Jolkinolides are the main abietane-type diterpenoids isolated from the root of Euphorbia fischeriana Steud. In the present study, we investigated in vitro anti-inflammatory activity of four structural analogs of jolkinolide in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW264 macrophages. Among these jolkinolides, 17-hydroxy-jolkinolide B (HJB) exhibited the most potent inhibition of LPS-induced production of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)), nitric oxide (NO), and pro… CONTINUE READING
