Suppression of the inflammatory response by triterpenes
isolated from the mushroom Ganoderma lucidum.
urens are composed of chemical components belonging to the secondary metabolite classes, which include the anthraquinones, coumarins, anthracene derivatives, mono-, sesqui-, di- and triterpenes
, steroids and water-soluble tannins.
The flavonoids and triterpenes
positives results agreed with the data found by Guilhon-Simplicio and Pereira (2011), which pointed the presence of flavonoids and terpenes, especially triterpenes
for species of the Byrsonima genre.
This study determined that the hexane extracts presented the best results for acetylcholinesterase activity, which can be attributed to the presence of triterpenes
and/or anthraquinones, but the ethanolic extracts of the leaves of S.
roseus also contains ursolic acid (triterpene
) and this compound is known to possess a wide range of more biological, anticancer , antimicrobial , hypoglycemic , antiprotozoal (against Plasmodium falciparum) , antiplatelet aggregation, anti HIV-ADIS, antimycobacterium tuberculosis, anti-inflammatory , and antioxidant  activities.

Likewise, it has been observed that Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Candida albicans, Aeromonas hydrophila, Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, show sensitivity to prenylated benzophenones and triterpenes
(Mokoka et al.
More interesting, confidence intervals were smaller than for absolute concentrations in triterpenes
expressing a narrower range of values.
Thus, the triterpene
Lupeol can be characterized as a biomarker for the antileishmanial activity of P.
