From the MeOH extract of the flowers of Chrysanthemum sinense, a new flavone glucoside, acacetin 7- O-(3- O-acetyl- beta- D-glucopyranoside), has been isolated together with 27 known compounds including flavonoids, caffeoylquinic acid derivatives, phenolics, and a monoterpenoid glucoside. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data. Compounds and displayed significant xanthine oxidase inhibitory activity in a concentration-dependent manner, and compounds and showed more potent inhibitory activity, with IC50 values ranging from 0.13 to 2.31 microM, than that of a positive control allopurinol (IC50=2.50 microM). The kinetic study indicated that and displayed competitive-type inhibition like that of allopurinol, while displayed a mixed-type inhibition.

    ABSTRACT: Caffeoylquinic acids -3,4-di-O-caffeoylquinic acid (1); 1,3,5-tri-O-caffeoylquinic acid (2); and 3,4,5-tri-O-caffeoylqunic acid (3)- were isolated from an acetone-soluble fraction of the aerial parts of Artemisia princes. Their structures were determined spectroscopically using 1D- and 2D-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) studies, as well as by comparing the NMR results with previously published structures. All the isolates were subjected to in vitro bioassays to evaluate their efficacy in inhibiting rat lens aldose reductase (RLAR) activity and the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). We found 1,3,5-tri-O-caffeoylquinic acid (2) to be the most potent AGE inhibitor, and the concentration that resulted in 50% inhibition (IC50) was 22.18 ±1.46 mM, as compared to the aminoguanidine and chlorogenic acid controls, which had IC50 values of 1,093.11±10.95 and 117.63±0.20 mM, respectively. In the RLAR assay, the three caffeoylquinic acids were found to have IC50 values in the range of 1.78-2.40 μM, demonstrating a 5- to 10-fold greater efficacy in RLAR inhibition as compared to the quercetin control, which had an IC50 value of 17.91 μM.

    ABSTRACT: An in vitro bioassay-guide revealed that the methanol (MeOH) extract of the stem bark of Populus davidiana showed considerable inhibitory activity against cyclooxygenase (COX-1, COX-2). Continuous phytochemical study of the MeOH extract of this plant led to the isolation of ten flavonoids; sakuranetin (1), rhamnocitrin (2), 7-O-methylaromadendrin (3), naringenin (4), eriodictyol (5), aromadendrin (6), kaempferol (7), neosakuranin (8), sakuranin (9) and sakurenetin-5,4'-di-beta-D-glucopyranoside (10). Their structures were identified on the basis of their physicochemical and spectroscopic analyses. The isolated compounds, 1-10, were tested for their inhibitory activities against COX-1 and COX-2. Compound 7 was found to have potent inhibitory effect on COX-1 and a moderate effect on COX-2, meanwhile, compounds 1-6 showed moderate inhibition against COX-1 only. Moreover, compounds 5-8 exhibited suppressive effects on xanthine oxidase (XO). These results may explain, in part, the traditional uses of P. davidiana in ethnomedicine.

    ABSTRACT: Xanthine oxidase (XO) is a key enzyme which can catalyze xanthine to uric acid causing hyperuricemia in humans. By using the fractionation technique and inhibitory activity assay, an active compound that prevents XO from reacting with xanthine was isolated from wheat leaf. It was identified by the Mass and NMR as 6-aminopurine (adenine). A structure-activity study based on 6-aminopurine was conducted. The inhibition of XO activity by 6-aminopurine (IC(50)=10.89+/-0.13 microM) and its analogues was compared with that by allopurinol (IC(50)=7.82+/-0.12 microM). Among these analogues, 2-chloro-6(methylamino)purine (IC(50)=10.19+/-0.10 microM) and 4-aminopyrazolo[3,4-d] pyrimidine (IC(50)=30.26+/-0.23 microM) were found to be potent inhibitors of XO. Kinetics study showed that 2-chloro-6(methylamino)purine is non-competitive, while 4-aminopyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine is competitive against XO.
