The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of three dibenzylbutyrolactone lignans, (-)-hinokinin (2), (-)-6,6'-dinitrohinokinin (3), and (-)-6,6'-diaminohinokinin (4), obtained by partial synthesis from (-)-cubebin (1), were investigated using different animal models. It was observed that compounds (1) and (2) inhibited the edema formation in the rat paw(More)
Sesame oil is widely consumed as nutritious food, cooking oil, and in pharmaceuticals and food. In this study, the antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory properties of the sesame oil and sesamin were investigated. The sesame oil and sesamin reduced the number of abdominal contortions at the doses 100, 200, or 400 mg/kg. The first and second phases of the(More)
The structures of three benzylidenebenzyl butyrolactone lignans (gossypifan, carthamogenin, and savinin) have been established on basis of 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopic data. The 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectra of these lignans have been fully assigned by the use of techniques such as gCOSY, non-edited gHSQC, and gHMBC. Complete assignment and most(More)
