New vernocuminosides from the stem barks of Vernonia cumingiana Benth.Steroids. 2009 Jan; 74(1):51-61.S
Seven new stigmastane-type steroidal glycosides, vernocuminosides A-G (1-7), have been isolated from the stem barks of Vernonia cumingiana Benth. The structural elucidation and stereochemistry determination were achieved by spectroscopic and chemical methods including 1D and 2D NMR ((1)H-(1)H COSY, HSQC, HMBC, and NOE) experiments, especially the employment of Snatzke's method expressed by the induced circular dichroism spectra. Anti-inflammatory activities and cytotoxicities of compounds 1-7 were evaluated.
