Abstract From the leaves of Chamaecyparis obtusa several biflavones were isolated and identified, namely: sciadopitysin, ginkgetin, isoginkgetin, podocarpusflavone B, 7,7″-O-dimethylamentoflavone, bilobetin, podocarpusflavone A, and 7-O-methylamentoflavone. The presence of amentoflavone and hinokiflavone was also confirmed. The composition of biflavones in other Chamaecyparis species D Ch. lawsoniana, Ch. thyoides D and cultivar varieties D Ch. pisifera “Squarrosa”, Ch. pisifera “Boulevard” D…

Differentiating Chamaecyparis obtusa and Chamaecyparis pisifera leaves using 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
The key compounds contributing to the discrimination of the two leaf types were found to be acetate, homovanillate, protocatechuate, sucrose, catechin, formate, 2-hydroxyisobutyrate, and hypoxanthine.
Reassessment of structures of flavonoids isolated from the fruits of Pongamia pinnata (L.) Pierre
The structures of the isolated phytoconstituents were elucidated on the basis of the spectral data analysis and chemical reactions.

A Review on the Phytochemistry, Pharmacology, and Pharmacokinetics of Amentoflavone, a Naturally-Occurring Biflavonoid
This review paper aims to profile amentoflavone on its plant sources, natural derivatives, pharmacology, and pharmacokinetics, and to highlight some existing issues and perspectives in the future.
Preparation of Molecularly Imprinted Polymer for Extracting Flavones from Chamaecyparis Obtusa
A quercitrin, molecularly imprinted polymer with specific recognition ability for flavone was prepared using quercitrin as template, acrylamide as functional monomer, and ethylene glycol
Inhibitory Effect of quercetin-3-O-$\alpha$-L-rhamnopyranoside from Chamaecyparis obtuse on Aldose Reductase and Sorbitol Accumulation
Taxifolin-3-O--D-xylopyranoside and quercetin-3-O--L-rhamnopyranoside were isolated from an EtOAc-soluble extract of the leaves of Chamaecyparis obtuse. Quercetin-3-O--L-rhamnopyranoside was found to
Biflavonoids Isolated from Selaginella tamariscina and Their Anti-Inflammatory Activities via ERK 1/2 Signaling
Results suggest that H and mH are compounds having potent anti-inflammatory effects that could be used to treat such diseases as IBD.
Antiproliferative and Apoptotic Activity of Chamaecyparis obtusa Leaf Extract against the HCT116 Human Colorectal Cancer Cell Line and Investigation of the Bioactive Compound by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry-Based Metabolomics
The activation of c-Jun N-terminal kinases played a key role in the apoptotic effect of the methanol extract of CO leaves in HCT116 human colon cancer cells, and it was revealed that anthricin was the major compound contributing to the anti-proliferative activity.
Phenolic compounds as antiviral agents: An In-Silico investigation against essential proteins of SARS-CoV-2
It was found that Amentoflavone, Dieckol, Bilobetin, Punicalagin, Tellimagrandin-I, Tannic acid, Sciadopitysin, Ginkgetin and Chebulagic acid could be a promising antiviral drug since they present more important binding energy than conventional ones.


Antifungal biflavones from Cupressocyparis leylandii.
1H- and 13C-NMR data for 4-O-methylcupressuflavone are given for the first time and the antifungal activity of Cupressocyparis leylandii and 4-Methylamentoflavone against Alternaria alternata and Cladosporium oxysporum was assayed.
Biflavones of the subfamily callitroideae, cupressaceae
Selective cytotoxicity of ginkgetin from Selaginella moellendorffii.
A dose-dependent inhibition was observed with 1 on the growth of OVCAR-3 (human ovarian adenocarcinoma) cells with 50% inhibition occurring at 1.8 micrograms/mL.
