Effect of culture conditions on the biosynthesis of gagaminine, a potent antioxidant from the roots of Cynanchum wilfordii. (1/18)

Gagaminine, a steroidal alkaloid isolated from the roots of Cynanchum wilfordii, exhibited potent inhibitory effects on the aldehyde oxidase activity and lipid peroxidation. To find a possible means of mass production of this active component, which will be useful for animal tests, we synthesized it by an in vitro culture method using various growth conditions. Calli were induced from the explants of this medicinal plant and cultivated under culture conditions which varied in light, and the kinds and concentration of plant growth regulators. The production of gagaminine was found to be significantly higher in the dark than in the light. The best gagaminine content (0.960%) was obtained after cultivation of stems on the medium containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D, 2.0 mg/l) only. However, gagaminine was not detected by the mixture of 2,4-D and kinetin, while the mixtures of 2,4-D/zeatin and 2,4-D/6-benzylaminopurine produced a low content of gagaminine (<0.4%). In addition, suspension medium was much better for the formation of gagaminine than solid medium with an increase from 0.960 to 2.227% yield. These results suggest that gagaminine can be produced massively by in vitro culture using stems under the conditions of dark and 2,4-D on liquid medium.  (+info)

New pregnane glycosides from Cynanchum ascyrifolium. (2/18)

Two new pregnane glycosides, cynascyrosides D and E, were isolated from the roots of Cynanchum ascyrifolium. The structures of these compounds were determined on the basis of spectroscopic and chemical evidence as cynajapogenin A 3-O-alpha-L-cymaropyranosyl-(1-->4)-beta-D-digitoxopyranosyl-(1-->4)-beta-L-cymar opyranoside and cynajapogenin A 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->4)-alpha-L-diginopyranosyl-(1-->4)-beta-L-cymaropy ranosyl-(1-->4)-beta-D-digitoxopyranoside.  (+info)

The effect of Gongronema latifolium extracts on serum lipid profile and oxidative stress in hepatocytes of diabetic rats. (3/18)

Diabetes is known to involve oxidative stress and changes in lipid metabolism. Many secondary plant metabolites have been shown to possess antioxidant activities, improving the effects of oxidative stress on diabetes. This study evaluated the effects of extracts from Gongronema latifolium leaves on antioxidant enzymes and lipid profile in a rat model of non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). The results confirmed that the untreated diabetic rats were subjected to oxidative stress as indicated by significantly abnormal activities of their scavenging enzymes (low superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxide activities), compared to treated diabetic rats, and in the extent of lipid peroxidation (high malondialdehyde levels) present in the hepatocytes. The ethanolic extract of G. latifolium leaves possessed antioxidant activity as shown by increased superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase activities and decreases in malondialdehyde levels. High levels of triglycerides and total cholesterol, which are typical of the diabetic condition, were also found in our rat models of diabetes. The ethanolic extract also significantly decreased triglyceride levels and normalized total cholesterol concentration.  (+info)

New triterpenoid saponins from Stelmatocrypton khasianum. (4/18)

Four new triterpenoid saponins, designated as stelmatotriterpenosides E-H (1-4), together with three known compounds, asterbatanoside B (5), 2alpha,3beta,19alpha,23-tetrahydroxy-olean-12-en-28-oic acid-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl ester (6) and 2alpha,3beta,19alpha,23-tetrahydroxy-urs-12-en-28-oic acid-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl ester (7), were isolated from the stems of Stelmatocrypton khasianum. On the basis of chemical and spectral evidence, the structures of 1-4 were established as 2alpha,3beta,23-trihydroxy-olean-12-en-28-oic acid-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->6)-beta-D-glucopyr anosyl ester (1), 2alpha,3beta,23-trihydroxy-urs-12-en-28-oic acid-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->6)-beta-D-glucopyr anosyl ester (2), 2alpha,3beta,19alpha-trihydroxy-urs-12-en-28-oic acid-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->2)-beta-D-glucopyr anosyl ester (3), and 2beta,3beta,19alpha-trihydroxy-urs-12-en-24,28-dioic acid-24-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl diester (4).  (+info)

Antiproliferative activity of cardenolides isolated from Streptocaulon juventas. (6/18)

Sixteen cardenolides, two hemiterpenoids, two phenylpropanoids and a phenylethanoid isolated from the roots of Streptocaulon juventas (LOUR.) MERR. were examined for their antiproliferative activity toward three human-derived (HT-1080 fibrosarcoma, lung A549 adenocarcinoma, cervix HeLa adenocarcinoma) and three murine-derived (colon 26-L5 carcinoma, Lewis lung carcinoma, B16-BL6 melanoma) cell lines. The cardenolides selectively and strongly inhibited proliferation of the HT-1080 (IC(50) values, 0.054-1.6 microM) and A549 (IC(50), 0.016-0.65 microM) cell lines. The characteristic morphological changes and ladder-like DNA fragmentation in those cells treated with the cardenolides indicated the antiproliferative activity was due to the induction of apoptosis.  (+info)

Variation in the mating system of Vincetoxicum hirundinaria (Asclepiadaceae) in peripherial island populations. (7/18)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Self-fertility may be selected for in small and isolated plant populations of normally outcrossing species. In addition, adaptations for self-fertility are likely to arise in island populations and in populations that are located at the border of the species range. The mating system of Vincetoxicum hirundinaria (Asclepiadaceae) is examined in island populations that are located at the northern border of the species range. METHODS: Pollination experiments were conducted under glasshouse conditions with plants from four populations. KEY RESULTS: The frequencies of self-fertile individuals were relatively high and did not differ among populations. Cross-pollination resulted in higher fruit set than self-pollination. However, fruit-set from self-pollination and cross-pollination did not differ in the self-fertile individuals. Interestingly, the proportion of aborted fruits was on average higher following cross-pollination than following self-pollination. No differences were observed in seed number or seed mass between self- and cross-pollinated fruits. Pollen tube growth following self- and cross-pollinations was indistinguishable. CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study revealed that V. hirundinaria possess a mixed-mating system in the studied island populations. Evidence was also provided for a late-acting self-incompatibility system commonly observed in Asclepiadaceae. No clear signs of inbreeding depression were observed in the early stages of development.  (+info)

Triterpenoids from swallow roots--a convenient HPLC method for separation. (8/18)

A convenient semi-preparative high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for separating a mixture of triterpenoids (alpha-amyrin, beta-amyrin, and lupeol) and their corresponding acetates from the swallow roots (Decalepis hamiltonii Wight and Arn), which are known to have potential bioactive properties, is described. The swallow roots are found to be one of the richest natural sources for these compounds. The hexane extract of the dried spent root on column chromatography yields mixtures (i.e., triterpenoids and their acetates) containing at least three compounds in each. These could not be further separated using the routine chromatographic techniques, such as classical column chromatography and preparative thin-layer chromatography using various solvent systems. Therefore, the optimal conditions are determined on reversed-phase HPLC for their separation and are characterized using spectral data, particularly by nuclear magnetic resonance with physical and chemical properties.  (+info)

Asclepiadaceae is a former family of flowering plants that is now considered to be part of the larger family Apocynaceae. It was named after Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing, due to the medicinal properties of some of its members. The plants in this family are primarily tropical or subtropical vines, shrubs, and trees that have milky sap and opposite leaves. They are known for their unique flower structure, which includes a corona of fleshy, modified stamens surrounding the central reproductive structures. Some examples of plants that were once classified in Asclepiadaceae include milkweeds (Asclepias spp.), periwinkles (Catharanthus roseus), and mandevillas (Mandevilla spp.).

Gymnema sylvestre is not a medical term, but rather the name of a plant species native to the tropical forests of India and Africa. This woody climbing shrub has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, particularly in Indian Ayurvedic medicine.

In a medical context, Gymnema sylvestre is often referred to as a herbal supplement or botanical medicine. Its leaves contain compounds such as gymnemic acids, which are believed to have various health benefits. Some of the potential medicinal uses of Gymnema sylvestre include:

* Lowering blood sugar levels in people with diabetes
* Reducing inflammation and pain
* Helping with weight loss by suppressing appetite
* Lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels

However, it's important to note that while some small studies have suggested that Gymnema sylvestre may have health benefits, more research is needed to confirm these effects and establish safe and effective dosages. As with any supplement or herbal medicine, it's important to talk to your healthcare provider before taking Gymnema sylvestre to ensure that it's safe for you and won't interact with any medications you may be taking.

"Asclepias" is a genus of plants in the dogbane family (Apocynaceae). It includes several species commonly known as milkweeds. These plants are native to North America and are known for their milky sap and clusters of pink, yellow, or white flowers. Some species of Asclepias are important host plants for the monarch butterfly, which lays its eggs on the leaves and uses the sap to fuel its migration.

'Calotropis' is a genus of flowering plants in the family Apocynaceae, also known as milkweeds or crownflowers. There are two main species within this genus: Calotropis procera and Calotropis gigantea. These plants are native to tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Australia. They have large, showy flowers and produce a milky sap that contains latex. Some parts of these plants, such as the roots and leaves, have been used in traditional medicine for various purposes, including treating skin conditions, inflammation, and pain. However, it is important to note that all parts of Calotropis plants contain toxic compounds and can cause serious side effects if ingested or applied improperly. Therefore, they should only be used under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional.

Pregnanes are a class of steroid hormones and steroids that contain a pregnane nucleus, which is a steroid core with a carbon skeleton consisting of 21 carbons. This structure includes four fused rings, labeled A through D, and is derived from cholesterol.

Pregnanes are important precursors for the synthesis of various steroid hormones in the body, including progesterone, which plays a crucial role in maintaining pregnancy and regulating the menstrual cycle. Other examples of pregnanes include cortisol, a stress hormone produced by the adrenal gland, and aldosterone, a hormone that helps regulate electrolyte balance and blood pressure.

It's worth noting that pregnanes can also refer to synthetic compounds that contain this steroid nucleus and are used in various medical and research contexts.

Glycosides are organic compounds that consist of a glycone (a sugar component) linked to a non-sugar component, known as an aglycone, via a glycosidic bond. They can be found in various plants, microorganisms, and some animals. Depending on the nature of the aglycone, glycosides can be classified into different types, such as anthraquinone glycosides, cardiac glycosides, and saponin glycosides.

These compounds have diverse biological activities and pharmacological effects. For instance:

* Cardiac glycosides, like digoxin and digitoxin, are used in the treatment of heart failure and certain cardiac arrhythmias due to their positive inotropic (contractility-enhancing) and negative chronotropic (heart rate-slowing) effects on the heart.
* Saponin glycosides have potent detergent properties and can cause hemolysis (rupture of red blood cells). They are used in various industries, including cosmetics and food processing, and have potential applications in drug delivery systems.
* Some glycosides, like amygdalin found in apricot kernels and bitter almonds, can release cyanide upon hydrolysis, making them potentially toxic.

It is important to note that while some glycosides have therapeutic uses, others can be harmful or even lethal if ingested or otherwise introduced into the body in large quantities.
