Parallel reductions in phenolic constituents resulting from the domestication of eggplant.
Crop domestication is often accompanied by changes in metabolite compositions that alter traits such as flavor, color, or other beneficial properties. Fruits of eggplants (Solanum melongena L.) andExpand
Neolignans and Caffeoyl Derivatives from Selaginella moellendorffii
Ten new phenolic compounds including the six neolignans 1-3 and 6-8 and four caffeoyl derivatives, i.e., myo-inositol 1-caffeate (9), myo-inositol 6-caffeate (10), myo-inositol 5-caffeate (11), andExpand
Pyrrolidinoindoline alkaloids from Selaginella moellendorfii.
Eight new pyrrolidinoindoline alkaloids were isolated from the whole plant of Selaginella moellendorfii and selected compounds were evaluated for antibacterial, cytotoxic, and acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activities. Expand
Acetylcholineestarase-Inhibiting Alkaloids from Lycoris radiata Delay Paralysis of Amyloid Beta-Expressing Transgenic C. elegans CL4176
Lycoris compounds may modulate inflammatory and stress-related gene expressions to combat the Aβ-toxicity in C. elegans and effectively delay the paralysis of CL4176 worms upon temperature up-shift, and prolong the lives of these transgenic worms. Expand
Clerodane diterpenoids and prenylated flavonoids from Dodonaea viscosa
Two new modified clerodanes and two new prenylated flavonoids are isolated from Dodonaea viscosa and evaluated on larvicidal activity against the fourth-instar larvae of Aedes albopictus and Culex pipens quinquefasciatus. Expand
A piperidine alkaloid and limonoids from Arisaema decipiens, a traditional antitumor herb used by the dong people
A new piperidine alkaloid and three known tetranortriterpenoids were isolated from the methanol extracts of the rhizomes of Arisaema decipiens Schott (Araceae) and their chemical structures wereExpand
Acylated iridoid glycosides and acylated rhamnopyranoses from Gmelina arborea flowers
Nine acylated iridoid glycosides (1-9), five acylated rhamnopyranoses (10-14) and verbascoside (15) were isolated from Gmelina arborea flowers, including 5 new compounds (1, 2, and 10-12). TheExpand
Sesquiterpenoids from Pilea cavaleriei subsp. crenata.
Three new humulane-type sesquiterpenes, 8-O-(p-coumaroyl)-5beta-hydroperoxy-1(10)E,4(15)-humuladien-8alpha-ol (1), 8-O-(3-nitro-p-coumaroyl)-1(10)E,4(15)-humuladien-5beta,8alpha-diol (2) andExpand
ESI LC-MS and MS/MS Characterization of Antifungal Cyclic Lipopeptides Produced by Bacillus subtilis XF-1
The diversity of the fengycins that exist in this strain will help the elucidation of their biocontrol mechanisms. Expand
Bioactive isoquinoline alkaloids from Corydalis saxicola.
Structural-activity studies demonstrated that the nitro substituents at ring A in the tetrahydroprotoberberines led to an increase in the anti-acetylcholinesterase activity. Expand
