|Non-glycosidic iridoids from Cymbaria mongolica.[Pubmed: 11853749]|
METHODS AND RESULTS:
Six non-glycosidic iridoids, i.e. (1R,4S,4aS,7S,7aS)-7-hydroxyl-4-hydroxy- methyl-7-methyl-1-methoxyl-1,4,4a,7a-tetrahydrocyclopenta[e]pyran-3-one (1), (1S,4R,4aS,7S,7aS)-7-hydroxyl-4-hydroxymethyl-7-methyl-1-methoxyl-1,4,4a,7a-tetrahydrocyclopenta[e]pyran-3-one (2), (1R,4R,4aS,7S,7aS)-7-hydroxyl-4-hydroxy-methyl-7-methyl-1-methoxyl-1,4,4a,7a-tetrahydrocyclopenta[e]pyran-3-one (3), (1R, 4R, 4aS, 7aS)-4,7-dihydroxymethyl-1-methoxyl-1,4,4a,7a-tetrahydrocyclopenta-6-ene[e]pyran-3-one (4), (1R, 4R, 4aS, 7aS)-4,7-dihydroxymethyl-1-hydroxyl-1,4,4a, 7a-tetrahydrocyclopenta-6-ene[e]pyran-3-one (5), (1R, 4S, 4aS, 7aS)-4,7-dihydroxy-methyl-1-methoxyl-1,4,4a,7a-tetrahydrocyclopenta-6-ene[e]pyran-3-one (6), as well as five known non-glycosidic iridoids mussaenin A (7), gardendiol (8), Isoboonein (9), 4-epi-alyxialactone (10) and rehmaglutin D (11) have been isolated from the Chinese medicinal plant Cymbaria mongolica. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods.
These compounds exhibit significant antitumor and antibacterial activity.
