The occurance of epitarexerol and other triterpenoids
Antidiabetic potential of triterpenoid
saponin isolated from Primula denticulate.
quercifolius aqueous extracts revealed the presence of phenols, flavones, flavonols, xanthones, catechins, triterpenoids
, and tannins.
19) Mushrooms grown on natural substrates contain precursors that yield secondary metabolites such as triterpenoids
whereas mycelium produced on cereal grains lack such precursors.
All ethanol extracts showed the different intensity of brown colour ranging from deep brown to light brown indicating the presence of mono-terpenes and sesquiterpenes (essential oils), di-and triterpenoids
(gums and resins), Tetraterpenoids (carotenoids, xanthophylls and carotenoic acids) and polyterpenoid is the rubber (Sameeno, 2007; and Raaman, 2006).
Ursolic acid (3beta-hydroxy-urs-12-en-28-oic acid) is a pentacyclic triterpenoid
found naturally in apples, waxy berries, rosemary, oregano, and several other plants and herbs used in medicine and the diet.
Also known as gotu kola, Centella asiatica contains triterpenoid
compounds that help stabilize soft plaque by improving the synthesis of collagen, (10-13) a component of the thick caps that hold soft plaque in place.
The group of other triterpenoids
carrying carboxylic acid function on carbon 24 of the non-sugar part of molecules and more particularly glucosyl derivative of bartogenic acid (GluBA) attracted our attention.
asiatica, there is a need to identify high yielding accessions which will give optimal triterpenoids
which are used as biomarkers.
Previous studies carried out on certain species of these genera afforded variousphytochemicals (quassinoids, furoquinoleine, acridones, cathinone alcaloids, triterpenoids
and steroids) and revealedinteresting pharmacological properties (cytotoxicity, antiplasmadial activities).
Furthermore, analysis of the LC-MS data suggests that flavonoids and triterpenoids
may be responsible for the potential biological effects of EAPL.
Watermelon is rich in phenolic compounds like flavonoids, carotenoids, and triterpenoids
