Summary of "Octahydro-Protoberberine and Protoemetine-Type Alkaloids from the Stems of and Their Cytotoxicity."

Two octahydro-protoberberine alkaloids, alangiifoliumines A () and B (), and two new protoemetine derivatives, alangiifoliumines C () and D (), together with 11 known compounds, have been isolated from the stems of . While the structures of these compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, the absolute configurations of the new alkaloids were determined by conformational analysis and time-dependent density functional theory-electronic circular dichroism spectra calculations on selected stereoisomers. Compounds and represent the first 5,8,8a,9,12,12a,13,13a-octahydro-protoberberine derivatives, in which the aromatic ring D was reduced to cyclohexene. All the compounds isolated were evaluated for their cytotoxic activity against three human cancer cell lines: A-549, HeLa, and SKOV-3. Alkaloids , , and - exhibited inhibitory effects against all three human cancer cell lines, with half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC) values in the range of 3 nM to 9.4 μM.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plant genus of the family MENISPERMACEAE. Members contain eletefine (a stephaoxocane alkaloid) and tropoloisoquinoline and protoberberine ALKALOIDS.

Alkaloids originally isolated from the ergot fungus Claviceps purpurea (Hypocreaceae). They include compounds that are structurally related to ergoline (ERGOLINES) and ergotamine (ERGOTAMINES). Many of the ergot alkaloids act as alpha-adrenergic antagonists.

Tetrahydroisoquinolinol alkaloids in both dextro and levo forms, originally found in SALSOLA plants.

Alkaloids found in OPIUM from PAPAVER that induce analgesic and narcotic effects by action upon OPIOID RECEPTORS.

Organic nitrogenous bases. Many alkaloids of medical importance occur in the animal and vegetable kingdoms, and some have been synthesized. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
