The root of Boesenbergia rotunda, a culinary plant commonly known as fingerroot, has previously been reported to possess anti-obesity activity, with four flavonoids identified as active principles, including pinostrobin, panduratin A, cardamonin, and isopanduratin A. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the antiadipogenic potential of isopa...
Obesity is a critical factor for chronic metabolic syndromes. The culinary plant fingerroot (Boesenbergia rotunda) has been reported for its anti-obesity activity. The anti-adipogenic effects of pandurantin A, a main component of fingerroot cultivated in Indonesia, have been studied. Nevertheless, the suppressive effect and related mechanisms of pi...
Four new phenanthrene derivatives, gastrobellinols A-D (1–4), were isolated from the methanolic extract of Gastrochilus bellinus (Rchb.f.) Kuntze, along with eleven known phenolic compounds including agrostophyllin (5), agrostophyllidin (6), coniferyl aldehyde (7), 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (8), agrostophyllone (9), gigantol (10), 4-(methoxylmethyl)phe...
The phytochemical investigation of Huberantha jenkinsii resulted in the isolation of two new and five known compounds. The new compounds were characterized as undescribed 8-oxoprotoberberine alkaloids and named huberanthines A and B, whereas the known compounds were identified as allantoin, oxylopinine, N-trans-feruloyl tyramine, N-trans-p-coumaroy...
Purpose: To examine the glucose uptake stimulatory activity of the root extract of Cissus javana DC. (Vitaceae) in L6 myotubes of rat, and also to identify the extract’s active principles. Methods: The methanol extract was prepared from Cissus javana tuberous roots and evaluated for glucose uptake stimulatory effects on L6 rat muscle cells and in...
A methanolic extract from the dried root of Dendrobium christyanum Rchb.f. (Orchidaceae) exhibited α-glucosidase inhibitory activity and glucose uptake stimulatory effect. Chromatographic separation of the extract led to the isolation of 13 phenolic compounds (1-13). Their structures were determined by spectroscopic analysis. The isolates were then...
