[Chemical constituents from the roots of Pithecellobium lucidum and their cytotoxic activity].Zhongguo Zhong Yao Za Zhi. 2011 Jul; 36(13):1769-71.ZZ
Six compounds were isolated from the roots of Pithecellobium lucidum by various chromatograhic techniques such as column chromatography on silica gel and Sephadex LH-20, and preparative HPLC, and their structures were elucidated as julibroside A2 (1), 3-[ (2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranosyl) oxy] -16alpha-hydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid (2), galloyl acid (3), ethyl gallate (4), (+)-catechin (5), (-)-gallocatechin gallate (6) on the basis of spectrascopic data analysis. Compounds 1-6 were isolated from Pithecellobium lucidum for the first time. Compound 2 showed selective cytoxic activity against the human cell lines A2780 with an IC50 value of 1.72 micromol x L(-1).
