Four new lanostane triterpenes, butyl ganoderate A (1), butyl ganoderate B (2), butyl lucidenate N (3), and butyl lucidenate A (4), were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Ganoderma lucidum together with 14 known compounds (5-18). The structures of the new triterpenes were established by extensive spectroscopic studies and chemical evidence. In addition,(More)
A methanol extract of the twigs of Cinnamomum cassia was found to possess inhibitory activity against tyrosinase. Purification of the MeOH extract afforded four new phenolics, cassiferaldehyde (6), icariside DC (9), cinnacassinol (10), and dihydrocinnacasside (13), together with 10 known compounds (1-5, 7-12, and 14). The structures of the new compounds(More)
The iridoid glycosides, genipin 1-O-beta-D-isomaltoside (1) and genipin 1,10-di-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (2), together with six known iridoid glycosides, genipin 1-O-beta-D-gentiobioside (3), geniposide (4), scandoside methyl ester (5), deacetylasperulosidic acid methyl ester (6), 6-O-methyldeacetylasperulosidic acid methyl ester (7), and gardenoside (8)(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE The root and stem of Vitis amurensis (Vitaceae) have popularly used as traditional medicine for treatment of cancer and various pains in Korea and Japan. Recent studies, its root and stem possess anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor activities, and protective effects against beta-amyloid-induced oxidative stress. AIM OF THE STUDY(More)
Two new lanostane triterpenes, methyl lucidenate N ( 1) and T-butyl lucidenate B ( 2), were isolated from the fruiting bodies of GANODERMA LUCIDUM together with five known compounds ( 3- 7). The structures of the two new triterpenes were established as methyl 3 β,7 β-dihydroxy-4,4,14 α-trimethyl-11,15-dioxo-5 α-chol-8-en-24-oate ( 1) and T-butyl 7 β,12(More)
Gardeniae Fructus is a traditional medicine used for the treatment of contusion such as ankle sprain. Geniposide is one of the main components of Gardeniae Fructus with diverse biological activities. In order to gain further insight into the therapeutic action of Gardeniae Fructus extract (GFE) and geniposide on ligament injuries, a new in vitro model was(More)
The objective of the present study was to elucidate the beneficial properties of ampelopsine B (1) and epsilon-Viniferin (2), two oligostilbenes isolated from rhubarb, toward cardiovascular disease by protecting human lipoproteins against lipid peroxidation. In low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation, both 1 and 2 exert an inhibitory activity against(More)
Cytotoxic bioassay-guided fractionation of methanol extract of Angelicae Sinensis Radix led to the isolation of a new dimeric Z-ligustilide, named neodiligustilide (1), together with three known compounds, Z-ligustilide (2), 11(S),16(R)-dihydroxy-octadeca-9Z, 17-dien-12,14-diyn-1-yl acetate (3), and 3(R),8(S)-falcarindiol (4). Among them, 2 showed the(More)
Two new lignans, 4-methoxymagnaldehyde B (1) and coumanolignan (2), were isolated from the stem bark of Magnolia obovata, together with 11 known compounds (3-13). The structures of compounds 1 and 2 were determined to be 5'-allyl-2'-hydroxyphenyl-4-methoxy-3-cinnamic aldehyde (1) and 6-allyl-8-(5'-allyl-2'-hydroxyphenyl)coumarin (2) on the basis of(More)
Four new biphenyl and biphenyl ether quinolizidine N-oxide alkaloids, 5- EPI-dihydrolyfoline N-oxide (1), decamine N-oxide (2), lagerstroemine N-oxide (3), and lagerine N-oxide (4), were isolated from the aerial parts of Lagerstroemia indica, and their structures were established by extensive spectroscopic studies. In addition, the inhibitory effects of(More)
