BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF TRITERPENES ISOLATED FROM THE MEDICINAL MUSHROOM GANODERMA LUCIDUM

AbstractMethanol extract of Ganoderma lucidum subjected to fractionation on silica gel medium pressure column afforded over 40 fractions. Further fractionation was carried out using Centrifugal Partition Chromatography (FCPC Rousselet Robatel, France), in the hexane-EtOAc-MeOH-Water systems adjusted for the polarity of each fraction. Some isolates were further purified by preparative HPLC. Methyl ... READ MORE

Fractionation of Cocoa Procyanidins by Degree of Polymerization

Proanthocyanidins (procyanidins) derived from natural products such as cocoa, cranberries, peanuts and many other dietary products, have become a popular field of research in neutraceuticals. Procyanidins are composed of varying degrees of polymerization of primarily catechin and epicatechin, and occur naturally in the hundreds.Although there has been increasing interest in the compounds which hav...
