Bioactive benzofuran neolignans from Aristolochia fordiana

, : Bioactive benzofuran neolignans from Aristolochia fordiana. Planta Medica 79(18): 1730-1735

Six new benzofuran neolignans (1-6) were isolated from the EtOAc-soluble fraction of the aerial part of Aristolochia fordiana, together with twelve known analogues (7-18). The structures of the isolated compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. All isolates were evaluated for their inhibitory effects on nitric oxide production in lipopolysaccaride-activated RAW264.7 macrophages and for their cytotoxic activities on three human cancer cell lines. Compound 2 showed significant nitric oxide production inhibitory activity with an IC50 value of 10.00 µM, while compound 16 exhibited cytotoxic activity with an IC50 value of 11.9 µM against MG-63 and compound 18 of 9.15 µM against HepG2 cell lines, respectively.
