Cholinesterase inhibitory activities of some flavonoid derivatives and chosen xanthone and their molecular docking studies.

Chem Biol Interact 2009 Oct 9;181(3):383-9. Epub 2009 Jul 9.

Department of Pharmacology, Institute of Medical Biology, University of Tromsø, 9037 Tromsø, Norway.

Flavonoids are one of the largest classes of plant secondary metabolites and are known to possess a number of significant biological activities for human health. In this study, we examined in vitro acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitory activities of four flavonoid derivatives--quercetin, rutin, kaempferol 3-O-beta-D-galactoside and macluraxanthone. The in vitro results showed that quercetin and macluraxanthone displayed a concentration-dependant inhibition of AChE and BChE. Read More

Cytotoxic xanthones from Garcinia penangiana Pierre.

Z Naturforsch C J Biosci 2007 Nov-Dec;62(11-12):786-92

Laboratory of Natural Products, Institute of Bioscience, University Putra Malaysia, 43400 Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Two new xanthones, characterized as 4-(1,1-dimethylprop-2-enyl)-1,3,5,8-tetrahydroxyxanthone (1) and penangianaxanthone (2), with three known xanthones, cudratricusxanthone H (3), macluraxanthone C (4) and gerontoxanthone C (5), as well as friedelin and stigmasterol were isolated from the leaves of Garcinia penangiana. Their structures were elucidated by analysis of spectroscopic data and comparison of the NMR data with the literature ones. Significant cytotoxicity against DU-145, MCF-7 and NCI-H460 cancer cell lines was demonstrated by compounds 1-5, with IC50 values ranging from 3. Read More

Isoprenylated xanthones and flavonoids from Cudrania tricuspidata.

Chem Biodivers 2005 Jan;2(1):131-8

Department of Pharmacognosy, School of Pharmacy, Fudan University, 138 Yi Xue Yuan Road, Shanghai 200032, People's Republic of China.

Further phytochemical investigation on the roots of Cudrania tricuspidata afforded a new isoprenylated xanthone, cudratricusxanthone I (1), two new isoprenylated flavanones, cudraflavanones C and D (2 and 3, resp.), and seven known compounds, 1,7-dihydroxy-3,6-dimethoxyxanthone (4), macluraxanthone C (5), cudraxanthones E, K, and L (6, 7, and 8, resp.), cudraflavanone A (9), and cudraflavone C (10).

Novel methods to extract flavanones and xanthones from the root bark of Maclura pomifera.

J Chromatogr A 2005 Jan;1062(2):175-81

Departamento de Químicas da Universidade de Evora, Portugal.

A comparison between the extraction yields of xanthones and flavanones from the root bark of the Maclura pomifera by solid-liquid extraction (SLE), matrix solid phase dispersion (MSPD), and an alternative method using sea sand as a sample disruptor, is presented here. Two extraction solvents were used for all extraction techniques, dichloromethane and methanol:water, (9:1, v/v). The extraction procedures were reproducible as the R. Read More

Cytotoxic isoprenylated xanthones from Cudrania tricuspidata.

Bioorg Med Chem 2004 Apr;12(8):1947-53

Department of Pharmacognosy, School of Pharmacy, Fudan University, 138 Yi Xue Yuan Road, Shanghai 200032, People's Republic of China.

Eight new isoprenylated xanthones, cudratricusxanthones A-H (1-8), were isolated from the roots of Cudrania tricuspidata, together with ten known compounds, cudraxanthones H (9) and M (10), xanthone V(1a) (11), toxyloxanthone C (12), macluraxanthone B (13), 1-hydroxy-3, 6, 7-trimethoxyxanthone (14), cycloartocarpesin (15), artocarpesin (16), cudraflavone B (17), and kaempferol (18). Their structures were characterized by spectroscopic methods. Xanthones 5, 7, 10, and 12 showed inhibitory effects on four kinds of human digestive apparatus tumor cell lines (HCT-116, SMMC-7721, SGC-7901, and BGC-823) with IC(50) values of 1. Read More

In vitro inhibitory effect of rubraxanthone isolated from Garcinia parvifolia on platelet-activating factor receptor binding.

Planta Med 2002 Dec;68(12):1133-4

Department of Pharmacy, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Rubraxanthone and isocowanol isolated from Garcinia parvifolia Miq. were investigated for their inhibitory effects on platelet-activating factor (PAF) binding to rabbit platelets using 3H-PAF as a ligand. Rubraxanthone showed a strong inhibition with IC 50 value of 18. Read More

Inhibitory effects of xanthones on platelet activating factor receptor binding in vitro.

J Ethnopharmacol 2001 May;75(2-3):287-90

Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz, 50300, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Nine naturally occurring xanthones were investigated for their platelet activating factor (PAF) receptor binding inhibitory effects using rabbit platelets. 2-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-1,3,5-trihydoxyxanthone, macluraxanthone, 1,3,5-trihydroxy-6,6'-dimethylpyrano(2',3':6,7)-4-(1,1-dimethylprop-2-enyl)xanthone, 6-deoxyjacareubin and 2-(3-methylbut-2-enyl)-1,3,5,6-terahydroxyxanthone showed strong inhibition with IC50 values of 4.8, 11.
