A new phytoalexin was induced and isolated from papaya fruit slices treated with copper salts; its structure was established as 3',5'-dimethoxy-4'-hydroxy-(2-hydroxy)acetophenone. This compound showed high antifungal activity against Colletotrichum gloesporioides, a pathogenic fungus of papaya.
Three polyketides alpha-pyrones, named passifloricins, were isolated from Passiflora foetida resin; their structures and relative configurations were assigned through 2D NMR spectroscopic analyses. These types of compounds were not detected in other passion flowers.
Based on the previously reported in vitro antiplasmodial activity of several xanthones from Garcinia mangostana, two xanthones, α-mangostin and a new compound, δ-mangostin, were isolated from mangosteen husk, and the in vitro antiplasmodial and cytotoxic effects were determined. α-Mangostin was more active against the resistant Plasmodium falciparum… (More)
Phenylphenalenones represent a kind of phytoalexins produced in leaves and rhyzomes of banana and plantains (Musaceae), as well as in species of other families. These compounds are synthesized in plants by induction with aminoglycosides, or in the first stages of attack by the pathogenic fungus Mycosphaerella fijensis, a causal agent of the disease known as… (More)
Carbon and proton atoms were fully assigned in this new type of withanolide by HMQC and HMBC experiments. The absolute configuration of acnistin A was determined by X-ray diffraction. Proton and 13C NMR measurements are particularly useful in identifying members of this group of natural products.
Ground pearl (Eurhizococcus colombianus) is a crop pest in Colombia, with special impact on fig, grass, rubus and tomato plants. The insect is resistant to external insecticide application because it produces a thick waxy shell that isolates it from the environment. The composition of this shell was determined by NMR and MS as a triglyceride, whose fatty… (More)
