The low-energy collision-induced dissociation of protonated flavonoid O-diglycosides, i.e., flavonoid O-rutinosides and O-neohesperidosides, containing different aglycone types has been studied. The results indicate that the unusual [M + H - 162]+ ion formed by internal glucose residue loss, which in a previous study was shown to be a rearrangement ion, is(More)
A bioassay-guided fractionation of the 80 % ethanolic extract from Bocconia frutescens L. roots, showing a dose-dependent inhibitory effect towards both [(3)H]-angiotensin II and [(3)H]-BQ-123 binding to the human angiotensin II AT 1 and endothelin 1 ET(A) receptors, led to an alkaloidal subfraction as the only responsible fraction for the activity of the(More)
On the basis of the original lead neocryptolepine or 5-methyl-5H-indolo[2,3-b]quinoline, an alkaloid from Cryptolepis sanguinolenta, derivatives were prepared using a biradical cyclization methodology. Starting from easily accessible educts, this approach allowed the synthesis of hitherto unknown compounds with a varied substitution pattern. As a result of(More)
In addition to the known sterols and ketosteroids beta-sitosterol (24 alpha-ethylcholest-5-en-3 beta-ol), stigmasterol (24 alpha-ethylcholesta-5,22-dien-3 beta-ol), campesterol (24 alpha-methylcholest-5-en-3 beta-ol), beta-sitostenone (stigmast-4-en-3-one, 24 alpha-ethylcholest-4-en-3-one), stigmastenone (stigmasta-4,22-dien-3-one, 24(More)
Use of traditional herbal remedies is common in Africa, and many patients who visit traditional healers do not need to resort to Western medicine. Acute renal failure is one of the most serious complications resulting from the use of traditional remedies, however, which accounts for 35% of all cases of acute renal failure in Africa. Traditional remedies(More)
Six new homologous triterpenoid saponins were isolated from the methanol extract of the leaves of Maesa lanceolata and characterized as 3 beta-O-[alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl(1 --> 2)-beta-D-galactopyranosyl (1 --> 3)]-[beta-D-galactopyranosyl(1 --> 2)]-beta-D-glucuronopyranosides alpha-diol, 22 alpha-angeloyloxy-16 alpha-butanoyloxy-13 beta,28-oxydoolean-21(More)
Morinda morindoides (Baker) Milne-Redhead (syn. Gaertnera morindoides Bak.) is one of the most popular medicinal plants in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In relation to its traditional use against rheumatic pains, fractionation of both the EtOAc- and the n-BuOH-soluble fraction of the 80% MeOH extract of the leaves, guided by the anticomplementary(More)
Tandem mass spectrometric methods have been evaluated for the characterisation of the type and the differentiation of the interglycosidic linkage of isomeric flavonoid O-diglycosides. Based on the occurrence of internal monosaccharide residue loss and the relative abundances of Y-type ions formed by fragmentation at glycosidic bonds, four pairs of isomeric(More)
The four major C-glycosidic flavonoids isolated from Passiflora incarnata were identified as schaftoside, isoschaftoside, isovetexin-2''-O-glucopyranoside and isoorientin-2''-O-glucopyranoside on the basis of mass spectral and 13C NMR data. The daughter ion spectra of [M + H]+ ions of schaftoside and isoschaftoside showed differences for the [M + H - 104]+(More)
Four aglycons (tomatidine, demissidine, solanidine, and solasodine) and three glycoalkaloids (α-tomatine, α-chaconine, and α-solanine) have been analyzed by positive ion liquid secondary ion high-energy and low-energy collision-induced dissociation (CID) tandem mass Spectrometry, performed on a four-sector (EBEB) and a hybrid (EBQQ) instrument,(More)
