The chalcone skeleton (1,3-diphenyl-2-propen-1-one) is a unique template that is associated with various biological activities. We synthesized Mannich bases of heterocyclic chalcones (9-47) using a one-step Claisen-Schmidt condensation of heterocyclic aldehydes with Mannich bases of acetophenones, and tested the target compounds for cytotoxicity against(More)
Some chalcones exert potent anti-inflammatory activities. Mannich bases of heterocyclic chalcones inhibited nitric oxide (NO) production in lipopolysaccharide and interferon-γ stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages. Also Formyl-Met-Leu-Phe and cytochalasin B induced superoxide anion generation (O2·-) and elastase release in human neutrophils. Mannich bases of(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the CHCl(3) soluble portion of the roots of Panax japonicus C. A. Meyer var. major afforded an active fraction with inhibitory activity against baker's yeast alpha-glucosidase with an IC(50) value 1.02 mg/mL. Furthermore, the active fraction isolated contained three previously unreported polyacetylenes, designated(More)
Reactive oxygen species and granule proteases produced by neutrophils contribute to the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases. The extracts of the roots and the leaves of Salvia nipponica var. formosana were showed potent inhibitory effects on superoxide anion production in fMLP/CB-activated human neutrophils as well as other anti-inflammatory effects, and(More)
A series of novel bichalcone analogs were synthesized and evaluated in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated microglial cells as inhibitors of nitric oxide (NO) and for in vitro anticancer activity using a limited panel of four human cancer cell lines. All analogs inhibited NO production. Compounds 4 and 11 exhibited optimal activity with IC(50) values of 0.3(More)
Two new saponins, panajaponol (1) and pseudoginsenoside RT1 butyl ester (2), together with 35 known compounds (3-37), were isolated from the roots of Panax japonicus var. major. The structures of 1 and 2 were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and chemical methods. Furthermore, a LC-MS/MS method was developed for confirming 2, 3, and 8 as(More)
