  journal={Natural product sciences},
The aerial parts of Pergularia tomentosa L. afforded three cardenolides, desglucouzarin, coroglaucigenin and uzarigenin, in addition to β-sitosterol glucoside. The isolated compounds were identified by physical and spectral means, including IR, UV, [α]_D 1D-, 2D-NMR and FAB-MS experiments. The cardenolides, ghalakinoside, calactin and pergularoside previously reported from roots, were also identified in the aerial parts. 
Pergularia tomentosa in Vitro Culture and the Production of Cardenolides and Other Secondary Metabolites
Asclepiadaceae, known locally as “Ghalaka” (Ibn El Bitar 1809), is a plant indigenous to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Abyssinia, North Africa, Iran, Afghanistan, West Pakistan, northern and central Sudan. Expand
A new pregnane glycoside from Gomphocarpus fruticosus growing in Egypt
Phytochemical investigation of Gomphocarpus fruticosus of Egyptian origin afforded the new pregnane glycoside lineolon-3-O-[β-D-oleandropyranosyl-(1–4)-β- D-cymaropyranoside], along with six known compounds, which were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic evidences derived from 1D, 2D NMR experiments and mass spectrometry.

Insecticidal activity of alkaloids extract of Pergularia tomentosa (Asclepiadaceae) against fifth instar larvae of Locusta migratoria cinerascens (Fabricius 1781) (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
Results indicated that P. tomentosa may be a promising naturally occurring agent for locust larval control and exhibited a considerable larvicidal effect with a dose-dependent mortality. Expand
Phenylpropanoids from the stem bark of Jacaranda mimosaefolia
Two new compounds: 2-(3′,4′-dihydroxyphenyl) ethyl-3-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-4-O-p-hydroxyphenylacetyl-6-O-caffeoyl-β-D-glucopyranoside and 2-(3′,4′-dihydroxyphenyl)Expand
Nutritional Composition and Phytochemical, Antioxidative, and Antifungal Activities of Pergularia tomentosa L.

Cardenolides from Gomphocarpus sinaicus and Pergularia tomentosa (Apocynaceae: Asclepiadoideae) deter the feeding of Spodoptera littoralis
Methanol extracts of Gomphocarpus sinaicus, Pergularia tomentosa and Cynanchum acutum deterred feeding of Spodoptera littoralis in a binary-choice bioassay, suggesting that compounds other than cardenolides are responsible for the deterrent activity. Expand
Pergularia tomentosa, from Traditional Uses to Ecology and Phytochemistry
Background: Pergularia tomentosa L. has several traditional uses and biological activities which need to be more investigated. Objective: In this study, some ecological and phytochemical propertiesExpand
Inhibition of Alpha-Amylase Activity by Gymnocarpos decandrus Forssk. Constituents
The methanolic extract of the aerial parts of Gymnocarpos decandrus, the plant growing wildly in the middle east area and north Africa, showed a promising -amylase inhibitory activity and the more the hydroxylation pattern of the isolated phenolic compounds, the higher the ability to inhibit the -Amylase activity.

Activity guided fractionation with antimicrobial evaluation of Pergularia tomentosa L. (Asclepiadacea) whole plant.
The study clearly indicated that basic fraction showed highest antimicrobial activity for selected micro-organisms with lower minimum inhibitory concentration which ranges from 18.75 μg/ml to 150 μg/ML; Followed by wider spectrum of antimacterial activity for acidic and methanolic fraction against all tested organisms with minimum inhibitORY concentration.
