Triterpene saponins from Cyclamen persicum.Nat Prod Commun. 2010 Jul; 5(7):1023-5.NP
A new triterpene saponin 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 --> 4)-alpha-L-arabinopyranosyl-16alpha-hydroxy-13beta,28-epoxy-oleanan-30-al (1), along with four known triterpene glycosides (2-5) were isolated from Cyclamen persicum. Their structures were characterized by a combination of 1D- and 2D-NMR (1H-1H COSY, TOCSY, NOESY, HSQC, and HMBC) and MS spectrocopic data. The cytotoxicity of compounds 2 and 4 was evaluated using two human colon cancer cell lines HT-29 and HCT 116.
