Triterpenoids with Antiplatelet Aggregation Activity from the Roots of Ilex pubescens.
TLDR
Two new triterpenes and fivenew triterpene saponins, named ilexpusons A-G (1-7), as well as eight known compounds were isolated from Ilex pubescens, and among the tested compounds, 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 13, 14 and 15 exhibited significant inhibition of platelet aggregation in vitro.
Natural Monoterpenes: Much More than Only a Scent
TLDR
The authors focused attention on antioxidant activity, inhibition towards acetyl‐ and butyrylcholinesterase, and α‐amylase and α-glucosidase, antifungal, hepatoprotective, sedative properties, and their skin permeation enhancement.
Chemical study and evaluation of antioxidant activity and α-glucosidase inhibition of Myrciaria strigipes O . Berg ( Myrtaceae )
TLDR
This is an open access article and evaluation of antioxidant activity and α-glucosidase inhibition of Myrciaria strigipes O. Berg (Myrtaceae) and its role in apoptosis and wound healing is evaluated.
Identification of antidiabetic components in Uncariae Rammulus Cum Uncis based on phytochemical isolation and spectrum-effect relationship analysis.
TLDR
A comprehensive connection between U RCU chemical components and α-glucosidase inhibitory activity was established for the first time by using a spectrum-effect relationship model, which might be applicable to the quality control of URCU.
Biotransformation of Oleanane and Ursane Triterpenic Acids
TLDR
The present review provides clear evidence that industrial microbiology can be a promising way to obtain valuable pharmacologically active compounds in environmentally friendly conditions without processing huge amounts of plant biomass and using hazardous and expensive chemicals.
Antimicrobial Activity of Oleanolic and Ursolic Acids: An Update
TLDR
The potential use of these triterpenes against human pathogens, including their mechanisms of action, via in vivo studies, and the future perspectives about the use of compounds for human or even animal health are discussed.
Xanthones as α-glucosidase inhibitors from the antihyperglycemic extract of Securidaca inappendiculata
TLDR
The results indicated that xanthones from SI were powerful agents for antidiabetes, and attempt to explore the mechanism.

A New Triterpene From Uncaria macrophylla and Its Antitumor Activity
TLDR
A new oleanolic triterpene, 3β,6β,19α-trihydroxy-12-oleanen-28-oic acid was obtained from the chloroform-soluble portion of the 90% alcohol-water extract of the stem bark of Uncaria macrophylla.
alpha-Glucosidase inhibitory activity of triterpenoids from Cichorium intybus.
TLDR
Two new triterpenoids were obtained from the methanolic extract of seeds of Cichorium intybus along with 11 known compounds, and compounds 1, 1a, and 11 showed a good alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity.
Anti-HIV triterpene acids from Geum japonicum.
TLDR
The methanol extract from the whole plant of Geum japonicum was found to inhibit the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) protease through bioassay-directed fractionation of the extract, and a new triterpene acid showed potent inhibitory activity against HIV-1 protease.
Duboscic acid: a potent α-glucosidase inhibitor with an unprecedented triterpenoidal carbon skeleton from Duboscia macrocarpa.
TLDR
Duboscic acid is the first member of a new class of triterpenoids, for which the name "dubosane" is proposed, and its structure was unambiguously deduced by a single-crystal X-ray diffraction study.

TLDR
Four new ursane-type triterpenes were isolated from traditional Egyptian medicine olibanum, the exuded gum-resin from Boswellia carterii BIRDW, and their structures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and physicochemical evidence.
