Abstract A new acylphenol, malabaricone E ( 1 ) together with the known malabaricones A-C ( 2 – 4 ), maingayones A and B ( 5 and 6 ) and maingayic acid B ( 7 ) were isolated from the ethyl acetate extract of the fruits of Myristica cinnamomea King. Their structures were determined by 1D and 2D NMR techniques and LCMS-IT-TOF analysis. Compounds 3 (1.84 ± 0.19 and 1.76 ± 0.21 μM, respectively) and 4 (1.94 ± 0.27 and 2.80 ± 0.49 μM, respectively) were identified as dual inhibitors, with almost equa...

Abstract A dimeric acylphenol and a potent α-glucosidase inhibitor, giganteone D (IC 50 5.05 μM), was isolated and characterized from the bark of Myristica cinnamomea King. The bark also yielded an acylphenol with an unprecedented skeleton for which the name cinnamomeone A (IC 50 358.80 μM) was proposed. Their structures were established by means of NMR and MS spectrometric analyses. The Lineweaver–Burk plot of giganteone D indicated that it was a mixed-type inhibitor. This is the first report o...

Abstract “Pedra hume caa” is the common name of five species of Myrcia genus used as traditional medicine for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. In this study, different extracts from Myrcia salicifolia , Myrcia sphaerocarpa , and Myrcia speciosa were investigated for the first time, to identify their phenolic compounds (being 3- O -rhamnoside derivatives of myricetin and quercetin the major ones) and in vitro inhibitory potential against α-glucosidase and α-amylase. These extracts inhibited 90...

Diabetes mellitus is a serious metabolic disease, affecting people of all geographic, ethnic or racial origin and its prevalence is increasing globally1. Burden from this costly disease is high on the low and middle income countries (LMIC) where the impacts of modernization and urbanization have caused marked adverse changes in lifestyle parameters. In 2013, of the estimated 382 million people with diabetes globally, more than 80 per cent lived in LMIC. It was estimated that India had 65.1 milli...

Abstract Oxadiazoles and thiadiazoles 1 – 37 were synthesized and evaluated for the first time for their α-glucosidase inhibitory activities. As a result, fifteen of them 1 , 4 , 5 , 7 , 8 , 13 , 17 , 23 , 25 , 30 , 32 , 33 , 35 , 36 and 37 were identified as potent inhibitors of the enzyme. Kinetic studies of the most active compounds (oxadiazoles 1 , 23 and 25 , and thiadiazoles 35 and 37 ) were carried out to determine their mode of inhibition and dissociation constants K i . The most potent ...

Abstract Objective α -Glucosidase inhibitors can be used as a new class of antidiabetic drug. By competitively inhibiting glycosidase activity, these inhibitors help to prevent the fast breakdown of sugars and thereby control the blood sugar level. This study provides a wealth of information about α -glucosidase inhibitors isolated from medicinal plants; this knowledge will be useful in finding more potent antidiabetic candidates from the natural resources for the clinical development of antidia...

Abstract α-Glucosidase inhibitors can reduce postprandial plasma glucose levels and suppress postprandial hyperglycemia. Using a fractionation technique and an inhibitory activity assay, four α-glucosidase inhibitors were isolated from the roots of Rhodiola crenulata. Their chemical structures were identified as epicatechin (EC), epicatechin-(4β,8)-epicatechin gallate (B2-3′-O-gallate), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)ethyl 3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoate (HETB) using mass spectrometry...

Abstract α-Glucosidase is a critical associated enzyme with type 2 diabetes mellitus in humans. Inhibition of α-glucosidase is important due to the potential effect of down regulating glucose absorption in patients. In this study, the inhibitory activity of flavone luteolin on α-glucosidase and their interaction mechanism were investigated by multispectroscopic methods along with molecular docking technique. It was found that luteolin reversibly inhibited α-glucosidase in a noncompetitive manner...

Abstract Fucoidan is a water-soluble, negatively charged, biologically active polysaccharide found in great abundance in brown marine algae. However, the inhibition of α-amylase and α-glucosidase by fucoidan derived from two algal species ( Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculosus ) harvested at different periods (accounting for seasonal and yearly variations) has never been investigated. It was found that fucoidans inhibited α-glucosidase differently, depending on the algal species from which ...

The rhizomes of Alpinia pahangensis Ridley yielded a new bis-labdanic diterpene for which the name pahangensin A (1) was proposed along with a new labdane diterpene, pahangensin B (2). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including, 1D and 2D NMR techniques and LCMS-IT-TOF analysis. Pahangensin A (1) was found to be an antibacterial agent against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus and Bacillus subtilis with MIC values less than 100 lg/mL, respectively. Pahangensin B (2) ...
