Three new anthraquinones, 1-methyl-2,4-dimethoxy-3-hydroxyanthraquinone (6), 1-methoxy-3-hydroxy-2-ethoxymethylanthraquinone (7), and 2-methyl-3-O-β-D-primeveroside (14), together with 15 known compounds, including seven anthraquinones, one iridoid glucoside, three phenolic compounds, three flavone glucosides, and one flavone, were isolated from Paederia scandens. The isolated compounds were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic methods. To the best of our knowledge, six known anthraquinones (1, 2, 5, 9, 10, and 13) and two known phenolic acids (4, 11) were isolated from this plant for the first time.

Two new anthraquinones, alataquinones A and B (1 and 2), together with two known anthraquinones (3 and 4), were isolated from the barks of Cassia alata. Their structures were determined by means of HR-ESI-MS and extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic studies. Compounds 1–4 were tested for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (anti-TMV) activity. The results showed that compounds 1–4 exhibited moderate anti-TMV activity with inhibition rates in the range of 22.8–26.4%.

Paederia scandens (Lour.) Merr. is a plant of the family Rubiaceae and genus Paederia. The aerial parts can be used as folk medicine for the treatment of pain and inflammation. The Chinese Pharmacopoeia (1977 edition) listed P. scandens as an official drug. Flavonoids 1 , iridoids 2, 3 , and triterpene saponins 4 were isolated in previous phytochemical studies of the plant. Recently, we have systematically investigated the chemical constituents of the aerial parts. This study was carried out wit...

Pentas micrantha is used in the East African indigenous medicine to treat malaria. In the first investigation of this plant, the crude methanol root extract showed moderate antiplasmodial activity against the W2- (3.37 μg/mL) and D6-strains (4.00 μg/mL) of Plasmodium falciparum and low cytotoxicity (>450 μg/mL, MCF-7 cell line). Chromatographic separation of the extract yielded nine anthraquinones, of which 5,6-dihydroxylucidin-11-O- methyl ether is new. Isolation of a munjistin derivative from ...

Roots of Morinda citrifolia (Noni or Yor in Thai) have been used traditionally for thousands of years to treat chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. In this study, three new anthraquinones together with 15 known compounds were isolated from the roots of M. citrifolia (Rubiaceae). Their structures were established by spectroscopic methods, particularly 1D and 2D NMR techniques. Six known compounds, together with two new compounds (2 and 3) showed significant inhibitory effects on the...

Nigrosporanenes A (1) and B (2), two new cylohexene derivatives, and tyrosol (3) were isolated from the sea fan-derived fungus Nigrospora sp. PSU-F11, whereas five known compounds: 4-hydroxybenzoic acid (4), aplysiopsene D (5), 3-isochromanone (6), (−)-drimenin (7) and diketopiperazine derivative (8), were obtained from the fungus Nigrospora sp. PSU-F12. Their structures were established by spectroscopic evidence. We also tested their cytotoxic (on African green monkey kidney fibroblast and brea...

Bioactivity-guided fractionation led to the successful isolation of antiosteoporotic components, i.e. physicion (1), rubiadin-1-methyl ether (2), 2-hydroxy-1-methoxy- anthraquinone (3), 1,2-dihydroxy-3-methylanthraquinone (4), 1,3,8-trihydroxy-2-methoxy- anthraquinone (5), 2-hydroxymethyl-3-hydroxyanthraquinone (6), 2-methoxyanthraquinone (7) and scopoletin (8) from an ethanolic extract of the roots of Morinda officinalis. Compounds 4-8 are isolated for the first time from M. officinalis. Among ...

From the aerial parts of Galium tortumense Ehrend & Schonb.-Tem., 8 iridoid glycosides, a flavonol glycoside, a oleanane-type triterpene acid, an ursan-type triterpene acid and a sterol were isolated. The structures of the compounds were elucidated by high field 1D and 2D NMR and EIMS spectroscopies.

Abstract The growth-inhibiting activity of Tabebuia impetiginosa Martius ex DC dried inner bark-derived constituents against Helicobacter pylori ATCC 43504 was examined using paper disc diffusion and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) bioassays. The activity of the isolated compounds was compared to that of the commercially available anti- Helicobacter pylori agents, amoxicillin, metronidazole, and tetracycline. The biologically active components of Tabebuia impetiginosa dried inner bark (ta...

Anthraquinones (ANQs) isolated from Paederia plants are known to have antidiarrheal, antitussive, anthelmintic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antihyperlipidemic, antihyperglycaemic, and antimicrobial activities. The antioxidant properties were also noted but not confirmed thus far. In this study, the superoxide and hydroperoxide radical scavenging activities of six ANQs were evaluated using a computational approach. The results suggest that the ANQs exhibit low HOO• antiradical activity in all e...
