Four guaia-12,6-olide type sesquiterpene lactones, aguerin B (1), 8alpha-acetoxyzaluzanin C (2), cynaropicrin (3), and deacylcynaropicrin (4), were isolated from the flowers of Hemisteptia lyrata Bunge. It is the first report on the isolation of compounds 1-4 from Hemisteptia species. All the isolates (1-4) were examined for their cytotoxic activity against… (More)
The 8-acetoxy-2-methoxy-10-hydroxy-3,11(13)-guaiaden-12,6-olide 1 and 8,10-diacetoxy-2-methoxy-3,11(13)-guaiadiene-12,6-olide 2 were isolated from Chrysanthemum boreale Makino. Compound 1 inhibited the etoposide-induced apoptosis in U 937 cells with an IC50 value 8.6 microg/mL.
