Prenylated Dihydrostilbenes from Macaranga rubiginosa
- 92 Downloads
Phytochemical isolation of the methanol extract of Macaranga rubiginosa leaves afforded five prenylated dihydrostilbenes. Two of them were known dihydrostilbenes laevifolins A (1) and B (2), while the other three were new compounds, trivially named macarubiginosins A–C (3–5). The structures of the new compounds were elucidated based on their UV, 1D and 2D NMR, and HR-ESI-MS spectral data. Compounds 1–5 were tested for their cytotoxicity against P-388 cells, showing that compound 1 was the most active with IC50 4.3 μM.
