OBJECTIVE Vitamin D receptor (VDR) has been proposed as a candidate gene for susceptibility to Parkinson's disease (PD). This study was set to assess the association between VDR gene Apa I and Taq I polymorphisms and PD in a Chinese Han population. METHODS Two hundred and eighty five sporadic PD patients and 285 healthy controls were genotyped for the Apa(More)
A new cytotoxic roridin-type trichothecene macrolide named epiroridin acid (1) and two known compounds epiroridin E (2) and mytoxin B (3) were isolated from the liquid culture of Myrothecium roridum A553, which was isolated from the medicinal plant Pogostemon cablin. The structure of the new macrolide (1) was elucidated by extensive spectroscopic(More)
Three new diketopiperazines, dichotocejpins A-C (1-3), together with eight known analogues (4-11), were isolated from the culture of the deep-sea sediment derived fungus Dichotomomyces cejpii FS110. Their structures, including absolute configurations, were elucidated by a combination of HRESIMS, NMR, X-ray crystallography, and ECD calculations. Compounds(More)
Four new meroterpenoids, guignardones P-S (1-4), and three known analogues (5-7) were isolated from the endophytic fungal strain Guignardia mangiferae A348. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and single crystal X-ray diffraction. All the isolated compounds were evaluated for their inhibitory effects on SF-268, MCF-7, and(More)
Chemical examination of the liquid culture of Endomelanconiopsis endophytica A326 isolated from the Chinese folk medicine Ficus hirta resulted in the isolation of two new xyloketals named xyloketals K and L (1-2) and three known analogs (3-5) including a new natural product (5). Their structures were determined on the basis of extensive spectroscopic(More)
Chemical investigation of the liquid culture of the endophytic fungus Bipolaris sorokiniana A606, which was isolated from the medicinal plant Pogostemon cablin resulted in the isolation of four new cytotoxic compounds, named isocochlioquinones D-E (1-2) and cochlioquinones G-H (3-4), along with five known cochlioquinone analogues (5-9). Their structures(More)
Cytosporaphenones A-C, one new polyhydric benzophenone and two new naphtopyrone derivatives, along with eight known ones, were isolated from Cytospora rhizophorae, an endophytic fungus from Morinda officinalis. Their structures were fully characterized by means of detailed spectroscopic analysis and X-ray single crystal diffraction. To our knowledge, the(More)
Phytochemical study on the leaves of Rhodomyrtus tomentosa resulted in the isolation of fourteen compounds including a new acylphloroglucinol, named tomentosone C (1), and a new flavonol glycoside, namely myricetin-3,7,3'-trimethyl ether-5'-O-β-glucopyranoside (2). Their structures were characterized by spectral data interpretation for new structures and in(More)
Callviminols A-E (1-5), five rare phloroglucinols bearing a framework embodying a hexahydrodibenzo[b,d]furan or 2-phenylcyclohexanol nucleus derived from a phloroglucinol-monoterpene adduct, were isolated from the leaves of Callistemon viminalis. Their structures were established via extensive spectroscopic measurements, with the absolute configuration of 5(More)
A phytochemical study on the leaves of Callistemon viminalis, a widely distributed ornamental and medicinal plant of agricultural importance in China, resulted in the isolation of eleven acylphloroglucinols, including six new ones named callistenones F-K (1-6), as well as five known congeners. Their structures were fully characterized using spectral data(More)
