Yi-Qiang Cheng and co-workers from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee have reported in the Journal of Natural Products on some disulfide compounds that have HDAC inhibitory activity – the compounds with the reduced disulfide bond was shown to be more active than the oxidized dithiol form.

Grassypeptolides

Posted by naturalproductman on November 5, 2010

Hendrik Luesch and co-workers from the University of Florida have published in JOC on the isolation and biological activities of grassypeptolides.  Grassypeptolide C had 44.6 nM IC50 against HeLa cells.

Hoiamides

Posted by naturalproductman on August 6, 2010

William Gerwick and co-workers have published on their studies of hoiamides, which may be a target for voltage gate sodium channels (VGSC).  This channel is a target for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders – there are neurotoxin sites (at least seven) on VGSCs that are targeted by drugs.

Onionin A

Posted by naturalproductman on July 5, 2010

Toshihiro Nohara and co-workers at Sojo University in Japan have published in the Journal of Natural Products on the isolation of onionin A and yes, it’s from a simple onion.  I have heard before that onions are good for you and this compound that is found in onions could be one of the reasons why they are good for our bodies.  The Nohara group in Japan isolated a tetrahydrothiophene oxide compound and found that it had suppressed the expression of CD163 at 10 and 30 micromolar concentrations.  This inhibition suggests that onionin A inhibits the polarization of M2 alternatively activated macrophages, which in turn inhibits tumor cell proliferation.
