Three new flavones (1–3), together with six known flavones (4–9), were isolated from the fruits of Vernicia fordii collected from Hunan province of China. Their structures were characterized by means of extensive spectroscopic analyses. Compounds 1–3 and 9 were evaluated for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (anti-TMV) activity. The results showed that compound 9 exhibited high anti-TMV activity with inhibition rate of 32.6%. This inhibition rate is close to that of positive control (33.8…

Flavones from the Bark of Lindera caudata and Their anti‐Tobacco Mosaic Virus Activity

Two new flavones, 5-hydroxy-8-hydroxymethyl-7,4′-dimethoxy-flavone (1) and 6-Hydroxy- 8-Hydroxymethylfavones (2), together with six known flavones (3–8), were isolated from the bark of Lindera caudata and elucidated by spectroscopic methods including extensive 1D and 2D NMR techniques.

Flavones from Cassia siamea and their anti-tobacco mosaic virus activity

Two new flavones, siameflavones A and B (1 and 2), together with five known flavones (3–7) were isolated from the stem of Cassia siamea. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods

Triterpenes with cytotoxicity from the leaves of Vernicia fordii.

Of the isolated compounds, 1, 2 and 4 (daturadiol) displayed moderate cytotoxicities against two or more human cancer cell lines in HepG2 (hepatocellular carcinoma, SK-OV-3 (ovarian carcinoma), A-549 (lung carcinoma) and SNU-1 (gastric carcinoma).

An ultraviolet spectrophotometric assay for measuring lipase activity using long-chain triacyglycerols from Aleurites fordii seeds.

In this study, a specific, continuous, and sensitive UV spectrophotometric lipase assay using natural triacylglycerols from the Aleurites fordii seed oil (tung oil) is designed, which is similar to that of a fluorescent assay recently developed at the laboratory.

Aspergillines A-E, highly oxygenated hexacyclic indole-tetrahydrofuran-tetramic acid derivatives from Aspergillus versicolor.

Apergillines A-C represent a new subclass of CPA-derived alkaloids, and aspergills B and E possess a butanoic acid methyl ester moiety, and all compounds displayed anti-TMV and cytotoxic activities.
