Four cucurbitane glycosides, momordicosides Q, R, S, and T, and stereochemistry-established karaviloside XI, were isolated from the vegetable bitter melon (Momordica charantia). These compounds and their aglycones exhibited a number of biologic effects beneficial to diabetes and obesity. In both L6 myotubes and 3T3-L1 adipocytes, they stimulated GLUT4(More)
Protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) inhibitors represent emerging therapeutics for cancer chemoprevention. In our study, hematoxylin (26) was identified as one of the most remarkable c-Src inhibitors in an orthogonal compound-mixing library (32200 compounds) by using an ELISA-based automated high-throughput screening (HTS) strategy. Interestingly, hematoxylin was(More)
Fifteen limonoids, meliatoosenins E-S (1-15), and 10 known compounds were isolated from the fruits of Melia toosendan. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic methods including DEPT, HSQC, HMBC, (1)H-(1)H COSY, and ROESY experiments. All the compounds were evaluated for antiproliferative activity using A-549 and HL-60 cell(More)
Four new limonoids (1, 3, 4, 6), named meliatoosenins A-D, eight new euphane- and tirucallane-type triterpenoids (8-15), named meliasenins A-H, and 13 known compounds have been isolated from the stem bark of Melia toosendan. The structures of new compounds were established on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR experiments ((1)H-(1)H COSY, HSQC, HMBC, and ROESY).
Twelve dihydrostilbenes, stilbostemins N-Y (1-12), and a phenanthraquinone, stemanthraquinone (13), were isolated and identified from roots of Stemona tuberosa, along with five known dihydrostilbenes. Their structures were established on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR and other spectroscopic analyses. Dihydrostilbene 8 exhibited strong activity against Bacillus(More)
Three new coumarins containing a C(10) terpenoid side chain, clauslactones R - T (1 - 3), together with 14 known coumarins (4 - 17) and 11 known carbazole alkaloids (18 - 28), were isolated from the leaves and stems of Clausena excavata. Their structures were established by detailed spectroscopic analyses. Furthermore, the stereochemistry of 1 was confirmed(More)
Four new abietane diterpenoids, fortunins A-D (1-4), and six new 18-hydroxymethylene abietane diterpenoids, fortunins E-J (5-10), along with 12 known diterpenoids, were isolated from the bark of Cryptomeria fortunei. The structures of new compounds were established on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR and other spectroscopic analyses.
Two new bisbenzopyrans, namely 3,3'-bis(3,4-dihydro-4-hydroxy-6,8-dimethoxy-2H-1-benzopyran) (1), and 8'-methoxy-3,3'-bis(3,4-dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-methoxy-2H-1-benzopyran) (2), together with known 3,3'-bis(3,4-dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-methoxy-2H-1-benzopyran) (3), as well as three known pyrido[1,2-alpha]azapine alkaloids, stemokerrin (4), oxystemokerrin (5) and(More)
A new polyoxypregnane aglycone, tenacigenin D (1), and seven new C21 steroid glycosides, tenacissimosides D-J (2-8), were isolated from the stems of Marsdenia tenacissima. Their structures were determined by interpretation of their 1D and 2D NMR and other spectroscopic data, as well as by comparison with published values for related known compounds.(More)
