RESUMO

Polyphenolic enriched extracts from two species of Cyperus, Cyperus glomeratus and Cyperus thunbergii, possess mammalian arginase inhibitory capacities, with the percentage inhibition ranging from 80% to 95% at 100 µg/mL and 40% to 64% at 10 µg/mL. Phytochemical investigation of these species led to the isolation and identification of two new natural stilbene oligomers named thunbergin A-B (1-2), together with three other stilbenes, trans-resveratrol (3), trans-scirpusin A (4), trans-cyperusphenol A (6), and two flavonoids, aureusidin (5) and luteolin (7), which were isolated for the first time from C.thunbergii and C. glomeratus. Structures were established on the basis of the spectroscopic data from MS and NMR experiments. The arginase inhibitory activity of compounds 1-7 was evaluated through an in vitro arginase inhibitory assay using purified liver bovine arginase. As a result, five compounds (1, 4-7) showed significant inhibition of arginase, with IC50 values between 17.6 and 60.6 µM, in the range of those of the natural arginase inhibitor piceatannol (12.6 µM). In addition, methanolic extract from Cyperus thunbergii exhibited an endothelium and NO-dependent vasorelaxant effect on thoracic aortic rings from rats and improved endothelial dysfunction in an adjuvant-induced arthritis rat model.

RESUMO

Stilbenes or stilbenoids, major polyphenolic compounds of the bark of Norway spruce (Picea abies L. Karst), have potential future applications as drugs, preservatives and other functional ingredients due to their antioxidative, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Stilbenes are photosensitive and UV and fluorescent light induce trans to cis isomerisation via intramolecular cyclization. So far, the characterizations of possible new compounds derived from trans-stilbenes under UV light exposure have been mainly tentative based only on UV or MS spectra without utilizing more detailed structural spectroscopy techniques such as NMR. The objective of this work was to study the stability of biologically interesting and readily available stilbenes such as astringin and isorhapontin and their aglucones piceatannol and isorhapontigenin, which have not been studied previously. The effects of fluorescent and UV light and storage on the stability of trans stilbenes were assessed and the identification and characterisation of new compounds formed during our experiments were carried out by chromatographic (HPLC, GC) and spectroscopic techniques (UV, MS, NMR). The stilbenes undergo a trans to cis isomerisation under extended UV irradiation by intramolecular cyclisation (by the formation of a new C-C bond and the loss of two hydrogens) to phenanthrene structures. The characterised compounds are novel and not described previously.

RESUMO

Sophora davidii (Franch.) Skeels is a multi-purpose traditional medicine that has long been used for the treatment of various diseases. To discover the potential bioactive composition of S. davidii, a chemical investigation was thus performed. In this research, two new stilbene oligomers, Davidiol E-F (1-2), one new 4-aryl-substituted isoflavan Davidinin A (3), and one new 2-arylbenzofuran dimer, Shandougenine C (4), as well as six known compounds (5-10) were obtained from the ethyl acetate fraction of Sophora davidii (Franch.) Skeels. The structures of new compounds were established by extensive 1D and 2D nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra with mass spectroscopy data. The absolute configuration of 1-3 was assigned by comparing its experimental and calculated electronic circular dichroism (ECD) spectra. Compounds 1-10 promoted glucose transporter 4 (GLUT-4) translocations by the range of 1.28-2.60 folds, respectively. Compound 9 showed the most potent glucose transporter 4 translocations with 1.60 fold enhancement. The result attained in this study indicated that the separation and characterization of these compounds plays an important role in the research and development of new anti-diabetic drugs and pharmaceutical industry.

RESUMO

Passiflora edulis Sims (passion fruit) seeds are often discarded as byproducts during juice processing. In fact, the seeds are of considerable commercial value in the food and cosmetics industry because of their rich polyphenols, especially piceatannol. In this study, high-speed countercurrent chromatography (HSCCC) was applied for the separation of stilbene polyphenols from passion fruit seeds. The n-hexane-ethyl acetate-methanol-water (1:2:1:2.8, v/v) was found to be the optimum two-phase solvent for the preparation of two major stilbenes, scirpusin B (8) and piceatannol (9) with purities of 90.2% and 94.8%, respectively. In addition, a continuous semipreparative HPLC was applied to further purify the HSCCC fractions containing minor stilbenes and obtain four new piceatannol derivatives (1-4) along with three known ones (5-7). The structures of these new compounds were determined using spectroscopic methods, including NMR, high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HR-ESI-MS), and circular dichroism (CD). The isolated compounds were evaluated for α-glucosidase inhibitory activities in vitro. The result suggested that all of them exhibited more significant activity than acarbose, and passiflorinol B (2) had the strongest activity, with a IC50 value of 1.7 µM.

RESUMO

Sequential extraction and purification stages are required to obtain extracts rich in specific polyphenols. However, both separation processes are often optimized independently and the effect of the integrated process on the global recovery of polyphenols has not been fully elucidated yet. We assessed the impact of hot-pressurized liquid extraction (HPLE) conditions (temperature: 90-150 °C; ethanol concentration: 15%-50%) on the global recovery of specific phenolic acids, flavanols, flavonols and stilbenes from Carménère grape pomace in an integrated HPLE/resin purification (RP) process. HPLE of phenolic acids, flavanols and stilbenes were favored when temperature and ethanol concentration increased, except for chlorogenic acid which showed an increment of its Gibbs free energy of solvation at higher ethanol contents. Ethanol concentration significantly impacted the global yield of the integrated HPLE/RP process. The lower the ethanol content of the HPLE extracts, the higher the recovery of phenolic acids, flavanols and stilbenes after RP, except for flavonols which present more polar functional groups. The best specific recovery conditions were 150 °C and ethanol concentrations of 15%, 32.5% and 50% for phenolic acids, flavanols and stilbenes, and flavonols, respectively. At 150 °C and 32.5% of ethanol, the extracts presented the highest total polyphenol content and antioxidant capacity. The integrated HPLE/RP process allows a selective separation of specific polyphenols and eliminates the interfering compounds, ensuring the safety of the extracts at all evaluated conditions.

RESUMO

Oligostilbenoid compounds, a group of resveratrol multimers, display several anti-microbial activities through the neutralization of cytotoxic oxidants, and by inhibiting essential host and viral enzymes. In our previous study, we identified a series of oligostilbenoid compounds as potent hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication inhibitors. In particular, vitisin B, a resveratrol tetramer, exhibited the most dramatic anti-HCV activity (EC50 = 6 nM and CC50 > 10 µM) via the disruption of the viral helicase NS3 (IC50 = 3 nM). However, its further development as an HCV drug candidate was halted due to its intrinsic drawbacks, such as poor stability, low water solubility, and restricted in vivo absorption. In order to overcome these limitations, we focused on (+)-ε-viniferin, a resveratrol dimer, as an alternative. We prepared three different versions of (+)-ε-viniferin, including one which was extracted from the grapevine root (EVF) and two which were chemically synthesized with either penta-acetylation (SVF-5Ac) or no acetylation (SVF) using a newly established synthesis method. We confirmed their anti-HCV replication activities and minimal cytotoxicity by using genotype 1b and 2a HCV replicon cells. Their anti-HCV replication action also translated into a significant reduction of viral protein expression. Anti-HCV NS3 helicase activity by EVF was also verified in vitro. Finally, we demonstrated that SVF has improved pharmacokinetic properties over vitisin B. Overall, the favorable antiviral and pharmacokinetic properties of these three versions of viniferin warrant their further study as members of a promising new class of anti-HCV therapeutics.

RESUMO

As a traditional natural medicine for treating many kinds of diseases, Gnetum parvifolium showed apparent inhibition on xanthine oxidase (XO). In this study, ultrafiltration combined with liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) is used for the screening of XO inhibitors from Gnetum parvifolium. Their antioxidation, XO inhibition, and enzymic kinetic parameters are also determined. Finally, piceatannol (1), rhaponiticin (2), resveratrol (3), and isorhapontigenin (4) are screened out and identified as XO inhibitors from the extract of Gnetum parvifolium. Four inhibitors show better inhibition than allopurinol and good radical scavenging abilities. However, the antioxidant activities are weaker than ascorbic acid. The kinetic parameters illustrate the inhibition mode of XO by piceatannol is competitive type, while the inhibition modes for rhaponiticin, resveratrol and isorhapontigenin are uncompetitive types. In order to evaluate the difference among samples obtained in China, the amounts of four inhibitors and related activities in 20 samples are assessed and analyzed by partial least squares analysis. The results indicate piceatannol contribute the highest coefficients in three kinds of activities. Based on these findings, more comprehensive research on pharmaceutical and biochemical activities of these four XO inhibitors could be conducted in future.

RESUMO

One unusual resveratrol tetramer, paeonilactiflorol (1), and 14 known compounds (2-15) were isolated from peony seeds ( Paeonia lactiflora) under the guidance of bioassay. Paeonilactiflorol (1) was determined by extensive HRESIMS, UV, IR, 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic analyses. Most of the stilbenes showed obvious inhibition on PTP1B and α-glucosidase, superior to the monoterpene glycosides. Especially, the stilbene tetramer (1) and trimer (8) exhibited high activity inhibiting both PTP1B with IC50 values of 27.23 and 27.81 µM and α-glucosidase with IC50 values of 13.57 and 14.39 µM. Two trans-dimers (4 and 5) also showed dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPPIV) inhibitory activity (55.35% and 61.26%, 500 µM) in addition to PTP1B and α-glucosidase. Enzyme kinetic study indicated that the types of inhibition on PTP1B were noncompetitive for 3 and 5 and mixed for 8 and 10. Quantitative analysis suggested that the stilbene trimers 8 (23.17 ± 0.36 mg/g) and 10 (15.24 ± 0.25 mg/g) were the main contents in peony seeds and should be responsible for the antidiabetic effects. This investigation supports the therapeutic potential of peony seeds in the treatment of diabetes with stilbenes as the active constituents.

RESUMO

Oligostilbenes are polyphenol oligomers derived from resveratrol and are commonly produced by members of the Gnetaceae family, and many researchers have focused on their anti-inflammatory activities. The EtOAc fraction of a Gnetum latifolium extract showed inhibitory activity against neuroinflammation induced by the transfection of Aß1-42 into microglial BV-2 cells. The bioassay-guided isolation of the 70% EtOH extract of this plant resulted in three previously undescribed resveratrol oligostilbenes and ten known stilbene derivatives. The structures of the isolated compounds were established based on extensive NMR spectroscopic analysis. The absolute configurations of the three undescribed compounds were confirmed by comparison with available compounds with known stereochemistry and by ECD calculations and molecular modelling. Latifoliols A and B are the first reported oligostilbenes with a bridged 3-oxabicyclo[3.3.0]octane moiety, and latifoliol C was formed by the condensation of gnemontanin G with oxyresveratrol. Moreover, the hypothetical biogenetic pathway of latifoliols A, B and C was proposed. The potential anti-inflammatory activities of the thirteen isolated compounds were tested by measuring their effect on the secreted NO concentrations induced by transfection with plasmids expressing the Aß1-42 gene in the BV-2 cell line. Interestingly, cis- and trans-shegansu B and latifolol, whose structures contained double bonds, strongly inhibited NO secretion in BV-2 cells, supporting the double binding effect of the stilbene derivative on inhibitory activity.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: The Paeonia ostii T. Hong & J. X. Zhang seed shell, characterised by a high content of oligostilbenes, is one of the two most important by-products in the preparation of seed oil. Oligostilbenes are considered characteristic constituents of the genus Paeonia, and can be used in fingerprinting to determine the geographical origin and the quality of raw materials. OBJECTIVE: To develop and optimise a simple and reproducible high-performance liquid chromatography diode array detection (HPLC-DAD) method for the simultaneous determination of seven oligostilbenes in P. ostii seed shell from different geographical areas, and to associate the cultivation area. METHODOLOGY: A validated HPLC method coupled with a DAD detector was performed for the detection and determination of target compounds in the samples. Optimal chromatographic conditions were achieved using an Agilent Zorbax Eclipse SB-AQ-C18 column and a gradient elution with acetonitrile and potassium dihydrogen phosphate solution. RESULTS: The proposed quantitative method showed appropriate accuracy and precision, and was successfully applied to the routine analysis of seven oligostilbenes and the quality evaluation of 50 P. ostii seed shell samples. There were significant differences between the contents of the seven oligostilbenes in different samples (P < 0.01). CONCLUSION: The results demonstrated that the oligostilbenes were main secondary metabolites in the P. ostii seed shells, and the content of seven components in P. ostii seed shells sourced from different cultivation areas in China was different.

RESUMO

Bloodstains provide admissible information for crime scene investigators. The ability to resolve latent bloodstains that are commonly found in real scenarios is therefore pivotal to public security. Here, we report a facile approach for invisible bloodstain visualization based on the click reaction between serum albumin and tetraphenylethene maleimide (TPE-MI), an aggregation-induced emission luminogen (AIEgen). Compared to the widely adopted methods based on the harsh catalytic oxidation activity of hemoglobin, this working principle benefits from the specificity of the mild catalyst-free thiol-ene click reaction that improves the reliability and resolution. In addition, the mild conditions preserve DNA information and bloodstain patterns, and the excellent photophysical properties of the AIEgen afford high sensitivity and stability (>1 yr). Such an excellent performance cannot be achieved by conventional AIEgens and aggregation-caused quenching luminogens with similar structures. TPE-MI outperforms the benchmark luminol-based technique in visualizing latent bloodstains as showcased in two mock crime scenes: spattered blood track and transfer blood fingerprint. This disclosed method is an advancement in forensic science that could inspire future development of technology for bloodstain visualization.

RESUMO

Bioassay-guided fractionation of the leaves of Macaranga barteri collected from Nigeria led to the isolation of three previously undescribed cytotoxic stilbenes, macabartebenes A-C (1-3), together with six known compounds including prenylated stilbenes: vedelianin (4), schweinfurthin G (5), and mappain (7), prenylated flavonols: 8-prenylkaempferol (6), and broussoflavonol F (8), and the geranylated flavonol, isomacarangin (9). The cytotoxicity of the compounds was evaluated against four human cancer cell lines, with vinblastine as the positive control and DMSO vehicle as the negative control. Vedelianin (IC50 = 0.32-0.54 µM) displayed the greatest antiproliferative activity across the panel of cancer cell lines amongst the compounds, while macabartebene A (IC50 = 0.60-0.79 µM) was the most potent of the previously unreported compounds. The compounds displayed varying selectivity towards the cancer cell lines compared to the normal human prostate cell line. The findings of this study revealed that M. barteri leaves contain several cytotoxic compounds.

Five new compounds including two stilbenes, designated thujasutchins A (1) and B (2), two phenolic compounds namely thujasutchins C (3) and D (4), as well as one sesquiterpene thujasutchin E (5), were isolated from the 95% ethanolic extract from the trunks and roots of Thuja sutchuenensis. Their structures were determined by means of extensively spectroscopic analysis including UV, IR, HRESIMS, 1H and 13C NMR (COSY, HSQC, HMBC). Moreover, compounds 1, 3-5 were evaluated for in vitro cytotoxic activities against SF-268, MCF-7, HepG-2, and A549 tumor cell lines.

RESUMO

A new prenylated flavonostilbene, namely, alopecurone P together with three known compounds sophoraflavanone G, 2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2,3-dihydrobenzo[b]furan-3,4,6-triol and alopecurone J were characterized from the roots of Sophora pachycarpa. The absolute configuration of alopecurones J and P were characterized by comparison of experimental electronic circular dichroism (ECD) spectroscopy and simulated data using time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) for possible stereoisomers. The cytotoxic properties of isolated compounds have also been evaluated on two breast cancer cell lines (MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231) and normal cell line (NIH/3T3) using AlamarBlue®, flowcytometry and western blot assays. Alopecurone J and P showed cytotoxic effect on MCF-7 cell line through Wnt signaling pathway. It seems that the presence of lavandulyl substitution in C-8 position of flavanone structure increased the cytotoxic effect.

RESUMO

A new, relatively simple sample processing and detection workflow has been developed for the quantification and confirmation of banned growth-promoting substances in a wide variety of animal-based food products. The method covers all required compounds (belonging to the so-called A1, A3, A4 and B2f groups as termed by the relevant EU legislation) which are currently monitored by the official European community surveillance programs. The sample processing includes a thermal sample denaturation step, intended to prevent undesirable side-reactions during the following enzymatic deconjugation of covalently bound analytes. A pH-adjusted dual liquid/liquid-extraction produces sufficient clean extracts for a wide range of matrices (urine, muscle, liver, serum, full blood). The method has been validated using two hybrid quadrupole high-resolution mass spectrometers (Orbitrap and time-of-flight technology-based instruments). Full-scan data acquisition, interlaced with targeted modes (unit mass isolation of the precursors, followed by collision-induced fragmentation), produces sufficiently sensitive and selective detection of the analytes within all the validated matrices. The proposed method is an alternative to currently used methods that are restricted to a limited set of analytes and matrices.
