After the winning advent of acupuncture to the West, fresh advances in analytical tools in chemistry, molecular biology and structures biology – in particular the improvement of the “omic” applied sciences – have back introduced chinese language medications into the point of interest of analysis on conventional chinese language medication (TCM).

Otherwise microscopic examination of drugs requires botanical expertise for the unequivocal authentication, as related species often possess similar features. With the improvements in molecular biotechnology and plant genetics in the past decades, genetic tools are considered to provide more reliability for authentication of herbal materials at the DNA level (Kumar et al. 2009). Thus in the meanwhile, various DNA-based molecular marker techniques are applied in many fields and their application is remarkably increasing for species characterization in medicinal plants (Shaw et al.

In general, these primer pairs produce polymorphic PCR fragments from the species of origin and their close relatives, but transportability to more distant taxa is limited. Attempts to design universal primers to amplify chloroplast microsatellites have 2 DNA-Based Authentication of TCM-Plants: Current Progress and Future Perspectives 39 resulted in a set of consensus chloroplast microsatellite primers (ccmp1–ccmp10) that aims at amplifying cpSSR regions in the chloroplast genome of dicotyledonous angiosperms (Weising and Gardner 1999).

It is estimated that 70–80 % of people worldwide rely chiefly on traditional herbal remedies as their primary form of health care (Farnsworth and Soejarto 1991; Pei 2001).
