New pregnane glycosides from Caralluma dalzielii
Antiproliferative triterpene saponins from Entada africana.
Nine new ester saponins (1-9) were isolated from the roots of Entada africana and their structures were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR experiments, as well as ESIMS analysis, and chemical methods.
Pregnane glycosides from Leptadenia pyrotechnica.
Compounds having deacethylmetaplexigenin as aglycon and a cinnamoyl ester moiety linked at C-12 were the most active constituents.
