    ABSTRACT: Twenty-seven diterpenes of six chemical classes, including seven new diterpenes (1, 2, 6, 10, 11, 16, and 19), have been isolated from a collection of the brown alga Dictyota plectens from the South China Sea. The structures of the new diterpenes were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analysis and by comparison with reported data. In the in vitro assays, 9, 12, 14, 16, and 22 showed inhibitory activity against HIV-1 replication with IC50 values of 16.1-30.5 μM, compounds 5, 13, 24, and 26 exhibited anti-H5N1 activity with inhibition rates of 50%-62% at 30.0 μM, and 12 and 24 also showed potent inhibition against LPS-induced NO production with inhibition rates of 90% and 86%, respectively, at 10.0 μM.

    ABSTRACT: Curcumolide, a novel sesquiterpenoid with a unique 5/6/5 tricyclic skeleton, was isolated from Curcuma wenyujin. The structure and absolute configuration were elucidated by extensive NMR, ECD data analysis, and a single-crystal X-ray study. This molecule exhibited significant anti-inflammatory effects in LPS-induced RAW 264.7 macrophages. It suppressed LPS-induced NF-κB activation, including the nuclear translocation and DNA binding activity of NF-κB, and decreased tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-1β (IL-1β), nitric oxide (NO) and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. Therefore, Curcumolide may have therapeutic potential for treating inflammatory diseases by inhibiting NF-κB activation and pro-inflammatory mediator production. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

    ABSTRACT: Chemical examination of a South China Sea soft coral Lobophytum sp. led to the isolation of three new α-methylene-γ-lactone-containing cembranoids, (1R*,3R*, 4R*,14R*,7E,11E)-3,4-epoxycembra-7,11,15(17)-trien-16,14-olide (1), (1R*,7S*,14S*,3E, 11E)-7-hydroperoxycembra-3,8(19),11,15(17)-tetraen-16,14-olide (2), and (1R*,7S*,14S*, 3E,11E)-18-acetoxy-7-hydroperoxycembra-3,8(19),11,15(17)-tetraen-16,14-olide (3), along with eleven known analogues 4-14. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated through extensive spectroscopic analysis, including 1D and 2D NMR data. Compounds 1-3 exhibited moderate cytotoxic activity against the selected tumor cell lines. Moreover, 2 and 3 were found to be moderate inhibitors against the bacteria S. aureus and S. pneumoniae.

    ABSTRACT: To study the chemical constituents of Hemsleya chensnsis. Various chromatographic techniques were used to separate and purify the constituents. The spectral data (MS, NMR) were obtained for structure elucidation. Eight known triterpenoid saponins were isolated from the root of H. chensnsis. Their structures were elucidated as dihydrocucurbitacin B (1), 25-O-acetyl-dihydrocucurbitacin F (2), cucurbitacin F (3), 3-O-(6'-ethyl ester) -beta-D-glucuropyranosyl oleanolic acid-28-O-alpha-L-arabinopyranoside (4), oleanolic acid-3-(6'-methyl ester) -beta-D-glucuropyranosyl (1-3) -alpha-L-arabinopyranoside (5), oleanolic acid-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-6) -beta-D-glucopyranoside (6), 3-O-(6'-methyl ester) -beta-D-glucuropyranosyl oleanolic acid-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-6) -beta-D-glucopyranoside (7), 3-O-(6'-methyl ester) -beta-D-glucuropyranosyl (1-2) -beta-D-glucopyranoside-oleanolic acid-28-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (8). All compounds except for 2 were isolated from H. chensnsis for the first time.

    ABSTRACT: Angiogenesis plays an important role in many physiological and pathological processes. Identification of small molecules that block angiogenesis and are safe and affordable has been a challenge in drug development. Hypericum attenuatum Choisy is a Chinese herb medicine commonly used for treating hemorrhagic diseases. The present study investigates the anti-angiogenic effects of quercetin-4'-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (QODG), a flavonoid isolated from Hypericum attenuatum Choisy, in vivo and in vitro, and clarifies the underlying mechanism of the activity. Tg(fli1:EGFP) transgenic zebrafish embryos were treated with different concentrations of quercetin-4'-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (QODG) (20, 60, 180 µM) from 6 hours post fertilisation (hpf) to 72 hpf, and adult zebrafish were allowed to recover in different concentrations of QODG (20, 60, 180 µM) for 7 days post amputation (dpa) prior morphological observation and angiogenesis phenotypes assessment. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) were treated with or without VEGF and different concentrations of QODG (5, 20, 60, 180 µM), then tested for cell viability, cell migration, tube formation and apoptosis. The role of VEGFR2-mediated signaling pathway in QODG-inhibited angiogenesis was evaluated using quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) and Western blotting. Quercetin-4'-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (QODG) was shown to inhibit angiogenesis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in vitro and zebrafish in vivo via suppressing VEGF-induced phosphorylation of VEGFR2. Our results further indicate that QODG inhibits angiogenesis via inhibition of VEGFR2-mediated signaling with the involvement of some key kinases such as c-Src, FAK, ERK, AKT, mTOR and S6K and induction of apoptosis. Together, this study reveals, for the first time, that QODG acts as a potent VEGFR2 kinase inhibitor, and exerts the anti-angiogenic activity at least in part through VEGFR2-mediated signaling pathway.

    ABSTRACT: A sensitive and selective liquid chromatography mass spectrometry method for determination of curdione in rabbit plasma was developed. After addition of tramadol as internal standard (IS), protein precipitation by acetonitrile was used for sample preparation. Chromatographic separation was achieved on a Zorbax SB-C₁₈ (2.1 × 50 mm, 3.5 µm) column with acetonitrile-0.1% formic acid as mobile phase with gradient elution. An electrospray ionization source was applied and operated in positive-ion mode; selective ion monitoring was used for quantification using target fragment ions m/z 237 for curdione and m/z 264 for the IS. Calibration plots were linear over the range of 20-4000 ng/mL for curdione in plasma. The lower limit of quantification for curdione was 20 ng/mL. Mean recovery of curdione from plasma was in the range 94.3-98.4%. The RSD of intra-day and inter-day precision were both less than 9%. This method is simple and sensitive enough to be used in pharmacokinetic research for the determination of curdione in rabbit plasma.
