Bioassay-guided fractionation of methanolic extracts of Mundulea chapelieri resulted in the isolation of two new flavonoids, isomundulinol (1) and 3-deoxy-MS-II (2), in addition to the eight known flavonoids 8-(3,3-dimethylallyl)-5,7-dimethoxyflavanone, MS-II, mundulinol, mundulone, munetone, rotenolone, rotenone, and tephrosin, and one known sesquiterpenoid, 8alpha-acetoxyelemol. The structures of the new flavonoids 1 and 2 were determined by 1D and 2D NMR experiments. All the isolated… 
Cytotoxic diterpenoids from Podocarpus madagascariensis from the Madagascar rainforest
Bioassay-directed fractionation of an extract of the root and bark of Podocarpus madagascariensis resulted in the isolation of a new totarol diterpenoid, which exhibited cytotoxic activity against the A2780 ovarian cancer cell line.
Pierreiones A-D, solid tumor selective pyranoisoflavones and other cytotoxic constituents from Antheroporum pierrei.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of a solid tumor selective extract of the leaves and twigs of Antheroporum pierrei acquired from the U.S. National Cancer Institute extract repository afforded four new
Antiplasmodial prenylated flavanonols from Tephrosia subtriflora
The CH2Cl2/MeOH (1:1) extract of the aerial parts of Tephrosia subtriflora afforded a new flavanonol, namedSubtriflavanonol, which showed weak antiplasmodial activity, but also showed selective anticancer activity against HEp2 cell line (CC50 16.9 μM).
Medicinal plants play a key role in malaria control in Africa, especially in remote areas where health facilities are limited. Tephrosia subtriflora indigenous plant and of common use in Kenya
A flavanone and antimicrobial activities of the constituents of extracts from Mundulea sericea
The constituents of M. sericea showed antimicrobial activities against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans and the structures of the compounds were identified based on spectral data analyses.
Cytotoxicity and Brine Shrimp Lethality of Rotenoids and Extracts from Sarcolobus globosus
Three rotenoids isolated from S. globosus, tephrosin, sarcolobin and 12a-hydroxyrotenone, showed high toxicity in the brine shrimp assay with LC50 values of 2.2, 2.8 and 1.9 μM, respectively.
Antileishmanial, antitrypanosomal, and cytotoxic screening of ethnopharmacologically selected Peruvian plants
Extracts (34) from eight plant species of the Peruvian Amazonia currently used in traditional Peruvian medicine, mostly as antileishmanial remedies and also as painkiller, antiseptic, antipyretic,
Longeracemosones A–F, Aromatase Inhibitors from Dunbaria longeracemosa
Six dihydroflavonols, longeracemosones A–F (1–6), together with two known flavonoids, mundulinol (7) and sericetin (8), have been isolated from Dunbaria longeracemosa. The structures of the isolated
Isolation and Structure Elucidation of Antiproliferative Natural Products from Madagascar
The biomolecular target of these studies is an enzyme that is overexpressed in tumor cells, namely Cdc25B, whose inhibition catalyzes cell cycle arrest at the G2/M transition of the cell cycle.
