OBJECTIVE To study the chemical constituents from leaves of Sapium sebiferum. METHOD The compounds were isolated and purified by silic gel column chromatography and preparative HPLC. The structures were identified by various spectral evidence. RESULT Nine compounds were obtained and they were shikimic acid (1), kaempferol (2), quercetin (3), isoquercein(More)
Seven new triterpenes, inonotusol A-G (1-7), one new diterpene, inonotusic acid (8), and 22 known compounds were isolated from Inonotus obliquus. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis, including homonuclear and heteronuclear correlation NMR ((1)H-(1)H COSY, ROESY, HSQC, and HMBC) experiments. In in vitro assays, compounds 6(More)
The 6-(4-alkoxycarbonylalkoxy)phenoxy-3-alkylthio(alkylsulfonyl)-1-phenyl-5-(substituted phenyl)pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-ones 6 and 7 have been synthesized via the tandem aza-Wittig and annulation reactions of the corresponding iminophosphoranes 4, aromatic isocyanates, and substituted phenols 2 in 52-98% yields. Their structures were clearly verified by(More)
Anthocyanin biosynthesis requires the activities of several enzymes in vivo. Flavanone 3-hydroxylase (F3H) converts flavanone into dihydroflavanol at an early step in the anthocyanin biosynthesis pathway. In this study we constructed an RNAi gene-silencing vector that encodes a hairpin F3H RNA. Agrobacterium strain GV3101 harboring the F3H RNAi vector was(More)
Six new Diels-Alder-type adducts, wittiorumins A-F ( 1 - 6) along with the three known compounds chalcomoracin ( 7), mulberrofuran J ( 8), and mongolicin F ( 9), were isolated from the stem bark of Morus wittiorum. Their structures including their absolute configurations were determined on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and chemical methods. Some of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the chemical constituents from the fruiting bodies of Ganoderma sinense Zhao, Xu et Zhang. METHOD To isolated the compounds by silica gel and sephadex LH -20 column chromatography and their structures were elucidate by means of spectral analysis. RESULT Six sterols, one fatty acid and one of diketopiperazines were obtained from CHCl3(More)
Three new 2-arylbenzofurans named wittifuran H, wittifuran I and wittifuran U (1-3) were obtained during our ongoing investigation of an ethanol extract from the stem bark of Morus wittiorum. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data. Compound 2 displayed potent anti-inflammatory activity and selective cytotoxicity against human(More)
Five new lanostane triterpenoids, ganoderic acid XL1 (1), ganoderic acid XL2 (2), 20-hydroxy-ganoderic acid AM1 (3), ganoderenic acid AM1 (4) and ganoderesin C (5), together with five known triterpenoids (6-10) were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Ganoderma theaecolum. Chemical structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic evidence,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the chemical constituents in the barks of Morus nigra. METHOD The nine compounds were isolated and purified by column chromatography over silica gel, LH -20 and preparative HPLC and their structures were identified by various spectroscopic methods. RESULT The nine compounds were isolated and identified as olcancolic acid ,(More)
Ten flavonoids were isolated from the 95% ethanol extract of the seeds of Alpinia galanga Willd. with a combination of various chromatographic techniques, including silica gel, Sephadex LH-20 and preparative HPLC. On the basis of spectroscopic data analysis, they were elucidated as (2R, 3S)-pinobaksin-3-cinnamate (1), (2R, 3R)-pinobaksin-3-cinnamate (2),(More)
