Ten minor new glycosidic constituents (1- 10), together with 10 known compounds, have been isolated from a neuroprotective fraction of an ethanolic extract of the tubers of Gymnadenia conopsea. The structures of 1-10 were determined using spectroscopic and chemical methods. The compounds isolated were evaluated for activity in in vitro assays for(More)
The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a Ser/Thr kinase. It plays an evolutionarily conserved role in regulating cell growth, proliferation, survival, and metabolism via different cellular processes. The purpose of this study was to explore the inhibitory effects of CCI-779 (temsirolimus), a specific mTOR inhibitor, on mTOR signaling, and examine the(More)
Seven new neolignan glycosides ( 1- 7), two arylglycerol glycosides ( 8, 9), and 18 known glycosides have been isolated from an ethanolic extract of the root of Iodes cirrhosa. Their structures including absolute configurations were determined by spectroscopic and chemical methods. Based on analysis of the NMR data of threo and erythro 8-4'-oxyneolignans(More)
Two novel tricyclic spirolactones bearing long linear alkyl chains, yaoshanenolides A (1) and B (2), formed by Diels-Alder[4 + 2] cycloaddition of a molecule of each butenolide with β-phellandrene, were isolated from the bark of Machilus yaoshansis. Their structures and absolute configurations were determined by extensive spectroscopic methods, especially(More)
BACKGROUND Shen-Fu decoction is a traditional Chinese medicine prescription with a 3:2 ratio of Radix Ginseng and Fuzi (Radix Aconiti lateralis praeparata). Ginsenosides and alkaloids are considered to be the main active components of Shen-Fu decoction. However, no analytical methods have been used to quantitatively analyse both components in Shen-Fu(More)
An HPLC method for the assay of the heat shock protein 90 inhibitor, PU-H71 (NSC 750424), has been developed and validated. The stress testing of PU-H71 was carried out in accordance with ICH guidelines Q1A (R2) under aqueous, acidic, alkaline, oxidative, thermolytic and photolytic conditions. The separation of PU-H71 from its impurities and degradation(More)
A norditerpene glucopyranoside with a novel carbon skeleton (1), eight new aromatic glycosides (2-9), and 25 known glycosides have been isolated from a H2O-soluble portion of an ethanolic extract of the stem bark of Fraxinus sieboldiana. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic and chemical methods. Based on analysis of the NMR data of threo- and(More)
Three pyridinium inner salt alkaloids, lonijaposides A-C (1-3), based on an unprecedented skeleton of an N-substituted nicotinic acid nucleus coupled through C-5 with C-7 of a secoiridoid, together with seven known iridoids, have been isolated from the flower buds of Lonicera japonica. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic and chemical analyses.(More)
Four new dimeric phenolic glycosides (1- 4), a new iridoid diglycoside (5), and 15 known glycosides have been isolated from an ethanolic extract of the bark of Adina polycephala. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic and chemical methods. Compounds 1, 3, and 5 showed in vitro inhibitory activity against the release of beta-glucuronidase in rat(More)
Nine new dammarane triterpene glycosides (1-3 and 8-13) and 12 known analogues have been isolated from an ethanol extract of the roots of Machilus yaoshansis. Compounds 1-7 have an uncommon 20,23-dihydroxydammar-24-en-21-oic acid-21,23-lactone moiety that was previously reported in compounds isolated from Gynostemma pentaphyllum. The configurations of the(More)
