using the glucose oxidase method, allowing the stevioside content to be determined.

Diabetes is one of the most severe chronic diseases worldwide. It is widely accepted that apoptosis of the pancreatic beta cell is an important cause for the induction of hyperglycemia and high levels of free fatty acids (FFAs), also called lipotoxicity associated with pancreatic beta cell dysfunction. Lipotoxicity has been proven to be an important pathogenic factor of diabetes. However, until now, the mechanism of FFA-induced lipotoxicity in INS-1 cells has not been fully understood. Current anti-diabetic drugs that protect islet cells are often toxic to healthy cells, resulting in negative side effects. Thus, there is an urgent need to identify more effective and safer anti-diabetic agents to protect pancreatic islet cells. Rubusoside (RUB) is a major ingredient in the leaves of Rubus suavissimus S. Lee, which decreases blood glucose levels by protecting pancreatic islet cells. However, the exact mechanism of this effect is unknown. In this study, metabolomics experiments based on UPLC-Q/TOF MS characterized a total of 15 metabolites as potential biomarkers associated with lipotoxicity induced by palmitic acid in INS-1 cells. According to the metabolic pathway analysis, pentose and glucuronate interconversions, and glycerophospholipid metabolism were recognized as the most influenced metabolic pathways associated with lipotoxicity. Unexpectedly, deviations of 14 metabolites in lipotoxic INS-1 cells were regulated by RUB, suggesting synergistic mediation of the abnormal metabolic pathways. The metabolomics strategy based on UPLC/Q-TOF MS analysis provides a new insight into the mechanisms of lipotoxicity induced by palmitic acid and the anti-lipotoxic activity of RUB in INS-1 cells.
