Diterpenoids and Lignans from Cephalotaxus fortunei.
Five new diterpenoids including two Cephalotaxus troponoids (1 and 2), two 17-nor-cephalotane-type diterpenoids (3 and 4), and an abietane-type diterpenoid (5), two new lignans (6 and 7), and a new
Functional Characterization of a 2OGD Involved in Abietane-Type Diterpenoids Biosynthetic Pathway in Salvia miltiorrhiza
A new 2OGD (Sm2OGD25) from S. miltiorrhiza is identified that could catalyze the hydroxylation of sugiol at C-15 and C-16 positions to produce hypargenin B and crossogumerin C, respectively and belongs to the DOXC54 clade.
The antioxidant activity of natural diterpenes: theoretical insights
Diterpenes that were isolated from Crossopetalum gaumeri (Loes.) Lundell (Celastraceae) plants are reported to exhibit a range of biological activities, in particular as radical scavengers. Thus
Bioactive Dimeric Abietanoid Peroxides from the Bark of Cryptomeria japonica
Three new dimeric abietane-type diterpenoids were isolated from the methanol extract of the bark of Cryptomeria japonica and their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and comparison of NMR data with those of known analogues.
Cytotoxic diterpenoids from Salvia yunnanensis.
New 4,5‐seco‐20(10→5)‐abeo‐Abietane Diterpenoids with Anti‐Inflammatory Activity from Isodon lophanthoides var. graciliflorus (Benth.) H.Hara
Three new 4,5‐seco‐20(10→5)‐abeo‐abietane diterpenoids were isolated from the aerial parts of Isodon lophanthoides var.
Synthesis of Novel Podocarpa-8,11,13-Triene-7- and 13-Nitriles and Evaluation of their Anti-Inflammatory and Cytotoxic Activity
7-Oxopodocarpa-8,11,13-triene-13-nitrile exhibited significant inhibition of NO production (IC50 = 6 μM) and was not cytotoxic, as measured by the inhibition of nitric oxide (NO) production by RAW cells.
Natural Products from the Yucatecan Flora: Structural Diversity and Biological Activity.
This review describes the main findings in over 20 years (1992 to 2018) of exploring the natural product diversity of the Yucatecan flora.
Variability of the antibacterial potential among analogue diterpenes against Gram-positive bacteria: considerations on the structure–activity relationship
The search for new antibacterial agents and a better comprehension of substances with antimicrobial behavior is mandatory nowadays due to the serious public health problem of infection diseases. In


Abietane Diterpenes from Clerodendron cyrtophyllum
Tow novel abietane derivatives, cyrtophyllones A (1) and B (2), together with six known compounds, teuvincenone F (3), unicinatone (4), sugiol (5), friedelin (6), clerodolone (7), stigmasta-5, 22,
Absolute configuration of sesquiterpenes from Crossopetalum tonduzii and their inhibitory effects on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen activation in Raji cells.
Two new sesquiterpenoids with a dihydro-beta-agarofuran skeleton were isolated from Crossopetalum tonduzii and showed strong antitumor-promoting effects on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation.
Antitumor‐Promoting Effects of New Sesquiterpenes from Crossopetalum tonduzii
Seven new sesquiterpenes with a ‘dihydro‐β‐agarofuran’ (=5,11‐epoxy‐5β,10α‐eudesmane) skeleton were isolated from Crossopetalum tonduzii and showed moderate antitumor‐promoting effects with respect to the activation of the Epstein–Barr virus early antigen (EBV‐EA).
New sesquiterpenes from Crossopetalum tonduzii.
Five new sesquiterpenes (1-5) with a dihydro-beta-agarofuran skeleton were isolated from Crossopetalum tonduzii and showed low insect-antifeedant activity.
Bioactive Diterpenoids Isolated from Salvia mellifera
Antimicrobial activity against some Gram (+) bacteria was observed for the diterpenoids ferruginol, taxodione, 7α‐hydroxi‐royleanone and demethylsalvican‐11‐12‐dione.
(M)- and (P)-bicelaphanol A, dimeric trinorditerpenes with promising neuroprotective activity from Celastrus orbiculatus.
Two unprecedented dimeric trinorditerpenes existing as atropisomers, together with their monomer celaphanol A, were isolated from the root bark of Celastrus orbiculatus and exhibited a significant in vitro neuroprotective effect against a hydrogen peroxide-induced cell viability decrease.
