Background: Phillyrin and (+)-pinoresinol 4-O-β-D-glucoside are the major active furofuran-type lignans in Fructus Forsythiae. The metabolic routes and metabolites of these two lignans are not well understood yet. Objective: In this study, we attempted to identify the human-intestine bacterial metabolites of lignans from Fructus Forsythiae. Materials and Methods: Two natural compounds, phillyrin and (+)-pinoresinol 4-O-β-D-glucoside were incubated with human fecal microflora in an anaerobic… 
Insecticidal Activities Against Odontotermes formosanus and Plutella xylostella and Corresponding Constituents of Tung Meal from Vernicia fordii
TLDR
The results showed that ethyl acetate and petroleum ether extracts showed the strongest toxicity against O. formosanus and P. xylostella, respectively, which confirmed the remarkable insecticidal activity of tung meal and provided a theoretical basis for its development as a potential plant insecticide.
