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).
Two oleanane-type triterpenoids substituted with galloyl and glucosyl moieties were identified for the first time, one of which exhibits sweet properties.
The highest content of the triterpenoids except madecassic acid was in the CA-9 while madecassic acid was highest in the CA-11 (Singh et al.
Furthermore, analysis of the LC-MS data suggests that flavonoids and triterpenoids may be responsible for the potential biological effects of EAPL.
Moreover, the triterpenoid saponin (21-O-angeloyltheasapogenol E3; ATS-E3) isolated from Camellia sinensis plant seeds inhibited phagocytic uptake, ROS generation, and NO production by suppression of protein kinase B (PKB), also known as AKT; I kappa B kinase (IKK); and factor nuclear kappa B (NF-[kappa]B)-dependent inflammatory pathways in macrophage culture [78].
These triterpenoids are widely distributed in plant kingdom [40-43], but up to now they have not been reported in the genus Chaptalia.
The chemical shift and splitting pattern of this signal was characteristic for 3A3/4friedelanol type triterpenoid skeleton.
The main other treatment component which is likely to be effective against Ebola (especially when used in combination with Se) (Hou, 1997) is glycyrrhizin, a triterpenoid from licorice with liver protective and antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antidiabetic effects (Pu et al, 2013).
