Phytochemical investigation of the seeds of Turraeanthus africanus (Meliaceae), a Cameroonian plant species traditionally used in the treatment of typhoid fever, afforded eight compounds, including two labdanes, a C-arabinoside derivative, a sesquiterpene, and several triterpenes, two of which are new: 15',16'-dihydroxy-15(12'),15'(16')-diolidebislabd-8(17),8'(17'),12-trien-16-al ( 1), trivially named turrealabdane and a C-arabinoside derivative ( 2), trivially named turreanone. The other…

A New bis-Labdane and Other Secondary Metabolites from Turraeanthus mannii
From the dichloromethane–methanol (1:1) extract of the seeds of Turraeanthus mannii (Meliaceae), a new bis-labdane diterpenoid, namely
Terpenoids from Turraeanthus species
Chemical investigation of the root bark of Turraeanthus mannii and the stem of T. longipes resulted in the isolation of two new diterpenes, 13-methyl-labda-8(17)-en-15-oic acid (1) and
Cameroonian medicinal plants: a bioactivity versus ethnobotanical survey and chemotaxonomic classification
It can be verified that a phytochemical search of active secondary metabolites, which is inspired by knowledge from the ethnobotanical uses of medicinal plants could be very vital in a drug discovery program from plant-derived bioactive compounds.
Diterpenoids of terrestrial origin.
This review covers the isolation and chemistry of diterpenoids from terrestrial as opposed to marine sources and includes labdanes, clerodanes, abietanes, pimaranes, kauranes, cembranes and their cyclization products.
Effect of Educational Program on Improving Mothers' Performance towards Children with Typhoid Fever at Zagazig City
Evidence is provided that after implementation of the educational intervention mothers' knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding typhoid fever improved with highly statistically significant differences.


Novel antimicrobial diterpenoids from Turraeanthus africanus.
The dichloromethane-methanol (1/1) extract of the stem bark of Turraeanthus africanus (Meliaceae) showed remarkable antimicrobial activity against Cryptococcus neoformans, Staphylococcus aureus and
A Pregnane Derivative and an Anti-plasmodial Labdane Diterpenoid from the Stem Bark of Turraenthus Africanus
Chemical investigation of the stem bark of Turraeanthus africanus (Meliaceae) afforded a new pregnane derivative, 17α,20S-dihydroxypregn-4-ene-3,16-dione, named turraeasterodione, together with three
Five new labdane diterpenes from Aster oharai.
Five new labdane diterpenes together with seven known diter penes have been isolated from a methanol extract of the aerial parts of Aster oharai, showing moderate cytotoxicity against human tumor cell lines.
Alvaradoins A-D. Anthracenone C arabinosides from alvaradoa jamaicensis
The aerial parts of Alvaradoa jamaicensis have yielded four new compounds. These are both C-10 epimers of 10-C-[4'-O-acetyl-3'-O-(3-methylbut-2-enoyl)]-beta-D-arabinopyranosyl
Bioactive labdane diterpenoids from Renealmia alpinia collected in the Suriname rainforest.
A collaborative program to discover potential pharmaceuticals in the rainforest of Suriname and the plant Renealmia alpinia was selected for investigation based on its ethnomedical use as a febrifuge, but testing in the yeast Sc-7 assay gave a positive response, indicative of cytotoxic activity.
In vitro Antibacterial Activity of Alchornea cordifolia Bark Extract Against Salmonella Species Causing Typhoid Fevers
Four extracts of Alchornea cordifolia (Schumach.) Mull. Arg. (Euphorbiaceae) bark, including aqueous, methanol, acetone and hexane extracts, were tested for their antibacterial activities against
Isolation of ent-labdane (+)-12,15-epoxylabda-8(17), 12,14-trien-16-yl acetate from the seeds of Turraeanthus africanus and its cytostatic/cytotoxic effect on the growth of cancer cells in vitro
Abstract(+)-12,15-Epoxylabda-8(17),12,14-trien-16-yl acetate has been isolated from the seed kernels of Turraeanthus africanus (Nelw. ex DC). The stereo structure was confirmed by 1D-and 2D-NMR
New ring C-seco limonoids from Brazilian Melia azedarach and their cytotoxic activity.
A methanol extract of the ripe fruits of Melia azedarach collected in Curitiba, Parana, Brazil, afforded seven new ring C-seco limonoid together with three known limonoids, which exhibited significant inhibitory activity against HeLa S3 cancer cells and weak cytotoxicity.
