Bioactive glycosides from Chinese medicinesZhouJun Chinese Academe of Sciences, Kunming Institute of Botany, Laboratory of Phytochemistry Yunnan China 001991862231234Glycosides are the bioactive components of many famous Chinese medicines. Here reported are some bioactive glycosides we discovered from Chinese medicines in recent years. (1) Pheolic glycosides from Chinese medicines: Gastrodia elata, acontium austroynanense and Helicia erratica, three bioactive phenolic glycosides were discovered and two of them have been developed into new drugs. (2) Terpenoidal glycosides: a) Monoterpenoid: the sweroside from Swertia mollensis has been developed intro an anti-hepatitis drug; b) Diterpenoid: Phlomis betonicoides contains sweet glycoides; c) Triterpenoid: many biologically active triterpenoid glycosides were isolated from Panax plants and Siraitia grosvenorii. (3) Steroidal glycosides: a) C21-steroid: Cynanchum otophyllum and C. atratrum contain anti-epilepsy and-tumor glycosides; b) C27-steroid Hemostatic saponins were found in Paris polyphylla.Gastrodia elataAconitum austroyunanenseHelicia erraticeCynanchum otophyllumCynanchum atratumSweroside from Swertia moleensisPhlomis betonicoidesHemostatic saponins from Paris polyphyllaTriterpenoid glycoside from PanaxSiraitia grosvenoriiFull text available only in PDF format.Texto completo disponível apenas em PDF.
