Twenty-seven new pregnane glycosides were isolated from the whole plant of Caralluma dalzielii, and their structures elucidated from extensive 2D NMR analysis as well as ESI-MS experiments. All isolated compounds were tested for their antiproliferative activity on J774.A1, HEK-293, and WEHI-164 cell lines. Moderate to high potency of cytotoxicities were(More)
Seven new 15-keto pregnane glycosides, namely Stemmosides E--K, were isolated from Solenostemma argel. Stemmosides E--J are characterized by the occurrence of an uncommon 14 beta proton configuration while stemmosides E and F possess in addition a rare enolic function in C-16. On the other hand, stemmosides G-J display an unusual C-17 alpha side chain.(More)
Four new bibenzyl derivatives were isolated, together with other known bibenzyls, by bioassay-guided fractionation of a CHCl₃-MeOH extract of Notholaena nivea Desv. (Pteridaceae) aerial parts. The structures were elucidated by NMR, ESIMS and other spectral analyses. Their antioxidative effects towards superoxide, lipidic peroxidation and the(More)
