One unique prenylated bibenzyl, kurzphenol A (1), two new prenylated flavonoids, kurzphenols B and C (2 and 3), as well as fourteen known compounds (4-17) were isolated from the twigs of Macaranga kurzii. Compound 1 was the first example of prenylated bibenzyl which possesses a benzofuran ring. All the known compounds were isolated from M. kurzii for the(More)
Three new diterpenoids, stracheyioids A-C (1-3), as well as 36 known compounds (4-39) were isolated from the whole plants of Euphorbia stracheyi. Compound 1 was a rare 13-deoxy tigliane diterpenoid and compound 2 was an ingenol diterpenoid characterized by an unique 2Z,4Z-decadienoyl acidic moieties. All the known compounds were isolated from E. stracheyi(More)
Two new norditerpenoid alkaloids, named scutebarbatines M-N (1 and 2), were isolated from the whole plant of Scutellaria barbata D. Don. Their structures were established on the basis of detailed spectral analyses. In vitro, two new compounds showed significant cytotoxic activities against three human cancer lines (HONE-1 nasopharyngeal, KB oral epidermoid(More)
One rare diterpenoid which was an unusual phorbol derivative possessing a 5-ene-7-oxo functional group, wallichiioid A (1), and 17 known compounds (2-18) were isolated from the aerial parts of Euphorbia wallichii. The structures and relative configuration of these compounds were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic interpretation. All the(More)
Two new neo-clerodane diterpenoid alkaloids, scutebarbatine O (1) and 6-O-nicotinoylscutebarbatine G (2), were isolated from the whole plant of Scutellaria barbata. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including extensive 1D and 2D NMR analyses. In vitro, compounds 1 and 2 showed cytotoxic activities against three human tumor cell(More)
Six new neo-clerodane diterpenoid alkaloids, named scutehenanines A-D (1, 4, 5, 6), 6-O-acetylscutehenanine A (2), and 6-O-(2-carbonyl-3-methylbutanoyl)scutehenanine A (3), were isolated from the whole plant of Scutellaria barbata. Their structures were established on the basis of detailed physical data analyses. In vitro, the six new isolated compounds(More)
One rare flavonoid-diterpene heterodimer, denticulatain C (1), one modified geranyl-type side chain substituted flavonoid, denticulatain D (2) and one geranylated flavonoid, denticulatain E (3), as well as 11 known compounds (4-14) were isolated from the fronds of Macaranga denticulata. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive(More)
Three new minor prenylated flavonoids, named macadenanthins A–C (1–3), together with three known ones (4–6), were isolated from the twigs of Macaranga adenantha. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis including NMR, UV and MS. The prenyl moieties in compounds 1–3 were further modified by cyclization and(More)
The in vitro metabolism of two novel phosphate prodrugs of glycyrrhetic acid (GA) was studied by the method of incubation in the rat liver microsome and the in vivo plasma pharmacokinetics after injecting intravenously (i.v.) into six rats was investigated, respectively. The prodrugs diminished gradually with time and most of the parent drugs were released(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the aerial parts of Euphorbia sikkimensis led to the isolation of one new diterpenoids, named sikkimenoid E (1), together with thirteen other known compounds (2–14). Their structures were established by means of spectroscopic methods. Compound 2 was identified to be a trinortriterpenoid, and derived for the first time from a(More)
