"Flavaglines and triterpenoids from the leaves of Aglaia forbesii"
Phytochemistry (2008), 69(1), 206-11
"Three structurally complex flavaglines of the cyclopenta[bc]benzopyran type, named desacetylpyramidaglains A, C, D (1-3), and the triterpene 23, 24, 25-trihydroxycycloartan-3-one (4) were isolated from the leaves of Aglaia forbesii together with the two rare pregnane steroids 2beta,3beta-dihydroxy-5alpha-pregn-17(Z)-en-16-one and 2beta,3beta-dihydroxy-5alpha-pregn-17(E)-en-16-one, as well as the bisamide pyramidatine, the sesquiterpene spathulenol, and the widespread triterpenoids lupeol, lupenone, and a mixture of beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol. Their structures were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. Compounds 3, 4, 5, and 6 were tested for antituberculosis and antiviral activity."
