Panax stipuleanatus Tsai et Feng (Araliaceae) is an herb that grows in Southeast Yunnan, China, and North Vietnam. In China, it has traditionally been used as a tonic and in the treatment of bruises, bleeding, and muscular pain. To date, oleanane-type triterpenoids have been reported to be major components of P. stipuleanatus, and stipuleanosides R1 and R2 were isolated from a methanol extract of this plant. 2 In a previous investigation, we isolated eleven oleanane type triterpenoids from P…

Enantioselective Synthesis and Antifungal Activity of C18 Polyacetylenes.

An efficient and highly enantioselective method was established and employed to achieve the natural C18 polyacetylenes (S, E)-octadeca-1,9-dien-4,6-diyn-3-ol 1 and their analogs, which exhibited high potencies against eight pathogenic fungal species tested.

Bioactive C17 and C18 Acetylenic Oxylipins from Terrestrial Plants as Potential Lead Compounds for Anticancer Drug Development

The cytotoxic, anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects of C17 and C18 acetylenic oxylipins from terrestrial plants are presented and their possible mechanisms of action and structural requirements for optimal cytotoxicity are discussed.

Polyacetylenes from Panax stipuleanatus and Their Cytotoxic Effects on Human Cancer Cells.

Two new polyacetylenes, stipudiol (I) and stipuol (II) are isolated together with three previously known compounds.

Alkynol natural products target ALDH2 in cancer cells by irreversible binding to the active site.

A chemical proteomic strategy is used to identify ALDH2 as a molecular target of falcarinol in cancer cells and confirm enzyme inhibition via covalent alkylation of the active site and the synthesis of stipudiol led to the observation that AL DH2 exhibits preference for alkynol-based binders.

Two important Ginseng plants in Southeast Asia: a systematic review of their traditional uses, botany, phytochemistry, and pharmacology

This review aims to critically and comprehensively evaluate the plant physiology, tissue culture, genetic diversity, phytochemistry, and pharmacological functions of PV and PS, which are two endangered species of the Panax genus.

Chemoenzymatic synthesis of a glycolipid library and elucidation of the antigenic epitope for construction of a vaccine against Lyme disease.

It is demonstrated that galactose, cholesterol, and a fatty acid with a minimal chain length of four carbon atoms comprises the essential structure for recognition by antibodies.

Synthesis of panax acetylenes: chiral syntheses of acetylpanaxydol, PQ-3 and panaxydiol.

The absolute configurations of Acetylpanaxydol, PQ-3 and panaxydiol and their optical isomers were determined to be 1-Ac, 2 and 3, respectively, by comparisons of their optical rotations and the NMR data of their MTPA esters with those of natural products.

A new furanoid diterpene from Caesalpinia pulcherrima.

A new cassane-type diterpene isovouacapenol E (1) was isolated from the leaves of Caesalpinia pulcherrima, together with the known compounds caesaldekarin A (3), spathulenol (4), caryophyllene oxide

Studies on panax acetylenes: absolute structure of a new panax acetylene, and inhibitory effects of related acetylenes on the growth of L-1210 cells.

A new Panax acetylene, 3-oxo-PQ-1 (1), was isolated from Panax quinquefolium and its isomer, PQ-8 (4), were found to exhibit weaker cytotoxicity than the C(17)-polyacetylenes, and the growth inhibitory effects ofPanax acetylenes (1-8) and their stereoisomers against leukemia cells were tested.

Polyacetylenes from the roots of cultivated-wild ginseng and their cytotoxicity in vitro

Column chromatographic separation of the roots of cultivated-wild ginseng (Jangnoisam) led to the isolation of seven polyacetylenes, which were isolated from this source for the first time and tested for their cytotoxic activity against four human cancer cell lines in vitro using the SRB method.
