  • A Comparative Study on Hulled Adlay and Unhulled Adlay through Evaluation
           of Their LPS‐Induced Anti‐Inflammatory Effects, and Isolation
           of Pure Compounds
    • Abstract: Coicis semen (=the hulled seed of Coix lacryma‐jobi L. var. ma‐yuen (Rom.Caill.) Stapf; Gramineae), commonly known as adlay and Job's tears, is widely used in traditional medicine and as a nutritious food. Bioassay‐guided fractionation of the AcOEt fraction of unhulled adlays, using measurement of nitric oxide (NO) production on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)‐stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophage cells, led to the isolation and identification of two new stereoisomers, (+)‐(7′S,8′R,7″S,8″R)‐guaiacylglycerol β‐O‐4′‐dihydrodisinapyl ether (1) and (+)‐(7′S,8′R,7″R,8″R)‐guaiacylglycerol β‐O‐4′‐dihydrodisinapyl ether (2), together with six known compounds, 3–8. Compounds 3 and 4 exhibited inhibitory activities on LPS‐induced NO production with IC50 values of 1.4 and 3.7 μM, respectively, and suppressed inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase‐2 (COX‐2) protein expressions in RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Simple high‐performance liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection (HPLC/UV) was used to compare the AcOEt fraction of unhulled adlays responsible for the anti‐inflammatory activity in RAW 264.7 cells and the inactive AcOEt fraction of hulled adlays.
  • Terpenoids from Rhizomes of Alpinia japonica Inhibiting Nitric Oxide
    • Abstract: A new sesquiterpenoid, 1, and three new diterpenoids, 3–5, along with five known compounds, 2 and 6–9, were isolated from rhizomes of Alpinia japonica. The structures of the new compounds were determined as (1R,4R,6S,7S,9S)‐4α‐hydroxy‐1,9‐peroxybisabola‐2,10‐diene (1), methyl (12E)‐16‐oxolabda‐8(17),12‐dien‐15‐oate (3), (12R)‐15‐ethoxy‐12‐hydroxylabda‐8(17),13(14)‐dien‐16,15‐olide (4), and methyl (11E)‐14,15,16‐trinorlabda‐8(17),11‐dien‐13‐oate (5) by means of spectroscopic data. The absolute configurations at C(4) in 1 and C(12) in 4 were deduced from the circular dichroism (CD) data of the in situ‐formed [Rh2(CF3COO)4] complexes. Inhibitory effects of the isolates on NO production in lipopolysaccharide‐induced RAW264.7 macrophages were evaluated, and 2–4, 6, and 7 were found to exhibit inhibitory activities with IC50 values between 14.6 and 34.3 μM.
  • Content of Fatty Acids and Phenolics in Coratina Olive Oil from Tunisia:
           Influence of Irrigation and Ripening
    • Abstract: The quality indices and chemical composition of Coratina olive oil produced in the northern region of Tunisia were evaluated, to determine the effect of three different irrigation regimes of the trees on the olive oils. The olives were sampled at two different stages of maturity, the oils were extracted, and standard methods were used to analyze the composition and quality of the oils. The fatty‐acid contents and quality parameters were only slightly affected by the irrigation regime. The contents of palmitic, oleic, and linoleic acids were above 12, 72, and 8%, respectively, for the second harvest, regardless of the irrigation level of the olive trees. Parameters such as the α‐tocopherol content and the phenolic profile were found to be significantly affected by the harvesting time; however, inconsistent changes were observed for the irrigation regimes, especially for the oil of the second harvest. It was shown that the irrigation conditions of the olive trees as well as the harvesting time of the fruits gave rise to a diverse range of olive oils in Tunisia.
  • Bioactive Diphenyl Ether Derivatives from a Gorgonian‐Derived Fungus
           Talaromyces sp.
    • Abstract: Three new diphenyl ether derivatives, talaromycins A–C (1–3, resp.), together with six known analogs, 4–9, were isolated from a gorgonian‐derived fungus, Talaromyces sp. The structures of the new compounds were determined by analysis of extensive NMR spectroscopic data. All of the isolated metabolites, 1–9, were evaluated for their cytotoxic and antifouling activities. Compound 4 exhibited pronounced cytotoxicity against the tested human cell lines with the IC50 values ranging from 4.3 to 9.8 μM. Compounds 3, 5, 8, and 9 showed potent antifouling activities against the larval settlement of the barnacle Balanus amphitrite with the EC50 values ranging from 2.2 to 4.8 μg/ml.
  • Bioprospection of Cytotoxic Compounds in Fungal Strains Recovered from
           Sediments of the Brazilian Coast
    • Abstract: The cytotoxic activities of extracts (50 μg/ml) from 48 fungal strains, recovered from sediments of Pecém's offshore port terminal (Northeast coast of Brazil), against HCT‐116 colon cancer cell lines were investigated. The most promising extract was obtained from strain BRF082, identified as Dichotomomyces cejpii by phylogenetic analyses of partial RPB2 gene sequence. Thus, it was selected for bioassay‐guided isolation of the cytotoxic compounds. Large‐scale fermentation of BRF082 in potato dextrose broth, followed by chromatographic purification of the bioactive fractions from the liquid medium, yielded gliotoxin (4) and its derivatives acetylgliotoxin G (3), bis(dethio)bis(methylsulfanyl)gliotoxin (1), acetylgliotoxin (5), 6‐acetylbis(dethio)bis(methylsulfanyl)gliotoxin (2), besides the quinazolinone alkaloid fiscalin B. All isolated compounds were tested for their cytotoxicities against the tumor cell lines HCT‐116, revealing 4 and 3 as the most cytotoxic ones (IC50 0.41 and 1.06 μg/ml, resp.).
  • A New DNA‐Intercalative Cytotoxic Allylic Xanthone from Swertia
    • Abstract: Phytochemical investigation of the CHCl3 fraction of Swertia corymbosa resulted in the isolation of a new 3‐allyl‐2,8‐dihydroxy‐1,6‐dimethoxy‐9H‐xanthen‐9‐one (1), along with four known xanthones, gentiacaulein (3), norswertianin (4), 1,3,6,8‐tetrahydroxyxanthone (5), and 1,3‐dihydroxyxanthone (6). Structure of compound 1 was elucidated with the aid of IR, UV, NMR, and MS data, and chemical transformation via new allyloxy xanthone derivative (2). Compounds 1–6 exhibited various levels of antioxidant and anti‐α‐glucosidase activities. Absorption and fluorescence spectroscopic studies on 1–6 indicated that these compounds could interact with calf thymus DNA (CT‐DNA) through intercalation and with bovine serum albumin (BSA) in a static quenching process. Compound 1 was found to be significantly cytotoxic against human cancer cell lines HeLa, HCT116, and AGS, and weakly active against normal NIH 3T3 cell line.
  • Drimane Sesquiterpenoids from the Aspergillus oryzae QXPC‐4
    • Abstract: Three new drimane sesquiterpenoids, astellolides C–E (1–3, resp.), four new drimane sesquiterpenoid p‐hydroxybenzoates, astellolides F–I (4–7, resp.), together with two known compounds astellolides A and B (8 and 9, resp.), have been isolated from the liquid culture of Aspergillus oryzae (strain No. QXPC‐4). Their structures were established by comprehensive analysis of spectroscopic data. The relative and absolute configurations were determined on the basis of NOESY and CD data, together with single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction analyses of compounds 1–3. The metabolites were evaluated for their cytotoxic activities, however, no compounds showed a significant cytotoxicity against the tested cell lines at a concentration of 20 μM.
  • Chemical Composition and Biological Activity of Abies alba and A. koreana
           Seed and Cone Essential Oils and Characterization of Their Seed Hydrolates
    • Abstract: The chemical composition, including the enantiomeric excess of the main terpenes, the antimicrobial and antiradical activities, as well as the cytotoxicity of Abies alba and A. koreana seed and cone essential oils were investigated. Additionally, their seed hydrolates were characterized. In the examined oils and hydrolates, a total of 174 compounds were identified, which comprised 95.6–99.9% of the volatiles. The essential oils were mainly composed of monoterpene hydrocarbons, whereas the composition of the hydrolates, differing from the seed oils of the corresponding fir species, consisted mainly of oxygenated derivatives of sesquiterpenes. The seed and cone essential oils of both firs exhibited DPPH‐radical‐scavenging properties and low antibacterial activity against the bacterial strains tested. Moreover, they evoked only low cytotoxicity towards normal fibroblasts and the two cancer cell lines MCF‐7 and MDA‐MBA‐231. At concentrations up to 50 μg/ml, all essential oils were safe in relation to normal fibroblasts. Although they induced cytotoxicity towards the cancer cells at concentrations slightly lower than those required for the inhibition of fibroblast proliferation, their influence on cancer cells was weak, with IC50 values similar to those observed towards normal fibroblasts.
  • Biochemical Characterization of Helichrysum italicum (Roth) G.Don subsp.
           italicum (Asteraceae) from Montenegro: Phytochemical Screening,
           Chemotaxonomy, and Antioxidant Properties
    • Abstract: The chemical composition and antioxidant properties of the essential oil and EtOH extract of immortelle (Helichrysum italicum (Roth) G.Don subsp. italicum, Asteraceae) collected in Montenegro were evaluated. The essential oil was characterized by GC/MS analysis, and the content of total phenolics and flavonoids in the EtOH extract was determined using the FolinCiocalteu reagent. The free‐radical‐scavenging capacity (RSC) of both the essential oil and the EtOH extract was assessed with the 2,2‐diphenyl‐1‐pycrylhydrazyl (DPPH) method. Moreover, the inhibition of hydroxyl radical (.OH) generation by the EtOH extract of immortelle was evaluated for the first time here. Neryl acetate (28.2%) and γ‐curcumene (18.8%) were the main compounds in the essential oil, followed by neryl propionate (9.1%) and ar‐curcumene (8.3%). The chemical composition of the oils of the examined and additional 16 selected Helichrysum italicum taxa described in literature were compared using principal component (PCA) and cluster (CA) analyses. The results of the statistical analyses implied the occurrence of at least four different main and three subchemotypes of essential oils. Considering the antioxidant properties, the EtOH extract of immortelle exhibited similar potential as propyl gallate and quercetin, while the essential oil exhibited relatively weak DPPH.‐scavenging capacity.

  • From the Sequence to the Conformation of the Unabridged Transmembrane
           Domains TM1 and TM2 of the cASIC1a Ion Channel – A Parallel
           Tempering Approach
    • Abstract: This work was devised to unravel, along replica‐exchange molecular‐dynamics (REMD) simulations, the conformation in solution of the TM1 and TM2 transmembrane domains of the homotrimeric cASIC1a ion channel. This includes the head of TM1 and tail of TM2 that had previously defied X‐ray diffraction analysis in the crystal. The structure of the open‐channel complex of cASIC1a with psalmotoxin 1 (PcTx1) was chosen here as a basis, although, to make the simulations affordable, the procedure was limited to the missing portions, including a few adjacent α‐helical turns. The latter were held fixed during the simulations. Reassembling the whole subunit, by superimposition of the fixed portions, resulted in diving of both TM1 and TM2 as continuous α‐helices into the cytoplasm. At completion of this work, it appeared, from similar X‐ray diffraction studies, that TM2 for both the complex of cASIC1a with the coral snake MitTx toxin, and the isolated desensitized ion channel, is discontinuous, with the triad G443‐A444‐S445 taking an extended, belt‐like conformation. In this way, a filter ring against hydrated ions is formed by G443 in the trimer. Our REMD examination of this complex revealed a strong resistance by G443, and only that residue, to take dihedral‐angle values compatible with an α‐helical conformation. This suggests that the flexibility of glycine alone does not explain formation of the extended, belt‐like conformation of the triad G443‐A444‐S445. This also requires cooperation in the trimer.
