High impact information on Burseraceae

  • Protium kleinii (Burseraceae), a native Brazilian medicinal plant is claimed to be useful to treat some inflammatory states [1].
  • Four cytotoxic lignans were isolated from the stem bark of Bursera permollis (Burseraceae), namely, deoxypodophyllotoxin (1), beta-peltatin methyl ether (2), picro-beta-peltatin methyl ether (3), and dehydro-beta-peltatin methyl ether (4) [2].
  • Canarium manii (Burseraceae) was chemically investigated and the presence of the biflavonoid agathisflavone is reported for the first time from this plant [3].
  • Cytotoxic agents from Bursera morelensis (Burseraceae): deoxypodophyllotoxin and a new lignan, 5'-desmethoxydeoxypodophyllotoxin [4].
  • A new antifungal flavanone, muscanone (1), was isolated along with known naringenin (2) from Commiphora wightii (Arn.) Bhandari (Burseraceae) by directing the fractionation of an EtOH extract of the air-dried trunk of C. wightii with microbial sensitivity assay [5].

Associations of Burseraceae with chemical compounds

  • A new 5-methylchromone glycoside, named 7-O-methylaloeresin A (2-acetonyl-8-C-beta-D[2'-O-(E)-4-hydroxycinnamoyl]glucopyranosyl-7- methoxy-5-methylchromone, 1), was isolated from Commiphora socotrana (Burseraceae) [6].

Gene context of Burseraceae

  • As far as the soft resins of the Burseraceae are concerned, it would be appropriate to use the word "elemi". The component resin of the surgical adhesive implicated (Alphacopal) is a Manilla resin, produced by a variety of Agathis dammara (Lamb.) Rich., native to the Philippines [7].
