Bioactive cembrane diterpenoids of Anisomeles indica.


PMID 18547115

Abstract

Five new cembrane-type diterpenoids with a trans-fused alpha-methylene-gamma-lactone (1-5), a new flavonoid glucoside (6), and 17 known compounds were isolated from a methanol extract of Anisomeles indica. The structures of 1-6 were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis, and the absolute configuration of compound 1 was determined using the modified Mosher's method. Compound 8 (4,5-epoxovatodiolide) exhibited cytotoxicity against a small panel of human cancer cell lines. Additionally, compounds 4 and 7 (ovatodiolide) exhibited selective antiplatelet aggregation activities toward collagen, while compounds 4, 5, and 8 showed inhibitory effects on antiplatelet aggregation induced by thrombin.
