A reinvestigation of Strychnos icaja roots has resulted in the isolation, from the EtOAC extract, of one tertiary trisindole alkaloid, named strychnohexamine. Its structure has been investigated by means of spectroscopic data interpretation (UV. IR. HRESIMS. 1D and 2D NMR). This is the first time that a natural trimeric indolomonoterpenic alkaloid has been isolated directly from a plant species. This compound is one of the largest alkaloids ever discovered.

The isolation and identification of major phenylpropanoid esters from Marrubium vulgare: (+) (E)-caffeoyl-L-malic acid 1, acteoside 2, forsythoside B 3, arenarioside 4, ballotetroside 5, as well as their anti-inflammatory activity are reported for the first time, We evaluated the inhibitory effects of these five compounds on cyclooxygenase (Cox) catalysed prostaglandin biosynthesis activity. Only the glycosidic phenylpropanoid esters showed an inhibitory activity towards the Cox-2 enzyme and three of them: acteoside 2, forsythoside B 3, arenarioside 4, exhibited higher inhibitory potencies on Cox-2 than on Cox-1. These results are of interest, as Cox-2 is mainly associated with inflammation and the Cox-1 inhibition with adverse side effects often observed with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The occurence of these phenylpropanoid esters could also explain some other pharmacological properties of M. vulgare. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Two new 3-deoxyanthocyanidins, 6,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxy-5-methoxyflavylium and 6,7,4'-trihydroxy-5-methoxyflavylium, and the pigment carajurin, which has been previously identified, were isolated from dried leaves of Arrabidaea chica, a creeper native to the American tropics. The structures of the components were elucidated by H-1- and C-13-NMR spectroscopy and HPLC-MS, including X-ray crystallographic analysis for carajurin. Copyright (C) 2002 John Wiley Sons, Ltd.

Two new quaternary indole alkaloids 5',6'-dehydroguiachrysine (1) and 5',6'-dehydroguiaflavine (2) were isolated from Strychnos guianensis stem bark. Their structures were determined by analysis of spectral data. Their inhibitory effects on neuromuscular transmission are also reported and compared to that of other quaternary alkaloids. [less ▲]

Eight naturally occurring monoindole alkaloids were evaluated in vitro for their ability to inhibit Plasmodium falciparum growth and, in drug combination, to reverse the resistance of a chloroquine-resistant strain of Plasmodium falciparum. None of these indole alkaloids has significant intrinsic antiplasmodial activity (IC(50) > 10 microM or 5 microg/ml). Nevertheless, three alkaloids (icajine, isoretuline and strychnobrasiline) did reverse chloroquine resistance at concentrations between 2.5 and 25 microg/ml (IF of 12.82 for isoretuline on W2 strain). The Interaction Factor (IF) equals 2, < 2, or > 2 for additive, antagonistic or synergistic effects of alkaloids on chloroquine inhibition, respectively. Icajine and isoretuline were also assessed in vitro for their mefloquine potentiating activity on a mefloquine-resistant strain of Plasmodium falciparum. Only icajine proved to be synergistic with mefloquine (IF = 15.38). [less ▲]

The enzymatic glucose cleavage of palicoside revealed the biosynthetic pathway to akagerine, whereas the conversion of dolichantoside led to a new quaternary heteroyohimbine alkaloid named N(b)-methyl-21-beta-hydroxy-mayumbine. The hypothetical models of reactions occurring after the conversion of both substrates are proposed. Dolichantoside and palicoside, as well as Strychnos mellodora stem bark crude ethanol extract, exhibit significant antimycotic activity against human pathogens in presence of specific glucosidase.

A reinvestigation of Strychnos icaja roots has resulted in the isolation of two tertiary quasi-symmetric bisindole alkaloids named strychnogucines A (1) and B (2). Their structures were identified by means of spectroscopic data interpretation. Compound 2 was highly active in vitro and compound 1 moderately active against four strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Strychnogucine B (2) was more active against a chloroquine-resistant strain than against a chloroquine-sensitive one (best CI(50), 80 nM against the W2 strain). In addition, this compound showed a selective antiplasmodial activity with 25-180 times greater toxicity toward P. falciparum, relative to cultured human cancer cells (KB) or human fibroblasts (WI38).
