Rubus species (family Rosaceae) have been cultivated for centuries for their fruits. These and other parts of the plants have been used traditionally for therapeutic purposes. This article highlights these and the potential they can offer. The constituents reported in the various species and those demonstrated to exhibit pharmacological properties have been reviewed. In the search for biologically active compounds, one of the most frequently documented species of the genus is the raspberry plant...

Tea made from the leaves of Rubus idaeus L. (raspberry) has been used for centuries as a folk medicine to treat wounds, diarrhoea, colic pain and as a uterine relaxant. Extracts of dried raspberry leaves prepared with different solvents, (n-hexane, ethyl acetate, chloroform and methanol) were tested in vitro for relaxant activity on transmurally stimulated guinea-pig ileum. The methanol (MeOH) extract exhibited the largest response and also indicated that the active compounds are of a relatively...

Seven triterpenoid phytoalexins were isolated from peel of unripe fruits of nectarine (Prunus persica cv Fantasia) wounded and inoculated with Colletotrichum musae. Two were new triterpenoids, identified as 1β,2α,3α,24-tetrahydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid and 1β,2α,3α,24-tetrahydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid. 2α,3α,24-Trihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid, 2α,3α,24-trihydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid, 2α,3β,24-trihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid, 2α,3α-dihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid, and 2α,3α-dihydroxyurs-1...

Five new triterpenoid saponins, nipponosides A−E (1, 3−6), were isolated from Acanthopanax nipponicus leaves, along with a known saponin, kalopanaxsaponin G (2). Nipponosides A−E were characterized as the 28-O-α-l-rhamnopyranosyl(1→4)-β-d-glucopyranosyl(1→6)-β-d-glucopyranosyl ester of 3-oxohederagenin, oleanolic acid 3-O-β-d-glucopyranoside, gypsogenin 3-O-β-d-glucopyranoside, 3β,23,29-trihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid, and 3β,20α,23-trihydroxy-30-nor-olean-12-en-28-oic acid, respectively. The ...

An investigation on the constituents of the fresh, uncrushed leaves of Eucalyptus camaldulensis var. obtusa has led to the isolation of three new and one known triterpenoids. The new products were characterized by chemical and spectroscopic studies as camaldulic acid (20β-acetoxy-3β-hydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid) (1), camaldulensic acid (3β,30-dihydroxy-11α-methoxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid) (2) and camaldulenic acid (2α,3β-dihydroxyolean-11,13(18)-dien-28-oic acid) (3), whereas the known compound was...

Abstract Two new friedelane-type triterpenes, D:A-friedoolean-24-al-3-en-3-ol-2-on-29-oic acid and D:A-friedoolean-1-en-29-ol-3-one, named as cangoronine and ilicifoline respectively, in addition to seven known friedelane-, pristimerin- and tingenone-type triterpenes have been isolated from Maytenus ilicifolia . The structures were established by spectroscopic and X-ray analyses. The cytotoxic activities of these compounds are also reported.

The beneficial effects of consumption of berry fruits on a range of chronic diseases has been attributed (at least in part) to the presence of unique phytochemicals. Recently, we identified novel ursolic acid-based triterpenoid glycosides (TTPNs) in raspberry fruit and demonstrated their survival in human ileal fluids after feeding which confirmed their colon-availability in vivo. In this paper, in vitro digestion studies demonstrated that certain TTPNs were stable under gastrointestinal conditi...

One new triterpenoid olean-18-ene-1β, 2α, 3β-triol (1) along with four known compounds were isolated from the chloroform extract of the aerial part of Salvia atropatana Bunge. The known compounds were two flavonoids, 5-hydroxy-7,4′-dimethoxyflavone (2) and 5-hydroxy-6,7,4′-trimethoxyflavone (3), an abietane-type diterpene namely taxodione (4) and a phytosterol namely γ -sitosterol (5). The structure of (1) was elucidated by comprehensive spectroscopic analysis including electron ionization-mass ...
