Five xanthones, 1,4,5,6-tetrahydroxyxanthone (1) and bracteaxanthones III-VI (2-5) together with twenty-six known compounds (6-31), were isolated from the ethanol extract of the stem bark of Garcinia bracteata. Their structures were elucidated via spectroscopic analyses. Growth inhibitory activities of these compounds against the human leukaemic HL-60 cell(More)
Two new triterpenoids, 2alpha-hydroxy-3beta-O-acetyllup-20(29)-en-28-oic acid (1) and 3- O-(4'- O-acetyl)-alpha- L-arabinopyranosyloleanolic acid ( 2), together with two known triterpenoids, betulinic acid ( 3) and messagenic acid ( 4) were isolated from the CHCl3 extract of Garcinia hanburyi resin. The structures were elucidated by analysis of the NMR(More)
A new friedelane-type triterpene (1), along with seven known triterpenoids, was isolated from the stems and leaves of Calophyllum inophyllum Linn. Their structures were established as 3beta, 23-epoxy-friedelan-28-oic acid (1), friedelin (2), epifriedelanol (3), canophyllal (4), canophyllol (5), canophyllic acid (6), 3-oxo-friedelan-28-oic acid (7), and(More)
Five new diketopiperazines, prenylcyclotryprostatin B (1), 20-hydroxycyclotryprostatin B (2), 9-hydroxyfumitremorgin C (3), 6-hydroxytryprostatin B (4), and spirogliotoxin (5), were isolated from the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus fumigatus YK-7, along with nine known compounds, 6-14. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, and their(More)
Five new 3,4-seco-lanostane-type triterpenoids, seco-coccinic acids G-K (1-5), and a known compound, seco-coccinic F, were isolated from the roots of Kadsura coccinea (Lem.) A. C. Sm. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including 2D-NMR and HR-MS techniques. The cell growth inhibitory effects of these compounds were assayed in human(More)
Two new triterpenoids, 3-oxotirucalla-7,9(11),24-trien-21-oic acid (1) and 18Hα,3β,20β-ursanediol (2), along with 15 known triterpenes, α-amyrin, α-boswellic acid, β-boswellic acid, acetyl α-boswellic acid, acetyl β-boswellic acid, 9,11-dehydro-β-boswellic acid, 9,11-dehydro-α-boswellic acid, acetyl 11α-methoxy-β-boswellic acid, 11-keto-β-boswellic acid,(More)
Three new sterols, 3beta,16alpha-dihydroxy-5alpha,17beta-cholestan-21-carboxylic acid (1), 3beta-acetoxy-16alpha-hydroxy-5alpha,17beta-cholestan-21-carboxylic acid (2) and 3beta-(3-hydroxybutyroxy)-16alpha-hydroxy-5alpha,17beta-cholestan-21-carboxylic acid (3) were isolated from Selaginella tamariscina (Beauv.) Spring (Selaginellaceae). Their structures(More)
Three new phenolic compounds, thamnoliadepsides A (1), B (2), and thamnolic acid A (3), and seven known compounds, everninic acid (4), baeomycesic acid (5), β-orcinol (6), β-resorcylic acid (7), ethyl orsellinate (8), squamatic acid (9), and vermicularin (10), were isolated from the lichen Thamnolia vermicularis (Sw.) Ach. ex Schaerer. Their structures were(More)
In this study, we screened 17 medicinal plants for binding activity to G-quadruplex d(TTGGGTT)4 by (1)H NMR spectroscopy and found that the crude extract of Peganum harmala L. seeds showed the most potential binding activity. Subsequently, (1)H NMR- and bioassay-guided isolation of the extract of P. harmala L. was performed to obtain four pairs of partially(More)
Four quinolone alkaloids (1-4) and three indole alkaloids (20-22), together with 30 known alkaloids (5-19, 23-37), were isolated from the fruits of Euodia rutaecarpa. Their structures were established by spectroscopic analyses. The in vitro cytotoxic activities of these alkaloids against leukaemia HL-60 and prostate cancer PC-3 cell lines were evaluated.
