Abstract Common emphasis of the fact that isoflavonoids are characteristic metabolites of leguminous plants sometimes leads to overlooking that the presence of isoflavonoids has been reported in several dozen other families. The spectrum of isoflavonoid producing taxa includes the representatives of four classes of multicellular plants, namely the Bryopsida, the Pinopsida, the Magnoliopsida and the Liliopsida. A review, recently published by Reynaud et al. [Reynaud, J., Guilet D., Terreux R., Lussignol M., Walchshofer N., 2005. Isoflavonoids in non-leguminous families: an update. Nat. Prod. Rep. 22, 504–515], provided listing of 164 isoflavonoids altogether reported in 31 non-leguminous angiosperm families. In this contribution we complement the abovementioned inventory bringing the references on further 17 isoflavonoid producing families and on additional 49 isoflavonoids reported to occur in non-leguminous plants.

Extracts from Arabidopsis thaliana leaves and inflorescence stalks and from Lepidium sativa (Brassicaceae) seedlings were analysed by HPLC-MS-SIM and by five isoflavonoid-specific ELISA methods after the HPLC fractionation of samples, in order to determine presence of isoflavonoids. Individual ELISAs were specific for daidzein, genistein, biochanin A and for their derivatives substituted either at the 4′- or at the 7- positions. Both analytical approaches revealed homologous spectra of isoflavon...

Abstract Several types of isoflavonoid-like immunoreactivity were detected in water-ethanolic extracts from Acca sellowiana (Berg) Burret, Psidium guajava L. and Psidium littorale Raddi (Myrtaceae) leaves. Chromatographic mobility of the immunoreactive substances was compared to that of authentic standards, revealing a spectrum of isoflavonoid metabolites in both genera. Aglycones as well as glycosides were detected, namely daidzin, genistin, daidzein, genistein, formononetin, biochanin A, prune...

Abstract The health effects of consumption of isoflavones from soy products are being actively investigated, yet food composition tables often have incomplete values for commercial foods containing soy additives. Therefore, we analyzed 167 processed and fast foods with soy additives (e.g. isolated soy protein, soy protein concentrate, soy flour, and hydrolyzed soy protein) for the isoflavones daidzein, glycitein, and genistein. Total isoflavones were computed by adding these three isoflavones. A...

Activity-guided isolation of antifungal, antibacterial, and antioxidant compounds from the dichloromethane extract of the aerial parts of Eriophorum scheuchzeri led to the isolation of eight flavonoids. Three isoflavones and one flavanone are new natural compounds. The isolation of the bioactive compounds was performed by centrifugal partition chromatography. Fractions and pure compounds were monitored by a direct TLC bioautographic assay. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic and ch...

Abstract Purification of astilbin from the rhizome extract of Smilax glabra was conducted using a high-speed counter-current chromatograph equipped with a 700 mL column. In a single operation, 1.5 g of crude sample was separated to yield 105 mg of component astilbin and 48 mg of isoastilbin while the upper phase of the two-phase solvent system composed of n -hexane– n -butanol–water (1:1:2, v/v/v) was used for stationary phase. The chemical structures of the two flavonoid glycosides were confirm...

Abstract Four Mexican Nymphaea species, N. ampla, N. pulchella, N. gracilis and N. elegans belonging to subgenera Brachyceras were analyzed. In this work two 5-glycosyl isoflavones, 7,3′,4′-trihydroxy-5-O-β- d -(2″-acetyl)-xylopyranosylisoflavone (1) and 7,3′,4′-trihydroxy-5-O-α- l -rhamnopyranosylisoflavone (2), were isolated from N. ampla and N. pulchella, respectively, together with other known 3-glycosyl flavones and triterpene saponins from the same four species. The structures were elucida...

The methanolic extract from the stems of Erycibe expansa was found to show a hepatoprotective effect on D-galactosamine-induced cytotoxicity in primary cultured mouse hepatocytes. By bioassay-guided separation, two new prenylisoflavones and a pterocarpane, erycibenins A (1), B (2), and C (3), were isolated from the active fraction (the EtOAc-soluble fraction) together with ten isoflavones (4-13) and seven pterocarpanes (14-20). The stereostructures of the new compounds were determined on the bas...

Abstract Anthocyanins are naturally occurring flavonoids derived from the phenylpropanoid pathway. There is increasing evidence of the preventative and protective roles of anthocyanins against a broad range of pathologies, including different cancer types and metabolic diseases. However, most of the fresh produce available to consumers typically contains only small amounts of anthocyanins, mostly limited to the epidermis of plant organs. Therefore, transgenic and non-transgenic approaches have b...

Abstract Wild soybeans are naturally found in China, and the Korean Peninsula, Japanese archipelago and Russian Far East, which are considered their centres of diversity. The presence of higher amounts of secondary metabolites in wild soybeans makes them the ideal choice to increase soyisoflavone content in cultivated soybeans through modern breeding and biotechnological techniques. Such a superiority calls for soyisoflavone profiling of germplasm resources. The soyisoflavone diversity of 298 wi...

: Plant domestication can modify and weaken defensive chemical traits, reducing chemical defenses in plants and consequently their resistance against pests. We characterized and quantified the major defensive flavonols and isoflavonoids present in both wild and cultivated murtilla plants (Ugni molinae Turcz), established in a common garden. We examined their effects on the larvae of Chilesia rudis (Butler) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae). Insect community and diversity indices were also evaluated. We h...

Abstract Iridaceae, the Iris family, is well-known for its magnificent flowers which come in a breathtaking array of colors. Iridaceae is widely used by several cultures as food, condiment or medicinal plants. Members of this family were investigated over the past decades for their chemical composition and pharmacological properties. Iris, Gladiolus and Belamcanda are among the most popular genera of this family. Other well-known genera include Moraea, Eleutherine and Cipura. Numerous novel comp...

ABSTRACTNatural organic compounds such as phytoestrogens and phytosterols found in various plants, as well as mycotoxins produced by fungi, can be found in aquatic environments. The aim of this study was to investigate the occurrence of three different classes of natural estrogenic compounds, i.e., phytoestrogens, phytosterols and mycotoxins, in estuarine water samples from the Ave River estuary. For that, water samples were collected at five sampling points distributed along the estuary at low ...

Many studies demonstrated the presence of diverse environmental contaminants in the Douro River estuary, such as natural and synthetic estrogens, pharmaceuticals, industrial compounds and pesticides. This estuary is located between two densely populated cities and is highly impacted due to anthropogenic activities, such as industry and agriculture. Although the presence of mycotoxins and phytoestrogens, such as lignans and coumestrans, in the aquatic environment is reported by some authors, thei...

Isoflavones are commonly consumed in many Asian countries and have potentially positive effects on human being. Only a few and rather controversial data on their interactions with copper and iron are available to date. 13 structurally related isoflavones were tested in the competitive manner for their Cu/Fe-chelating/reducing properties. Notwithstanding the 5-hydroxy-4-keto chelation site was associated with ferric, ferrous, and cupric chelation, the chelation potential of isoflavones was low an...
