Various dehydrogenation polymers (the so-called synthetic lignins) were synthesized from four different phenylpropenoids by endwise and bulk polymerizations and investigated for their anti-influenza virus activity. All of these materials suppressed the plaque formation of influenza virus infecting MDCK cells and the RNA-dependent RNA synthesis as effectively as the high molecular weight lignin-related extract (Fr. VI) of pine cone of Pinus parviflora Sieb. et Zucc. The structural simplicity and… CONTINUE READING
