Disease relevance of Menispermaceae

 

High impact information on Menispermaceae

  • Chemical investigation of ethyl acetate extract of the fruits of Diploclisia glaucescens of the family Menispermaceae furnished a new ecdysteroid 2-deoxy-5beta,20-dihydroxyecdysone, together with 20-hydroxyecdysone, 3-deoxy-1beta,20-dihydroxyecdysone, 2-deoxy-20-hydroxyecdysone, 24-ethyl-20-hydroxyecdysone (makisterone C) [2].
  • Chemical investigation of methanol extract of the leaves of Diploclisia glaucescens of the family Menispermaceae furnished a new ecdysteroid, 3-deoxy-1beta,20-dihydroxyecdysone [3].
  • From an ethanol extract of the stems of Burasaïa madagascarensis Thouars (Menispermaceae) were isolated N-acetylnornuciferine and two clerodane-type diterpenes, one of them, epicordatine, being new [4].
  • Plant families whose AM morphological status was previously unknown were clarified as follows: Polygonaceae and Commelinaceae showed Arum-type morphology; Celastraceae, Menispermaceae and Elaeagnaceae had typical Paris-type morphology [5].
  • Tetrandrine and isotetrandrine, two bisbenzyltetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloids from Menispermaceae, with rat uterine smooth muscle relaxant activity [6].
 

Gene context of Menispermaceae

  • Dinklacorine was first isolated in 1974 from extracts of the roots of Tiliacora dinklagei Engl. (Menispermaceae) and designated TD-2 [7].
