Two new triterpenoids from Gypsophila oldhamiana

Two new triterpenoids were isolated and elucidated from the roots of Gypsophila oldhamiana and showed interesting antiangiogenic activities and the significant cytotoxicities against H460.

Selective Profiling of Saponins from Gypsophila trichotoma Wend. by HILIC Separation and HRMS Detection.

The study demonstrates the potential of the coupling of highly-selective (Si)-HILIC UHPLC with HRMS and MS/MS detection for analysis and identification of triterpenoid saponins.

Characterization of Triterpene Saponins from Gypsophila arrostii by Electrospray Ionization Ion Trap Multiple-Stage Mass Spectrometry

Saponins are natural surfactant compounds whose aqueous solutions can form stable foam and micellar solutions. Gypsophila arrostii Guss., Caryophyllaceae, represents the main source of saponins for

Preliminary phytochemical analysis and evaluation of in vitro antioxidant, antiproliferative, antidiabetic, and anticholinergics effects of endemic Gypsophila taxa from Turkey.

The obtained results indicated that the extracts of Gypsophila taxa are rich in phenolics and flavonoids with powerful antioxidant and antiproliferative activity against different type of cancer cell lines.



Major triterpenoid saponins from saponaria officinalis

Two major triterpenoid saponins, named saponariosides A and B, were isolated from the whole plants of Saponaria officinalis and were respectively defined to be

Characterization of three new triterpenoid saponins from Ardisia japonica.

Three novel triterpene glycosides 1-3 from the medicinal plant Ardisia japonica (Myrsinaceae) are described, characterized by a branched oligosaccharide chain, composed of four sugar units.

How to characterize three caryophyllaceous species by the mean of the ratio of two glucuronide prosaponins?

A biological test carried on the root saponin extracts showed that S. officinalis Extract was the least haemolytic and that G. paniculata extract was the most haemorytic of the three species.

A Major Triterpenoid Saponin from Gypsophila oldhamiana

A new saponin, gypoldoside A (1), was isolated from the roots of Gypsophila oldhamiana and found to be highly active against three different human cancer cell lines, with IC50 values in the low micromolar range.

Commercial utilization of plant-derived saponins: an overview of medicinal, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications.

The useful biological applications of saponins range from their use as fish and snail poisons for the control of populations of “trash” fish and human disease-bearing schistosomes in various waterways, to potentially interesting anti-cancel and ion channel-blocking properties.


Herbivorous insects exploit not only the main primary metabolites of plants as nutrients but also many further chemical constituents which have a rich structural and quantitative variability which have negative effect on insects, i.e. as allomones.
