Chlorizidine A

Posted by naturalproductman on February 20, 2013

Chambers Hughes and co-workers at Scripps have reported in Organic Letters on the isolation of chlorizidine A, which had low micromolar LC50 values against some cancer cell lines from NCI. Another interesting point in this paper is the way they assigned the chiral carbon stereocenter as S from an X-ray crystal structure of the molecule, which also incorporated a benzene molecule. They determined the stereocenter using the Flack parameter.

Premnalatifolin A

Posted by naturalproductman on August 26, 2011

Suresh Babu and co-workers at IICT have reported in Tetrahedron Letters on the isolation of a dimeric diterpene dubbed premnalatifolin A from an Indian medicinal plant, Premna latifolia.  This compound had IC50 values of 12.15 and 1.11 μg/mL against HT-29 and MCF-7 cell lines, respectively.
