Chemical investigation of ethyl acetate extract of the fruits of Diploclisia glaucescens of the family Menispermaceae furnished a new ecdysteroid 2-deoxy-5beta,20-dihydroxyecdysone, together with 20-hydroxyecdysone, 3-deoxy-1beta,20-dihydroxyecdysone, 2-deoxy-20-hydroxyecdysone, 24-ethyl-20-hydroxyecdysone (makisterone C). Latter two ecdysteroids are(More)
Analysis of the sterol fraction obtained from the Colombian Caribbean sponge Topsentia ophiraphidites revealed that this sponge is a rich source of C30 and C31 sterols. Among them, a new C31 sterol, named ophirasterol, was isolated, and its structure was established as (22E,24R)-24-(1-buten-2-yl)cholesta-5,22-dien-3beta-ol (1) by spectral means and(More)
