Abstract A spirostanol glycoside was isolated, together with some known compounds, from the methanolic extract of the fruits of Asparagus officinalis and characterized by chemical and spectral methods including 13 C NMR-DEPT and 2D-hetcor NMR spectra. The spirostanol glycoside caused 100% immobilization of human spermatozoa at 1.5% level.
