    ABSTRACT: One unusual secoiridoid trimer, namely sweriyunnanlactone A (1), was isolated from Swertia yunnanensis under the guidance of LC–MS analysis. Sweriyunnanlactone A with a phenyl ring (ring F) was the first example of secoiridoid trimer featuring a C28 skeleton. Its structure was determined by extensive HRESIMS, 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic data, and GIAO 13C NMR calculation. Compound 1 showed weak inhibition on HBV DNA replication with an IC50 value of 60.76 μM (SI = 12.6) on HepG 2.2.15 cell line in vitro.

    ABSTRACT: Five new secoiridoid glycosides, swericinctosides A and B (1-2), 9-epi swertiamarin (3), 2'-O-m-hydroxybenzoyl swertiamarin (4), 4''-O-acetyl swertianoside E (5), and one unusual lactonic enol ketone, 3-(hydroxymethyl ene) dihydro-2H-pyran-2, 4(3H)-dione (6), together with three known compounds, swertiaside (7), swertianoside C (8) and decentapicrin B (9) were isolated from Swertia cincta. The structures of the new compounds were determined by extensive spectroscopic analyses including 1D and 2D NMR, HRESIMS, UV, IR and [α]D spectra. Anti-HBV assay on HepG 2.2.15 cell line in vitro demonstrated that compounds 1-9 possessed inhibitory activity on HBV DNA replication with IC50 values from 0.05 to 1.83mM, and compounds 1, 3, 5, 7 and 8 could inhibit the secretion of HBsAg with IC50 values from 0.24 to 1.06mM.

    ABSTRACT: p-Hydroxyacetophenone (p-HAP), as a main hepatoprotective and choleretic constituent of Artemisia capillaris, was revealed with anti-hepatitis B virus (HBV) effects in recent investigation. In addition to p-HAP, four derivatives of p-HAP were also isolated from A. capillaris by various chromatographic methods. Subsequent structural modification on p-HAP and its glycoside led to the synthesis of 28 additional derivatives, of which 13 compounds showed activity inhibiting hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) secretion; and 18 compounds possessed inhibition on HBV DNA replication. The primary structure-activity relationships (SARs) suggested that the conjugated derivatives of p-HAP glycoside and substituted cinnamic acids (2a-2i) obviously enhanced the activity against HBV DNA replication with IC50 values ranged from 5.8 to 74.4μM.

    ABSTRACT: Depressive disorder is a severe psychiatric problem all over the world. Clinical therapeutic agents for the treatment of depression in the market targeting on monoamine neurotransmitters are far from satisfaction due to their adverse effects. Novel classes of antidepressant agents with different mechanisms and low toxicity are needed. Natural products from traditional Chinese medicines have been revealed as new sources to cure the depressive symptoms with various chemical structures and promising activities. This paper reviews natural products as antidepressants documented in Chinese patents so far.

    ABSTRACT: Hepatitis B induced by HBV is a serious health problem. Artemisia capillaris (Yin-Chen) has long been used to treat hepatitis in traditional Chinese medicine. Coumarins, flavonoids and organic acids were revealed as its hepatoprotective and choleretic components, but its anti-HBV active components remain unknown. This current study focused on its anti-HBV active constituents by various chromatographic methods.

    ABSTRACT: Thirty-nine caudatin analogs were designed and synthesized. Their anti-hepatitis B virus (HBV) activities were evaluated in vitro. Among them, twenty-three compounds showed much better anti-HBV activity than caudatin, and eleven compounds significantly inhibited the HBV DNA replication with IC50 values < 10 μΜ. Interestingly, three compounds (22, 28, 29) exhibited excellent activity against the secretion of HBsAg (IC50 = 63.02 μΜ, 52.81 μΜ, 56.08 μΜ), HBeAg (IC50 = 204.80 μΜ, 173.51 μΜ, 70.39 μΜ), along with HBV DNA replication (IC50 = 24.55 μΜ, 5.69 μΜ, 8.23 μΜ) with lower cytotoxicity. The structure-activity relationships (SARs) of these caudatin analogs were also discussed.

    ABSTRACT: 28 Derivatives of panaxadiol (PD) and panaxatriol were synthesized and evaluated for their anti-HBV activity on HepG 2.2.15 cells, of which 17 derivatives inhibited HBV DNA replication. Compounds 4, 9, 10, 14, and 15 showed moderate activity against HBV DNA replication with IC50 values ranged from 7.27 to 28.21 μM compared with PD. In particular, 3-O-2'-thenoyl panaxadiol (4) inhibited not only HBV DNA replication (IC50 = 16.5 μM, SI > 115.7) but also HBsAg (IC50 = 30.8 μM, SI > 62.0) and HBeAg (IC50 = 18.2 μM, SI > 105.14) secretions. Their structure-activity relationships were discussed for guiding future research toward the discovery of new anti-HBV agents.

Interestingly, compound 4e could inhibit not only HBsAg and HBeAg secretions but also HBV DNA replication with SI values of 20.3, 125.0 and 104.9. Furthermore, the most active compound 2c with SI value higher than 165.1 inhibiting HBV DNA replication was revealed with the optimal log P value of 1.78 and log D values. Structure–activity relationships (SARs) of the derivatives were disclosed for guiding the future research toward the discovery of new anti-HBV drugs.

    ABSTRACT: Saniculiphyllum guangxiense as a highly distinctive species within Saxifragaceae is fallen to the critically endangered category, whose chemical and taxonomic information is still little-known. The first time LC-DAD/MSn investigation on S. guangxiense led to the detection and characterization of 50 compounds, involving cyanogenic glycosides, phenolic sulfates, triterpenoids, amino acids, phenyl-propanoids, aromatic derivatives, lignans, flavonoids, nucleosides, fatty acids and carbohydrate, based on their fragmentation characteristics, UV spectra or comparison with the reference compounds. The collision induced dissociation (CID) fragmentation patterns for several types of compounds were also concluded. The main constituents of S. guangxiense were revealed as cyanogenic glycosides, triterpenoids, phenolic sulfates and organic acids, which were very different from other Saxifragaceae plants. This paper will provide valuable information for understanding its chemical profiles and taxonomic position in Saxifragaceae from a chemotaxonomic point of view.
