Two new steroidal saponins, dioscoresides C (1) and D (2), along with a new natural product, pregnadienolone 3-O-beta-gracillimatriose (3), and two known compounds, pregnadienolone 3-O-beta-chacotrioside (4) and pseudoprotodioscin (5), were isolated from the rhizomes of Dioscorea panthaica Prain et Burkill. On the basis of extensive NMR studies and chemical(More)
Two 16-carboxy derivatives of pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids and its glucopyranosyl esters have been isolated from the ethanolic extract of the leaves of Uncaria sinensis (Olive.) Havil. These structures were deduced on the basis of spectroscopic evidences and chemical correlations, and named mitraphyllic acid (I), isomitraphyllic acid (II), isomitraphyllic(More)
Studies on the whole herb of Urtica dioica L. grown in Nyingchi area, China's Tibet Autonomous Region, resulted in the isolated of nine compounds: beta-sitosterol, trans-ferulic acid, dotriacotane, erucic acid, ursolic acid, scopoletin, rutin, quercetin and p-hydroxylbenzalcohol. Dotriacotane, erucic acid, scopoletin, rutin and p-hydroxylbenzalcohol were(More)
AIM To provide basic data for the synthesis of new sinomenine derivatives. METHODS The C ring in sinomenine was modified. RESULTS Seven compounds were prepared and screened for anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities. Compounds 2 and 5 showed better activities. CONCLUSION Modification of the C ring in sinomenine should be worthy to be studied(More)
Three new lanostane triterpenoids, fuscoporianol A (1), B (2), and C (3) were isolated from the petroleum ether extracts of Fuscoporia obliqua and their structures have been determined on the basis of chemical, spectroscopic methods and X-ray crystallographic analysis as 25-methoxy-21, 22-cyclolanosta-8-ene-3beta, 21alpha-diol(1), 3beta,(More)
Chemical screening with extracts of Streptomyces sp. (strain GT 61150) resulted in the detection, isolation, and structure elucidation of two new acyl alpha-L-rhamnopyranosides (1 and 2) and three new rhamnosyllactones A, B1 and B2 (3 approximately 5). Rhamnosyllactones B1 and B2 were obtained as a 5:1 mixture. The structures were confirmed by spectroscopic(More)
