Two triterpenoidal saponins were isolated from the seeds of Momordica cochinchinensis Sprenger (Cucurbitaceae). Identification of chemical structures has been performed by (1)H- and (13)C-NMR spectroscopy and gas chromatography (GC). One of the saponins is a new gypsogenin glycoside, named as gypsogenin 3-O-β-D-galactopyranosyl(1→2)-[α-L-rhamnopyranosyl(1→3)]-β-D-glucuronopyranoside (compound 1), which is reported for the first time from natural resources. The other saponin is a quillaic acid… CONTINUE READING
