Inhibition of trypsin and chymotrypsin by anti-inflammatory triterpenoids from Compositae flowers.


Taraxastane, oleanane, ursane, lupane, taraxane, cycloartane, dammarane and tirucallane triterpenoids isolated from flowers of Compositae plants have been previously reported to exhibit anti-inflammatory effects and are variously competitive and non-competitive inhibitors of the serine proteases trypsin and chymotrypsin. The general features of those… (More)
