Figures and Tables from this paper

Jatrophacine, a 4,5-seco-rhamnofolane diterpenoid with potent anti-inflammatory activity from Jatropha curcas

Anti-inflammatory activity with LPS-induced RAW 264.7 macrophages revealed that compound 1 strongly inhibited the production of nitric oxide, and the structure of the new diterpenoid was elucidated through a detailed analysis of its 1 D- and 2‬NMR spectra.

Natural thioredoxin reductase inhibitors from Jatropha integerrima

Nine new diterpenoids, jatrointelones A–I (1–9), including seven lathyranes (1–7) and two jatropholanes (8 and 9), along with 12 known analogues (10–21) were isolated from the trunks of Jatropha

One-step semisynthesis method of spirocurcasone and pyracurcasone from curcusones A and B.

The plausible mechanism of the formation of pyracurcasone was proposed, and the proposed biogenetic origin for spirocurcasone by Taglialatela-Scafati was confirmed.

Jatrolignans C and D: New Neolignan Epimers from Jatropha curcas

Two new neolignans jatrolignans, a pair of epimers, were isolated from the whole plants of Jatropha curcas L. (Euphorbiaceae) and showed dose-dependent antichlamydial effects.

Total Synthesis and Target Identification of the Curcusone Diterpenes.

It is demonstrated for the first time that BRAT1 can be inhibited by curcusone D, resulting in impaired DNA damage response, reduced cancer cell migration, potentiated activity of the DNA damaging drug etoposide, and other phenotypes similar toBRAT1 knockdown.

Plant-derived endoperoxides: structure, occurrence, and bioactivity

The present review summarizes the current knowledge about the structure, occurrence, peroxide detection methods, stability, biosynthesis, and biological activities of 206 endoperoxides isolated from 1911 to 2019, found in 115 plant species belonging to 36 different plant families.



Spirocurcasone, a diterpenoid with a novel carbon skeleton from Jatropha curcas.

The stereostructure of spirocurcasone was established using HRESIMS, NMR, and quantum mechanical calculation of the electronic circular dichroic (ECD) spectrum.

Diterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and a sesquiterpene-coumarin conjugate from Jatropha integerrima.

Five new compounds and nine known compounds have been isolated from the roots of Jatropha integerrima and six diterpenes were evaluated for their antiplasmodial, antituberculosis, and cytotoxic activities.

Jatrophalactam, a novel diterpenoid lactam isolated from Jatropha curcas.

Jatrophalactam (1), a novel diterpenoid lactam possessing an unprecedented 5/13/3 tricyclic skeleton, was isolated from the roots of Jatropha curcas. The structure and relative configuration of

A New Tetracyclic Diterpene from Jatropha curcas

Jatrophodione A (1), a new diterpene with four rings, together with nine known compounds, caniojane (2), jatropholone A (3), jatropholone B (4), jatrogrossidione (5), 2-epijatrogrossidione (6),

Anti-metastatic effects of curcusone B, a diterpene from Jatropha curcas.

The anti-metastatic potential of curcusone B, a diterpene isolated from Jatropha curcas Linn, a herbal plant that has been used in traditional folk medicine in many tropical countries, was investigated and effectively suppresses the metastatic processes at doses that are non-toxic to cells.

Antiproliferative Activity of Curcusone B from Jatropha Curcas on Human Cancer Cell Lines

The findings suggested that the curcusone B had strong antiproliferation which was dose dependent and may have potential as an anticancer agent.

Jatropha Diterpenes: a Review

The majority of the diterpenes exhibited cytotoxic, antitumor and antimicrobial activities in vitro and could be used as templates for the synthesis of new compounds with better biological activity for utilization in the pharmaceutical industries.
