Summary of "Novel Cinnamoylated Flavoalkaloids Identified in Tea with Acetylcholinesterase Inhibition Effect."

3-O-cinnamoylepicatechin (1) was synthesized along with four flavoalkaloids, (-)-6-(5'''S)-N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidinone-3-O-cinnamoylepicatechin (2), (-)-6-(5'''R)-N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidinone--3-O-cinnamoylepicatechin (3), (-)-8-(5'''S)-N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidinone-3-O-cinnamoylepicatechin (4), and (-)-8-(5'''R)-N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidinone-3-O-cinnamoylepicatechin (5) via esterification of epicatechin followed by phenolic Mannich reaction of 1 with theanine in the presence of heat. The new compounds 1-5 were detected in leaves of three tea cultivars, Fuding-Dabai, Huangjingui, and Zimudan with the help of ultra performance liquid chromatography hyphenated with photodiode array detector and electrospray ionization high resolution mass spectrometry (UPLC-PDA-ESI-HRMS), suggesting that they are naturally occurring in tea leaves. The structures of the novel natural products were characterized by one and two dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance (1D and 2D NMR) and mass spectroscopy. Compounds 1-5 were then evaluated for their acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitory effect (IC50 = 0.12 - 1.02 μM). The availability of the synthesized epicatechin derivatives 1-5 via synthetic route enabled the first unequivocal identification of these derivatives as tea secondary metabolites and made it possible to determine their content in the tea material as well as the diverse bioactivities.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A competitive histamine H2-receptor antagonist. Its main pharmacodynamic effect is the inhibition of gastric secretion.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

Tendency toward a lessened strength of response due to practice or activity. It is independent of the effect of reward and is a direct function of time interval since the last response and the number of preceding responses.

One of the CARBONIC ANHYDRASE INHIBITORS that is sometimes effective against absence seizures. It is sometimes useful also as an adjunct in the treatment of tonic-clonic, myoclonic, and atonic seizures, particularly in women whose seizures occur or are exacerbated at specific times in the menstrual cycle. However, its usefulness is transient often because of rapid development of tolerance. Its antiepileptic effect may be due to its inhibitory effect on brain carbonic anhydrase, which leads to an increased transneuronal chloride gradient, increased chloride current, and increased inhibition. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p337)

A synthetic prostaglandin E analog that protects the gastric mucosa, prevents ulceration, and promotes the healing of peptic ulcers. The protective effect is independent of acid inhibition. It is also a potent inhibitor of pancreatic function and growth of experimental tumors.
