Abstract Phytochemical investigation into the CHCl3 extract of the fruits of Barringtonia racemosa resulted in the isolation of two new metabolites along with isoracemosol A and betulinic acid as known metabolites. The new compounds were characterised as phytosphingosine-type ceramide [(2S,3S,4R)-2-[(2R)-2-hydroxyhexadecanoyl amino]-hexacos-8(E)-ene-1,3,4-triol, 1] and racemosol E [21β-acetoxy-22α-(2-methylbutyroxy)-olean-12-ene-3β,16α,28-triol, 2] on the basis of extensive spectroscopic data…

Ipomeolides A and B, Resin Glycosides from Ipomoea pes-caprae and Combination Therapy of Ipomeolide A with Doxorubicin.
A sublethal concentration of compound 1 when used in combination with 1 μM doxorubicin, an anticancer agent, significantly enhanced cytotoxicity to tumor cells, suggesting combined synergistic potency against leukemia cells and the absence of effects on epithelial cells may be beneficial for chemotherapy with minimal side effects to treat CML (chronic myeloid leukemia) malignancies.
Biotransformation of Artemisinin to 14-Hydroxydeoxyartemisinin: C-14 Hydroxylation by Aspergillus flavus.
This is the first report of hydroxylation of a secondary methyl of artemisinin at C-14 by the fungus A. flavus, which is synthetically not accessible.
Acylated flavonoid glycosides from Barringtonia racemosa
Three new acylated flavonoid glycosides, namely barringosides G–I (1–3), were isolated from the water-soluble extract of Barringtonia racemosa branches and leaves and showed moderate inhibitory effects on LPS-induced NO production in RAW264.
Evaluation of the Antibacterial Effect of Ethanol and Ethyl Acetate Extracts of Myrtus communis Against Antibiotic-Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Indigenous Uses, Phytochemical Analysis, and Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Australian Tropical Medicinal Plants
Australian tropical plants have been a rich source of food (bush food) and medicine to the first Australians (Aboriginal people), and those associated with indigenous knowledge of Aboriginal people could be a potential alternative source of novel anti-inflammatory therapeutics.


Oleanane-type isomeric triterpenoids from Barringtonia racemosa.
Two new isomeric acylated oleanane-type triterpenoids along with three known compounds were isolated from the MeOH extract of the dried fruits of Barringtonia racemosa and were not active against HeLa and P388 D1 carcinoma cell lines.
A ceramide and cerebroside from the starfish asterias amurensis Lütken and their plant-growth promotion activities.
Compounds 1, 2, and asteriacerebrosides A and B promoted plant growth in sprouts of Brassica campestris, and were determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence as 2-hydroxytetradecanoylamino and 4,13-docosadiene-1,3-diol.
Acylated triterpenoid saponins from the stem bark of Foetidia africana.
Nine new acylated triterpenoid saponins (4-12) were isolated from the stem bark of Foetidia africana. They all possess barringtogenol C as the aglycone, esterified by acetic and/or isovaleric acids.
A new triterpene from Barringtonia asiatica
The freeze-dried bark of Barringtonia asiatica afforded a new triterpene: (3β,11α)-11-hydroxyolean-12-en-3-yl palmitate (1), which exhibited slight activity against Candida albicans and were found inactive against Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Aspergillus niger.
