This study evaluated the in vitro antimicrobial effect of 3β-acetoxy-norlup-20-one (1) and 3-chloro-4α,14α-dimethyl-5α-cholest-8-ene (2), triterpene derivatives from Euphorbia officinarum latex against fungal and bacterial phytopathogens. Results showed that although mycelial growth of several strains of Verticillium dahlia, and Fusarium oxysporum fsp. melonis and Penicillium expansum was affected only moderately, the two compounds were able to reduce highly conidia formation and germination…

Foliar application of the triterpene derivative 24-methylen-elemo-lanosta-8,24-dien-3-one alleviates salt toxicity in grapevine
This work focused on the effect triterpene derivative 24-methylen-elemo-lanosta-8,24-dien-3-one (F3) on the induction of salt stress tolerance of the Moroccan grapevine cv. “Doukkali”. Hardwood
LC-MS/MS Tandem Mass Spectrometry for Analysis of Phenolic Compounds and Pentacyclic Triterpenes in Antifungal Extracts of Terminalia brownii (Fresen)
The results justify the traditional uses of macerations and decoctions of T. brownii stem wood and bark for crop and wood protection and demonstrate that standardized extracts could have uses for the eco-friendly control of plant pathogenic fungi in African agroforestry systems.
1 LC-MS / MS Tandem Mass Spectrometry for Analysis of 2 Phenolic Compounds and Pentacyclic Triterpenes in 3 Antifungal Extracts of Terminalia brownii ( Fresen ) 4
Decoctions, macerations and fumigations of the stem bark and wood of Terminalia brownii 20 Fresen. are used in traditional medicine for fungal infections and as pesticides on field crops and in 21
Induced resistance to wild fire disease of Nicotiana benthamiana using seed treated with triterpene derivatives from Euphorbia
Analysis of plant defense markers revealed that H2O2 and guaiacol peroxidase were only slightly activated but were primed after pathogen infiltration, underline the duality of the mode of action of the triterpenic compounds and suggest their use as plant defense inducers in crop protection.
Effect of altering the steric hindrance of the nitrogen atom in 2,5-bis(pyridin-n-yl)-1,3,4 thiadiazole isomers on their ability to elicit tomato defense responses against Verticillium wilt and crown gall diseases
It is demonstrated that the presence of the N atom within the two pyridinyl groups in the position 3 or 4 highly enhanced the activity of plant defense and antioxidant responses as well as their ability to reduce the severity of symptoms caused by V. dahliae on tomato.


A new antibacterial lupane ester from the seeds of Acokanthera oppositifolia Lam.
The potential of A. oppositifolia is presented as a cardioprotective agent against the microorganisms responsible for endocarditis and a triterpene and a cardiac glycoside evidenced significant antibacterial activity.
Benzopyranones from the Endophytic Fungus Hyalodendriella sp. Ponipodef12 and Their Bioactivities
The results indicate the potential of this endophytic fungus as a source of bioactive benzopyranones and indicates that the chlorine substitution at position 2 may contribute to its bioactivity.
Triterpenes and Steroids from Euphorbia denticulata Lam. With Anti-Herpes Symplex Virus Activity
In this research, dried acetone:chloroform extract of aerial parts of E. denticulata as one of the endemic plants to Iran, afforded a number of triterpenes and steroids including betulin and (3β,23E)-Cycloarta-23-ene-3,25-diol which were reported for the first time from this plant.
New Bioactive Semisynthetic Derivatives of 31-Norlanostenol and Obtusifoliol from Euphorbia Officinarum

The local Egyptian peels of Malus domestica were extracted successively with absolute ethanol and partitioned sequentially with n-hexane, chloroform and methanol. Friedelin (1) was isolated from the
Enhancement of anti-bacterial and anti-tumor activities of pentacyclic triterpenes by introducing exocyclic α,β-unsaturated ketone moiety in ring A
The results for the first time provided scientific evidence for improvement of anti-bacterial and anti-tumor activities of pentacyclic triterpenes using derivatives of these compounds.
A new lupane-type triterpenoid fatty acid ester and other isolates from Ophiorrhiza shendurunii
A new pentacyclic triterpenoid fatty acid ester and lupan-20-ol-3(β)-yl hexadecanoate were isolated from the hexane and chloroform extracts of Ophiorrhiza shendurunii from South India and showed significant activities against Candida albicans and Fusarium oxysporum.
Antibacterial, Antifungal and Phytotoxic screening of some prepared derivatives of triterpenoids in comparison to their respective bromo-keto precursors
A series of bromo-keto derivatives of pentacyclic triterpenoids [2-bromo / 2, 2-dibromolupanone (I / Ia), methyl 2a-bromo / 2, 2-dibromodihydrobetulonate (II / IIa) and 2a-bromo / 4a- bromofriedelin
Penicillium expansum: consistent production of patulin, chaetoglobosins, and other secondary metabolites in culture and their natural occurrence in fruit products.
The results showed that none of the 260 isolates produced ochratoxin A, penitrem A, or rubratoxin B, however, chaetoglobosin A and communesin B were produced consistently by all 260 isolate, and patulin and roquefortine C were produced by 98% of the isolates.
