Analysis of saponins of wild Panax ginseng.
The composition and contents of neutral and acidic saponins of Chinese and Japanese wildginseng were analyzed and it is noteworthy that the content of ginsenoside-Ro, the glucuronide saponin of oleanolic acid, is remarkably high in the rhizome and main root of Chinese wild ginseng. Expand
Studies on the Constiutents of Atractylodes lancea
From the polar portion of the methanolic extract of the fresh rhizomes of Atractylodes lancea DC., nine new sesquiterpene glycosides [two guaiane-type glycosides, atractylosides A and B (1 and 2),Expand
Phenylpropanoid derivatives from edible canna, Canna edulis.
Two phenylpropanoid sucrose esters were isolated from dry rhizomes of Canna edulis Ker Gawl and on the basis of analysis of spectroscopic data and chemical evidence, they were shown to be 3-O-p-coumaroyl-6- O-feruloyL-beta-D-fructofuranosyl 6-O -acetyl-alpha-D -glucopyranoside. Expand
Methyl Caffeate as an α-Glucosidase Inhibitor from Solanum torvum Fruits and the Activity of Related Compounds
Methyl caffeate has a most favorable structure for both sucrase and maltase inhibition, except for a higher activity of methyl 3,4,5-trihydroxycinnamate against suCrase, which provides a prospect for antidiabetic usage of S. torvum fruit. Expand
Cardenolides in the regenerated plants obtained from Strophanthus divaricatus calli
Abstract The regenerated plants obtained from Strophanthus divaricatus calli contain 10 cardenolides, accumulating seven of them in the original plants. At
Chikusetsusaponin. VI. A New Saponin from the Rhizome of Panax pseudo-ginseng var. angustatus HARA.
A novel saponin named chikusetsusaponin VI was isolated from the rhizome of Panax pseudo-ginseng var. angustatus HARA and its structure was determined as 20(S)-protopanaxadiolExpand
