Melanogenesis inhibitory and free radical scavenging activities of nine cyclic (1-9) and one acyclic diarylheptanoids (10), and two phenolic compounds, (+)-rhododendrol (11) and (+)-catechin (12), isolated from the ethyl acetate-soluble fraction of the MeOH extract of the bark of Acer nikoense MAXIM. (Aceraceae) were examined. Upon evaluation of compounds 1-12 on the melanogenesis in the B16 melanoma cells, two compounds, 2 and 8, exhibited marked inhibitory activity with 55.6% and 46.8… CONTINUE READING
