Five aromatic compounds possessing DPPH-radical scavenging activity were iso lated from a water extract of the twigs of Messerschmidia argentea. These com pounds were identified as rosmarinic acid and its methyl ester, cafferic acid and its methyl ester, and 3-(3', 4'-dihydroxyphenyl)lactic acid, respectively. Introduction Messerschmidia argentea (Japanese name: Monpanoki) is a small tree with large inverted-ovate leaves found on shores of Okinawa Islands. We previously reported the iso lation…

Rosmarinic acid in Argusia argentea inhibits snake venom-induced hemorrhage
A methanolic extract of Argusia (or Messerschmidia or Tournefortia) argentea (Boraginaceae) significantly inhibited hemorrhage induced by crude venom of Trimeresurus flavoviridis and greatly contributes to the antihemorrhagic efficiency of A. argentei against crude snake venoms and hemorrhagic toxins.
Biological and Pathological Studies of Rosmarinic Acid as an Inhibitor of Hemorrhagic Trimeresurus flavoviridis (habu) Venom
Results demonstrate that RA inhibited most of the hemorrhage effects of venom, indicating that rosmarinic acid can be expected to provide therapeutic benefits in neutralization of snake venom accompanied by heat stability.
