Camptothecin (CPT), a modified monoterpene indole alkaloid, was isolated for the first time from Camptotheca
acuminate (Sirikantaramas et al.
An endophytic fungus from Camptotheca
acuminata that produces camptothecin and analogues.
Trifolin is found in many plants, such as Diospyros blancoi (Candolle, 1844), Camptotheca
acuminata (Perdue, 1966), Euphorbia condylocarpa (Roshchin, 1977), and Consolida oliveriana (Arboretum, 1967).

The chemical created so much excitement that the government turned over federal land in Chico to cultivate Camptotheca
acuminata, the Chinese shrub from which camptothecin was derived.
