The organic extract of the plant Maclura tinctoria exhibited moderate anti-HIV activity. Seven prenylated phenolic derivatives were isolated from the active fractions and characterized by spectroanalytical methods. New compounds macluraxanthone B (1), macluraxanthone C (2), and dihydrocudraflavone B (8) were identified.

New Isoprenylated Xanthones from Cudrania tricuspidata

A phytochemical investigation of the roots of Cudrania tricuspidata afforded three new isoprenylated xanthones, cudratricusxanthones N–P (1–3, resp.), together with five known compounds, 4–8. The

Hepatoprotective constituents ofcudrania tricuspidata

Phytochemical investigation of the MeOH extract of the root barks of Cudrania tricuspidata Bureau (Moraceae) furnished four isoprenylated xanthones, which showed the significant hepatoprotective effect on tacrine-induced cytotoxicity in human liver-derived Hep G2 cells.

Antibacterial Compounds of the Root Barks of Cudrania tricuspidata

− Six prenylated xanthones, cudraxanthone B (1), isocudraxanthone K (2), cudraxanthone H (3), cudratricusxanthone A (4), cudraxanthone L (5) and macluraxanthone B (6), have been isolated from the

Cytotoxic Xanthones from Garcinia penangiana Pierre

Two new xanthones, characterized as 4-(1,1-dimethylprop-2-enyl)-1,3,5,8-tetrahydroxyxanthone and penangianaxanthone, were isolated from the leaves of Garcinia penangiana and their structures were elucidated by analysis of spectroscopic data and comparison of the NMR data with the literature ones.

Antibacterial constituents from Uncaria tomentosa

Results of isolated compounds have justified ethnopharmacological use of Uncaria tomentosa in microbial infections and showed significant antibacterial activities against Escherchia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Bacillus subtilis.

Cytotoxic and antibacterial xanthones from the roots of Maclura cochinchinensis

Abstract Three new furanoxanthones, macochinxanthones A–C (1–3) and sixteen known xanthones (4–19) were isolated from the roots of Maclura cochinchinensis. Their structures were elucidated by

Two New Xanthones from Garcinia chapelieri: Chapexanthone A; chapexanthone B

From the stem bark hexanic extract of Garcinia chapelieri, chapexanthone A, B were isolated using combinations of column and thin-layer chromatographic methods and elucidated by NMR spectroscopic methods.
