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. 2006 Elsevier Ltd.

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...

Sarcolobus globosus is a medicinal plant growing in mangrove forests in Asia. No constituents from this plant have been reported previously. From the diethyl ether extract of S. globosus a new rotenoid sarcolobin and a new isoflavone sarcolobone, as well as the previously known rotenoids tephrosin, 12aα-hydroxydeguelin, 11-hydroxytephrosin, 12a-hydroxyrotenone, 12aa-hydroxyrotenone, 6aα,12aα-12a-hydroxyelliptone, 6a,12a-dehydrodeguelin, 13-homo-13-oxa-6a,12a-dehydrodeguelin, the isoflavone barbi...

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...
