Corydalis yanhusuo

Corydalis yanhusuo is a species of genus Corydalis. Research has indicated that the alkaloid dehydrocorybulbine (DHCB), extracted from the roots of the plant, can be helpful in reducing neuropathic pain.[1][2] Tetrahydropalmatine is a major constituent alkaloid which also has analgesic activity.[3]

Corydalis yanhusuo also contains the alkaloids glaucine[4][5] and palmatine.[6] It also contains the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor corydaline.[7]

N-methyltetrahydroprotoberberines with κ-opioid receptor agonist activity have been isolated from C. yanhusuo.[8]
