Camellianoside, a novel antioxidant glycoside from the leaves of Camellia japonica.Biosci Biotechnol Biochem. 2006 Aug; 70(8):1995-8.BB
A novel flavonol glycoside named camellianoside and three known flavonol glycosides were isolated from the leaves of Camellia japonica. The structure of camellianoside was established as quercetin-3-O-beta-D-xylopyranosyl-(1-->3)-O-alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->6)-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside by spectroscopic and chemical methods. The antioxidant activities of these glycosides evaluated by the diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging reaction was higher than those of L-cysteine and L-ascorbic acid used as the reference antioxidants.
