FONSECA, Ana Paula Nascentes de Deus et al. Phytochemical study of the decoct from the leaves of Maytenus Truncata Reissek and the evaluation of the antinociceptive, antiedematogenic and antiulcerogenic activities of the decoct extracts. Quím. Nova [online]. 2007, vol.30, n.4, pp. 842-847. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422007000400016.
The present paper describes the phytochemical investigation and biological activities of the chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol extracts of leaf decocts of M. truncata Reiss (Celastraceae). Our studies afforded two flavonoid glycosides, quercetin-3-O-rhamnopyranosyl-O-glucopyranosyl- O-rhamnopyranosyl-O-galactopyranoside (1) and kampferol-3-O-rhamnopyranosyl-O-glucopyranosyl- O-rhamnopyranosyl-O-galactopyranoside (2) from the methanolic extract and dulcitol (3) from the ethyl acetate extract. Ethyl acetate and methanol extracts exhibited considerable antiulcerogenic and analgesic activities. The results of the phytochemical studies suggest that the healing activity of methanol extracts can be related to the presence of glycosyl flavonoids.
