In continuation of our interest towards the elucidation of apoptotic pathways of cytotoxic phytocompounds, we have embarked upon a study on the anticancer effects of 7α-hydroxy-β-sitosterol (CT1), a rare natural phytosterol oxide isolated from Chisocheton tomentosus. CT1 was found to be cytotoxic on three different human tumor cell lines with minimal(More)
Pseuduvarines A (1) and B (2), two new dioxoaporphine alkaloids with an amino moiety, were isolated from the stem bark of Pseuduvaria rugosa and their structures were elucidated by combination of 2D-NMR spectroscopic analysis. Pseuduvarines A (1) and B (2) showed cytotoxicity against MCF7, HepG2, and HL-60 (1: IC₅₀, 0.9, 21.7, and >50.0 µM, respectively, 2:(More)
Three new limonoids, chisomicines A-C (1-3), have been isolated from the bark of Chisocheton ceramicus. Their structures were determined by 2D NMR, CD spectroscopic methods, and X-ray analysis. Chisomicine A (1) exhibited NO production inhibitory activity in J774.1 cells stimulated by LPS dose-dependently at high cell viability.
Both independent mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(11)H(10)O(4), are almost planar (r.m.s. deviations = 0.011 and 0.033 Å). In both mol-ecules, the hy-droxy group is intra-molecularly hydrogen bonded to the ketonic O atom. The independent mol-ecules are stacked alternately along the a axis, with the centroids of their chromene ring(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(29)H(50)O(2), contains two mol-ecules; one mol-ecule is linked to the other by two O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, whereas only one of the hydr-oxy groups of the second mol-ecule is involved in hydrogen bonding. This gives rise to a chain that runs along the a axis of the monoclinic unit cell.
The title limonoid 14-de-oxyxyloccensin K, C(27)H(34)O(7), isolated from Chisocheton ceramicus (Meliaceae), features an oxygen linkage between carbon-3 and carbon-8 along with a tetra-hydro-furyl sub-unit. The six-membered rings adopt chair configurations and the tetra-hydro-furyl sub-unit has an envelope shape.
