Isolation of two phenylethanoid glycosides from Eremophila gilesii
MetadataShow full item record
The leaves of Eremophila gilesii have been used traditionally to treat colds, headaches, sores, and chest pains. Our previous screening of Australian native plants showed that the methanol extract of the aerial parts of E. gilesii demonstrated notable inhibition of ADP-induced human platelet aggregation and serotonin release. Subsequent fractionation on the methanol extract led to the isolation of two phenylethanoid glycosides, verbascoside (1) and poliumoside (2). This is the first study reporting the presence of phenylethanoid glycosides in E. gilesii.
