Xanthone derivatives: new insights in biological activities.
TLDR
In this review, an array of biological/pharmacological effects is presented for both natural and synthetic xanthone derivatives, with an emphasis on some significant studies on structure-activity relationships.
Cytotoxic activity of lupane-type triterpenes from Glochidion sphaerogynum and Glochidion eriocarpum two of which induce apoptosis.
TLDR
Triterpenes 2 - 7 were tested against the growth of three human tumor cell lines, MCF-7, NCI-H-460 and SF-268 and indicated that triterpenes 5 and 6 exerted their antiproliferative activity through the involvement of apoptosis while triterpene 3 did not.
Effect of abietane diterpenes from Plectranthus grandidentatus on the growth of human cancer cell lines.
TLDR
Five known abietane diterpenes, fatty acid esters of 7alpha-acyloxy-6beta-hydroxyroyleanone, and coleon U, isolated from Plectranthus grandidentatus Gürke, were evaluated for their in vitro antiproliferative activity against five human cancer cell lines.
Prenylated xanthones: antiproliferative effects and enhancement of the growth inhibitory action of 4-hydroxytamoxifen in estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer cell line
The effects of three prenylated xanthones on the in vitro growth of estrogen-dependent ER (+) MCF-7 (breast), estrogen-independent ER (−) MDA-MB-231 cells (breast), and NCI-H460 (non-small cell lung)
Catechols from abietic acid synthesis and evaluation as bioactive compounds.
Bioactive diterpenoids, a new jatrophane and two ent-abietanes, and other constituents from Euphorbia pubescens.
TLDR
Diterpenes 1-3 and previously described pubescene D were shown to be moderate inhibitors of the growth of MCF-7, NCI-H460, and SF-268 human tumor cell lines, whereas compounds 2 and 3 also exhibited significant antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus.
