Abstract In our investigation of the anti-hyperglycaemic constituents of Eugenia jambolana L. (Jamun), one new triterpenoid, 2-O-cis-p-coumaroyl maslinic acid, along with thirteen known triterpenoids were isolated from the fruit ethyl acetate extract. The structures of compounds 1–14 were elucidated on the basis of mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance analyses. Animal studies demonstrated that the triterpenoid-enriched Jamun fruit extract (TJFE) decreased blood glucose content in C57BL/6 mice (P

Abstract Background The World Health Organization (WHO) for some years has been focusing on what is now commonly referred to as an "epidemic of obesity and diabetes" ("diabesity"): behind this outbreak, there are several risk factors grouped in what is called "metabolic syndrome" (MetS). The basis of this "epidemic" is either a diet too often characterized by excessive consumption of saturated and trans-esterified fatty acids, simple sugars and salt, either a sedentary lifestyle. Purpose The aim...

Oleanolic (OA), ursolic (UA), and betulinic (BA) acids are three triterpenic acids (TAs) with potential effects for treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Mechanistic studies showed that these TAs act as hypoglycemic and antiobesity agents mainly through (i) reducing the absorption of glucose; (ii) decreasing endogenous glucose production; (iii) increasing insulin sensitivity; (iv) improving lipid homeostasis; and (v) promoting body weight regulation. Besides these promising beneficial effects, it...

Increased glucose production and reduced hepatic glycogen storage contribute to metabolic abnormalities in diabetes. Irisin, a newly identified myokine, induces the browning of white adipose tissue, but its effects on gluconeogenesis and glycogenesis are unknown. In the present study, we investigated the effects and underlying mechanisms of irisin on gluconeogenesis and glycogenesis in hepatocytes with insulin resistance, and its therapeutic role in type 2 diabetic mice. Insulin resistance was i...

Abstract Ziziphus jujuba Mill fruits are recognized as an outstanding source of biologically active compounds including triterpenic acids. In order to evaluate the triterpenic profile of these edible and little commercial fruits and to contribute to the improvement of their potential value as food, a quali-quantitative study along with biological assays were carried out. The phytochemical investigation of the triterpenic fraction yielded nine triterpenic acids, ceanothic acid (1), alphitolic aci...

Background: Triterpenes as betulinic (BA), oleanolic (OA) and ursolic acids (UA) have increasingly gained therapeutic relevance due to their wide scope of pharmacological activities. To fit large scale demands, exploitable sources of these compounds have to be found and simple, cost effective methods to extract them developed. Leaf material represents the best plant sustainable raw material. To obtain triterpene acid rich extracts from leaves of Eugenia , Psidium and Syzygium species ( Myrtaceae...

: Eugenia jambolana, commonly known as 'jamun' or Indian blackberry, is an important source of bioactive compounds. All parts of the plant like stem bark, leaves, flower, fruit pulp and seeds are traditionally used for many diseases. Metabolite profiling in medicinally important plants is critical to resolve the problems associated with standardization and quality control. Metabolite profiling of the fruit pulp of Jamun was performed by NMR, HPLC, MS, GC-MS and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. These...

Glucose uptake into insulin-sensitive tissues is important for the regulation of blood glucose. This study has investigated whether the pentacyclic triterpenoids substituted with a carboxylic acid at the C-27 position isolated from Astilbe rivularis can enhance glucose uptake and subsequently to also examine their underlying molecular mechanisms. The structure of the new pentacyclic triterpenoid 1 was assigned by spectroscopic data interpretation. To evaluate the activity of compounds 1 and 2, g...

Abstract The chemical composition and anti-hyperglycaemic effects of polyphenol-enriched Longan pericarp extracts (LPE) were investigated in the present study. The phenolic profile of LPE was determined by HPLC-DAD/MS analysis. Nine phenolics were identified, and of these, three major components were quantified by LC-MS/MS. Anti-hyperglycaemic assays demonstrate that LPE (polyphenol content ca. 37.8 g gallic acid equivalents/100 g) inhibit α-glucosidase (IC50 = 11.68 ± 0.44 µg/mL) in vitro and d...

Abstract null null Triterpenoids are hypoglycemic substances and flavor components of Momordica charantia L., whether their bitterness correlated with hypoglycemic potential remain unknown. Thus, triterpenoids in M. charantia were isolated by phytochemical methods and identified by spectroscopic analysis. The bitterness levels and hypoglycaemic activity of isolated triterpenoids were evaluated by electronic tongue and hepatic gluconeogenesis assay. Eighteen triterpenoids including two new ones, ...

Abstract Our present and previous phytochemical investigations on Leptopus lolonum have resulted in the isolation of almost 30 phenylpropanoid-conjugated pentacyclic triterpenoids (PCPTs). During the continuous study on PCPTs, this kind of triterpenoid ester is considered as a natural product with low toxicity because of it’s widely distribution in natural plants and edible fruits including kiwi fruit, durian, jujube, pawpaw, apple and pear. In the present work, we report the isolation, structur...

Triterpenoids, as an important family of plant secondary metabolites, have important biological activities associated with health and disease prevention. In this work, we proposed a HPLC-MS method for profiling multiple groups of triterpenoid acids and triterpenoid esters differing only in one position of the hydroxyl or methyl group in O. fragrans fruits. A total of thirty-one compounds were identified, and twenty-seven components were discovered in O. fragrans fruits for the first time. The HP...

Abstract Eugenia jambolana (EJ) is an Indian traditional herb widely used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. This herb is globally marketed as single or multi herb formulations. Many diabetes patients consume EJ extract oral hypoglycemic drugs together. This calls for a need to assess risks versus benefit of this co-administration. In present investigation, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic interactions of aqueous extract of EJ seeds at the dose of 400 mg/kg are studied with 10 mg/kg of o...
