Isolation, structure elucidation and cytotoxic evaluation of endiandrin B from the Australian rainforest plant Endiandra anthropophagorum
MetadataShow full item record
Chemical investigations of the DCM extract from the roots of Endiandra anthropophagorum resulted in the isolation of a new cyclobutane lignan endiandrin B (1), together with the known natural products, endiandrin A (2), and (-)-dihydroguaiaretic acid (3). The structure of 1 was determined by extensive spectroscopic analyses, and confirmed by single crystal X-ray crystallography. Methylation of 1 using diazomethane afforded the previously reported natural product, cinbalansan (4). All compounds were evaluated for their cytotoxicity towards human lung carcinoma cells (A549) using high-content screening. (-)-Dihydroguaiaretic acid (3) was found to be the most potent cytotoxin against the A549 lung carcinoma cell line, with an IC50 value of 7.49 卮
