Seven New Monoterpenoid Indole Alkaloids from Gelsemium elegans.
Summary of "Seven New Monoterpenoid Indole Alkaloids from Gelsemium elegans."
Seven new indole alkaloids were isolated from the roots of Gelsemium elegans Benth. and their structures were determined by spectroscopic analysis and chemical transformation from known alkaloids. Kounaminal (1) is a new koumine-type alkaloid that contains an unusual aminal moiety. Humantenoxenine (2) and 15-hydroxyhumantenoxenine (3) are humantenine-type alkaloids that contain a novel β-amino-α,β-unsaturated ketone residue. The other four novel alkaloids are two gelsedilam-related and two gelsenicine-related alkaloids.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Benzo-indoles similar to CARBOLINES which are pyrido-indoles. In plants, carbazoles are derived from indole and form some of the INDOLE ALKALOIDS.
Group of alkaloids containing a benzylpyrrole group (derived from TRYPTOPHAN)
A group of indole-indoline dimers which are ALKALOIDS obtained from the VINCA genus of plants. They inhibit polymerization of TUBULIN into MICROTUBULES thus blocking spindle formation and arresting cells in METAPHASE. They are some of the most useful ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS.
A plant genus of the family POLYGALACEAE that contains securiosides and indole alkaloids.
A plant genus of the family RUBIACEAE. Members contain psychotridine and brachycerine (indole alkaloids).
Covering: 2010-2011. Previous review: Nat. Prod. Rep. 2010, 27, 1630-1680This review covers the literature on simple indole alkaloids and those with a non-rearranged monoterpenoid unit from the beginn...
Two new monoterpenoid indole alkaloid derivatives, turpiniside ( 1) and 11-methoxyjavaniside ( 2), along with the known alkaloids, vincosamide ( 3), (3 R)-pumiloside ( 4), and paratunamide C ( 5), wer...
Facile chemoenzymatic syntheses of cytotoxic monoterpenoid indole alkaloids with novel skeletons and multiple chiral centers are described. Synthesis of these alkaloids was achieved by a simple one-st...
Alkaloids in Gelsemium elegans possess a variety of therapeutic properties, including tumor suppression, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. In China, G. elegans has been used for centuries to tr...
Currently, all monoterpenoid indole alkaloids (MIAs) have been derived from strictosidine, which originates from the condensation of tryptophan with secologanin in a 1:1 ratio. However, our phytochemi...
