Supplementary Material

Purity of Alantolactone (99.12%) was determined by HPLC. HPLC were performed on a Waters XTerra C18 (4.6 mm×150 mm, 5μm). The mobile phase consisted of (A) acetonitrile containing 0.2% acetic acid and (B) 0.2% acetic acid in water with gradient elution: 0–15 min, 10–70% B; 15–30 min, 70–80% B; The temperature of autosampler was maintained at 25°C and detection wavelength was 254 nm.
