Investigation of the chemical constituents of the fruits of Knema glauca (Myristicaceae) yielded a new acyclic diterpene acid, named glaucaic acid 4, together with four acylphenols, including 1-(2,6-dihydroxyphenyl) tetradecan-1-one 1, malabaricone A 6, dodecanoylphloroglucinol 7 and 1-(2,4,6-trihydroxyphenyl)-9-phenylnonan-1-one 8, two lignans sesamin 2 and asarinin 3, and a flavan, myristinin D 5. In addition, myristinin A 9 and (±)-7,4′-dihydroxy-3′-methoxyflavan 10 were isolated from its… 
Chemical constituents from the Knema globularia fruits and their in vitro cytotoxicity
Abstract Two new compounds, designated as knecorticosanones A–B (1–2), along with three known compounds (3–5) were isolated from the fruits of Knema globularia. Their structures were elucidated by
Two new flavans from the trunk and leaves of Horsfieldia glabra
TLDR
Two new flavans, (2R, 4R)-4′-hydroxy-3′,5′-methyl-6,7-methylenedioxy-4-O-2′-cycloflavan and 4–7 were assessed for their cytotoxicity against five human cancer cell lines, and the result showed that they had no activity.
Phytochemistry and Biological Activities of the Genus Knema (Myristicaceae)
TLDR
Study showed that Knema and its active principles possessed a wide range of biological activities such as antibacterial, antinematodal, anti-inflammatory, cytotoxicity, and acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activities, which support the application and exploitation for new drug development.
Phenolic compounds with anti-inflammatory effects from Knema furfuracea
Abstract Knema furfuracea is a tropical evergreen plant, which belongs to Myristicaceae family. Phytochemical investigation on the twigs and leaves of K. furfuracea led to the isolation of 11
Cytotoxicity of chemical constituents from the roots of Knema globularia
Abstract Two new diaryloctanes, kneglobularic acid A (1) and kneglobularic acid B (2), as well as a new acetophenone derivative, kneglobularone A (3), together with four known compounds (4–7) were
Flavonoids from the leaves and twigs of Knema elegans
TLDR
Phytochemical investigation on the leaves and twigs of K. elegans led to the isolation and identification of two new flavonoids knemavones A and B (1 and 2), along with fifteen known analogues (3–17), including chalcones, flavanes, flavones, and isoflavones.
Nutmegs and wild nutmegs: An update on ethnomedicines, phytochemicals, pharmacology, and toxicity of the Myristicaceae species
TLDR
A thorough literature survey of peer-reviewed publications, scientific online databases, authentic webpages, and regulatory guidelines found major phytochemicals namely, terpenes, fatty acids, phenylpropanoids, alkanes, lignans, flavonoids, coumarins, and indole alkaloids found in nutmeg and wild nutmegs.
Antimycobacterial furofuran lignans from the roots of Anemopsis californica.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the majority of activity of crude A. californica root extracts against nontuberculous mycobacteria can be attributed to the presence of sesamin and asarinin.
