Four new fatty acid esters have been isolated from Feces Trogopterus. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic and chemical methods to be bis(7-hydroxyheptyl) icosanedioate (1), bis(7-hydroxyheptyl) heptadecanedioate (2), bis(7-hydroxyheptyl) decanedioate (3), and bis(7-hydroxyheptyl) octanedioate (4). In the anticoagulative assay, compounds 3 and 4 had significant antithrombin activity.

    ABSTRACT: Chemical investigation of Trogopterus faeces has led to the isolation of seven flavonoids. Their structures were elucidated by chemical and spectral analyses. In an anticoagulative assay, three kaempferol coumaroyl rhamnosides had significant antithrombin activity. This is the first report on the occurrence of flavonoid glycosides in Trogopterus faeces.

    ABSTRACT: Chemical investigation of Semen Persicae has led to the isolation of decane (1), triolein (2), nonacosanoic acid (3), oleic acid ethyl ester (4), palmitic acid (5), oleic acid (6) and 15,16-dihydroxy-9Z,12Z-octadecadienoic acid 2,3-dihydroxypropyl ester (7). Amongst these, compound 7 is a new lipid. Their structures were elucidated by chemical and extensive spectral analysis. Their anticoagulative activities were also evaluated in vitro, which showed that petroleum ether extract and compounds 5-6 could significantly prolong thrombin time while methanol extract could obviously inhibit platelet aggregation.

    ABSTRACT: Two new fatty alcohols named as (7S,8R,11S)-nonacosanetriol (1) and (10R,12R,15S)-nonacosanetriol (2), along with eight known compounds including ginkgolic acid (3), hydroginkgolic acid (4), sciadopitysin (5), ginkgetin (6), isoginkgetin (7), ginkgolide A (8), ginkgolide B (9) and ginkgolide C (10) have been isolated from the petroleum ether extract of Ginkgo biloba sarcotesta. Their structures were elucidated by means of chemical and extensive spectroscopic analysis. The absolute stereochemistry of compounds 1 and 2 was elucidated on the spectroscopic analysis of the R- and S-MTPA esters. Compounds 1 and 2 exhibited slight activity of antithrombin and moderate activity of antiplatelet aggregation in vitro. This was the first report regarding the anticoagulative activities of biflavonoids in G. biloba, and isoginkgetin (7) showed significant antithrombin and antiplatelet aggregation activity.
