We report 15 new avian influenza virus A/H5N1 haemagglutinin (HA) sequences sampled from visibly sick domestic poultry in southern Vietnam, between 1 January 2010 and 6 March 2010. These HA sequences form a new sub-clade of the clade 1 H5N1 viruses that have been circulating in Vietnam since 2003/2004. The viruses are characterized by a change from(More)
Nine new chromonylthiazolidine derivatives were successfully semi-synthesized from paeonol. All of the compounds, including starting materials, the intermediate compound and products, were evaluated for their cytotoxic effects toward eight human cancer cell lines. The synthesized chromonylthiazolidines displayed weak cytotoxic effects against the tested(More)
Using combined chromatographic methods, two asterosaponins (compounds 1 and 2), including a new compound novaeguinoside E (compound 1), and six glycosylated polyhydroxysteroids (compounds 3-8) were isolated from a methanol extract of the starfish Culcita novaeguineae. Their structures were determined on the basis of spectroscopic data ((1)H and (13)C NMR,(More)
The paper presents the synthesis of new artemisinin triazole derivatives via click chemistry and their in vitro cytotoxic evaluation against four cancer cell lines including MCF-7, LU-1, HL-60 and P388. The bioassay result showed that most of the target compounds were active against four cell lines, in which compounds 11g displayed the most potent(More)
Various chromatographic separations of the aerial parts of Scutellaria barbata afforded two new neoclerodane diterpenoids, scutebatas S and T (1 and 2), along with scutebata D (3). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, 1D and 2D NMR and comparison with the literature(More)
A series of novel hydroxamic acids bearing artemisinin skeleton was designed and synthesized. Some compounds in this series exhibited moderate inhibition against the whole cell HDAC enzymes. Especially, compound 6g displayed potent cytotoxicity against three human cancer cell lines, including HepG2 (liver cancer), MCF-7 (breast cancer) and HL-60 (leukemia(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the antitumor effect of maesopsin 4-O-β-glucoside (TAT2) isolated from the leaves of Artocarpus tonkinensis (A. tonkinensis) A. Chev. ex Gagnep. METHODS The antitumor activity of TAT2 was evaluated in Lewis lung carcinoma (LLC) tumor-bearing mice. BALB/c mice had tumors induced by implantation with 2 × 10(6) LLC cells into the(More)
Nine secondary metabolites, including a new cycloartane glucoside, rhizostyloside (1), were isolated from a methanol extract of Rhizophora stylosa leaves through several chromatographic experiments. The structures of the compounds were determined on the basis of NMR spectroscopic (1H and 13C NMR, HSQC, HMBC, 1H-1H COSY, NOESY) and HR-ESI-MS data and by(More)
Using combined chromatographic separations, two new steroid glycosides namely pentacerosides A (1) and B (2), and four known compounds were isolated from the methanol extract of the starfish Pentaceraster gracilis. Their structures were determined on the basis of spectroscopic data (1H and 13C NMR, HSQC, HMBC, 1H-1H COSY, ROESY, and FT-ICR-MS) and by(More)
BACKGROUND So far, the anticancer action of pine tree extracts has mainly been shown for the species distributed widely around the Asian countries. OBJECTIVE Therefore, this study was performed to examine the potential cytotoxicity of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) native also to the European region and growing widely in Estonia.
