Mixed lignan-neolignans from Tarenna attenuata.


PMID 17343407

Abstract

Six new mixed lignan-neolignans and 20 known compounds were isolated from the whole plant of Tarenna attenuata. By analysis of physical and spectroscopic data, the structures of the new compounds were elucidated as (1R,5R,6R)-6-{4-O-[2-(1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl))glycerol]-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl}-3,7-dioxabicyclo[3.3.0]octan-2-one (1), 5' '-methoxyhedyotisol A (2), 4' '-O-(8-guaiacylglycerol)buddlenol A (3), 5' '-methoxy-4' '-O-(8-guaiacylglycerol)buddlenol A (4), 4,6-dimethoxy-5-hydroxy-3-hydroxymethyl-2-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)-2,3-dihydrobenzofuran (5), and 7-O-ethylguaiacylglycerol (6). Compounds 1, 5, 6, and 8 showed potent antioxidant activities against H2O2-induced impairment in PC12 cells, and compounds 1, 2, 5, and 7 scavenged DPPH radical strongly with IC50 values of 72, 87, 45, and 55 microM, respectively.
