Disease relevance of Chinova acid

  • Biotransformation of quinovic acid glycosides by microbes: direct conversion of the ursane to the oleanane triterpene skeleton by Nocardia sp. NRRL 5646 [1].
  • Bioassay-directed fractionation of the anti-inflammatory extracts of Uncaria tomentosa, using the carrageenan-induced edema in rat paw, has led to the isolation of a new quinovic acid glycoside 7 as one of the active principles [2].
 

High impact information on Chinova acid

  • Antileishmanial Activity of Quinovic Acid Glycosides and Cadambine Acid Isolated from Nauclea diderrichii [3].
  • Quinovic acid glycosides were shown to inhibit parasite internalisation by interfering with promastigotes while cadambine acid exerted immunomodulatory activity by inducing NO production in human macrophages [3].
  • During the past 20 years, alkaloids, terpenes, quinovic acid glycosides, flavonoids and coumarins have been isolated from Uncaria [4].
  • The crude extract, some fractions and 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl quinovic acid 28-beta-D-glucopyranosyl ester, significantly and dose-dependently, are able to reduce the electrically-induced contractions of isolated guinea-pig ileum [5].
