Astragalus membranaceus is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) belonging to the Leguminosae family. It has been used as antidiabetic, cardioprotective, and hepatoprotective in the TCM clinic. From the stems of A. membranaceus (Fisch.) Bge. var. mongholicus (Bge.) Hsiao, 14 oleanane type saponins (1-14) including eight new ones, astroolesaponins A (1), B(More)
Sixteen flavonoids (1-16) including two new ones, named officinoflavonosides A (1) and B (2) were obtained from the aerial parts of Rosmarinus officinalis. Among the known ones, 6, 10, and 13 were isolated from the rosmarinus genus for the first time. Their structures were elucidated by chemical and spectroscopic methods. Moreover, the effects on sodium(More)
Five new compounds, gentixanthones A1 (1), A2 (2), and gentichromones A1-A3 (3-5), together with thirteen known xanthones (6-18) were obtained from the whole plants of Gentianella acuta (Michx.) Hulten. Their structures were elucidated by chemical and spectroscopic methods. Among them, compounds 6, 8, 13, 14, and 17 were obtained from Gentianella genus(More)
Twelve cyclolanstane-type saponins including six new ones, astrolanosaponins A1 (1), A2 (2), B (3), C (4), D (5), and E (6) were obtained from the stem of Astragalus membranaceus (Fisch.) Bge. var. mongholicus (Bge.) Hsiao, and their structures were elucidated by chemical and spectroscopic methods. Of the known ones, cycloastragenol-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside(More)
As a Mongolian native medicine and Ewenki folk medicinal plant, Gentianella acuta has been widely used for the treatment of diarrhea, hepatitis, arrhythmia, and coronary heart disease. In the course of investigating efficacy compounds to treat diarrhea using a mouse isolated intestine tissue model, we found 70% EtOH extract of G. acuta whole plants had an(More)
Eight new compounds, dioscorosides G (1), H1 (2), H2 (3), dioscorol B (4), dioscorosides I (5), J (6), K1 (7), and K2 (8), together with twelve known ones (9-20) were obtained from the rhizomes of Dioscorea septemloba. Their structures were elucidated by chemical and spectroscopic methods. Among the known isolates, 12-14, 18, and 20 were isolated from the(More)
The 70% ethanol extract of Dioscorea septemloba rhizomes was subjected to chromatographic columns including silica gel, ODS, D101 resin, Sephadex LH-20 and HPLC, to yield three new diarylheptanoids (1-3) and two novel stilbenes (4 and 5), together with six known ones (6-11). Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive 1D NMR (1H and 13C), 2D(More)
Four new aromatic constituents, astraflavonoids A (1), B (2), C (3), and astramemoside A (4), along with sixteen known ones 5-20 were obtained from the stems of A. membranaceus (Fisch.) Bge. var. mongholicus (Bge.) Hsiao. Their structures were elucidated by chemical and spectroscopic methods. Among the known isolates, 14 was obtained from the Astragalus(More)
Dammarane-type triterpenoids (DTT) widely distribute in various medicinal plants. They have generated a great amount of interest in the field of new drug research and development. Generally, DTT are the main bioactive ingredients abundant in Araliaceae plants, such as Panax ginseng, P. japonicas, P. notoginseng, and P. quinquefolium. Aside from Araliaceae,(More)
Three new compounds, apetalumosides C₁ (1), D (2), and 1-thio--d-glucopyranosyl(1→1)-1-thio-α-d-glucopyranoside (3), together with twenty-two known ones (4-25) were obtained from the seeds of Lepidium apetalum Willd. Among the known isolates, 5-8, 10-13, 16-20, and 25 were obtained from the genus for the first time; 4, 14, 15, and 21-24 were isolated from(More)
