The MeOH extract of the aerial parts of Croton ruizianus afforded two new pregnane glycosides 1 and 2, together with the morphinandienone alkaloids flavinantine (3) and O-methylflavinantine (4). Their structures were elucidated by NMR experiments including 1H-1H (1D TOCSY and 2D DQF-COSY) and 1H-13C (HSQC, HMBC) spectroscopy. The proaggregating activity of(More)
A new cyclohexenone (1) and a new caffeoyl ester derivative (2), together with the known compounds (-)-isolariciresinol 3-alpha-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (3), (+)-1-hydroxypinoresinol 1-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (4), isoacteoside (5), luteolin 4'-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (6), and indole-3-carboxylic acid (7), were isolated from the leaves of Bauhinia(More)
8-Carboxymethyl-1,6-dihydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyxanthone, 8-carboxymethyl-1,5,6-trihydroxy-3-methoxyxanthone and 8-carboxymethyl-1,3,5,6-tetrahydroxyxanthone were isolated from the capitula of Leiothrix curvifolia and Leiothrix flavescens and characterized by spectroscopic methods, mainly 1D and 2D NMR experiments, as well as by electrospray mass spectrometry.(More)
The antimicrobial activity of a methanol extract and isolated constituents of Mitracarpus scaber, a species used in folk medicine by West African native people, was evaluated against Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans strains. The mitracarpus methanol extract possesses both antibacterial and antimycotic activities (minimum inhibitory(More)
Sixteen novel and ten known galactolipids have been isolated and characterized from the leaves of Ipomoea batatas L. (sweet potato) using an analytical method based on high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization-quadrupole time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry. Using this technique, the structures and regiochemistries of(More)
Four cycloartane glycosides, 3-O-[alpha-l-arabinopyranosyl-(1-->2)-beta-d-xylopyranosyl]-3beta,6alpha,16beta,23alpha,25-pentahydroxy-20(R),24(S)-epoxycycloartane (1), 3-O-[alpha-l-arabinopyranosyl-(1-->2)-beta-d-xylopyranosyl]-16-O-hydroxyacetoxy-23-O-acetoxy-3beta,6alpha,25-trihydroxy-20(R),24(S)-epoxycycloartane (2),(More)
A reinvestigation of the bark of Uncaria tomentosa afforded, in addition to the major quinovic acid glycosides 1-3, three further glycosides 4-6. The structures were elucidated by spectral and chemical studies. Furthermore, a series of antiviral tests were performed on all these glycosides and on the related glycosides 7-9, previously isolated from(More)
Bioassay-directed fractionation of the anti-inflammatory extracts of Uncaria tomentosa, using the carrageenan-induced edema in rat paw, has led to the isolation of a new quinovic acid glycoside 7 as one of the active principles. Furthermore, a new triterpene 8 was isolated as its methyl ester. The structures were elucidated by spectral and chemical studies.
