The anti-inflammatory activity of a coumarin and nine anthraquinone derivatives, 3-hydroxy-1-methoxy-2-methylanthraquinone (1), 2-hydroxymethyl anthraquinone (2), schimperiquinone B (3), cleomiscosin A (4), damnacanthal (5), 1,2-dihydroxy anthraquinone (6), damnacanthol (7), 3-hydroxy-2-hydroxymethyl anthraquinone (8), 1-hydroxy-2-methoxyanthraquinone (9), and 2-hydroxymethyl-3-O-prenylanthraquinone (10), isolated from the roots of Pentas schimperi were determined. The anti-15-lipoxygenase… CONTINUE READING
