2) A New Labdane Diterpene from the Aerial Parts of Chloranthus serratus
A new labdane diterpene (1) and five known compounds (2-6) were isolated from the aerial parts of Chloranthus serratus. The gross structure of compound 1 was resolved by NMR and HRESIMS data. The absolute configuration of 1 was determined by comparing CD spectrum and specific rotations with those of the co-isolated known analogue 2. The known compounds were identified to be agathic acid (2), altechromone (3), chlorajapolide F (4), shizukanolide (5), and chloranthalactone E (6) by comparing the NMR data with those in the literature. ll compounds were evaluated for their inhibitions against NO production in LPS-activated RAW 264.7 macrophages, compounds 2 and 6 showed moderate inhibitions with IC50 values of 45.2 ± 1.2 and 35.3 ± 0.9 mM.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.175.20.02.1559 (DOI number will be activated after the manuscript has been available in an issue.)

3) Structure, Absolute Configuration and Biological Evaluation of a New Labdane Diterpenoid from Jatropha podagrica
Jatrodagricaine A (1), a new labdane-type diterpenoid, together with three known derivatives (2−4) were isolated from the leaves of Jatropha podagrica. Their structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic methods. The absolute configuration of 1 was established by its biosynthetic pathway and comparison to known compound. All compounds were investigated for their anti-inflammatory and thioredoxin reductase (TrxR) inhibitory activities. Compound 1 showed potential inhibition in terms of nitric oxide (NO) production in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced RAW264.7 macrophages with IC50 value of 40.6 ± 2.2 μM.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.172.1912.1495 (DOI number will be activated after the manuscript has been available in an issue.)

4) New Spectinabilin and Hexadienamide Derivatives from Streptomyces sp. S012
A new spectinabilin derivative (1) and hexadienamide (3), together with (-)-spectinabilin (2) and sarmentosamide (4), were isolated from Streptomyces sp. S012. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis, including 1H, 13C NMR, 1H-1H COSY, HSQC, HMBC, NOESY and HRESIMS. Their antibacterial activity was also evaluated in this study.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.220.127.116.110 (DOI number will be activated after the manuscript has been available in an issue.)

5) Antimicrobial, Larvicidal Activities and Composition of the Leaf Essential Oil of Magnolia coco (Lour.) DC
The chemical constituents, antimicrobial and larvicidal activities of essential oils obtained by hydrodistillation of the leaves of Magnolia coco (Lour.) DC. are being reported. The essential oils were analyzed using Gas Chromatography-Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID) and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) while the larvicidal activity was evaluated by the protocol of the World Health Organization (WHO). The microbroth dilution assay was used for the study of antimicrobial activity. The major compounds in the oil were sabinene (35.4%) and β-pinene (16.3%). The oil exhibited 100% mortality towards Aedes albopictus at 24 h and concentrate of 50 mg/mL while maximum mortality was shown against Ae. aegypti and Culex quinquefasciatus at concentration of 100 mg/mL. The median lethal concentrations, LC50, values of 11.01, 46.46 and 87.61 mg/mL were obtained against Ae. albopictus, Ae. aegypti and Cx. quinquefasciatus respectively at 24 h. However, the LC50 values at 48 h period were 10.40, 41.98 and 53.86 mg/mL respectively. In addition, the oil exhibited antimicrobial activity against Enterococcus faecalis ATCC 299212, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923, Bacillus cereus ATCC 14579 and Candida albicans ATCC 10231 with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) values of 128.0, 256.0, 128.0 and 64.0 µg/mL respectively, while the IC50 values were 64.33, 128.4, 65.33 and 32.33 µg/mL respectively. These reports, the first of its kind, indicate the potentials of M. coco leaf oil as a source of antimicrobial and larvicidal agents.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.174.20.02.1541 (DOI number will be activated after the manuscript has been available in an issue.)

6) Essential Oil Composition of Tilia platyphyllos Scop. Collected from Different Regions of Kosovo
The aim of this study was to assess variation of the chemical composition of essential oils obtained from inflorescences and leaves of Tilia platyphyllos Scop. collected from five different localities in Kosovo. GC-MS/GC-FID analysis revealed the presence of 96 compounds in essential oils obtained from inflorescences of large-leaved lime with the most prominent classes including hydrocarbons, with the respective concentrations in flowers and leaves of 41.7% - 46.2% and 27.5% - 36.8%, respectively, oxygenated sesquiterpenes (12.2%-23.0% and 21.3% -31.2%, in flowers and leaves, respectively) and fatty acids and their derivatives (8.0% - 19.6% and 18.1% – 23.1% in flowers and leaves, respectively) whereas monoterpenes were present in smaller amount. Experimental data showed that large-leaved lime is reach in different groups of volatile compounds, and this species could be further recommended for food and medicinal application.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.18.104.22.1680 (DOI number will be activated after the manuscript has been available in an issue.)

7) Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) Peel Extract: Potential Cytotoxic Agent Against Different Cancer Cell Lines
The aim of the present study was to investigate effects of pomegranate peel (PP) extract on different human cancer cell lines. MTT was performed to estimate cytotoxic effects of PP extract against HTB140, HTB177, MCF7, HCT116 human cancer cell lines and MRC-5 normal fibroblasts. Clonogenic assay was used to reveal cell survival after the treatment with PP extract. Cell cycle analysis was done using flow cytometry. Wound healing assay was applied to estimate inhibitory effects of PP extract on migration of cancer cells. The results showed that PP extract expressed selective cytotoxicity for cancer cells compared to normal cell line. Analyzed cancer cell lines displayed individual variations in sensitivity to PP extract reflected through changes in clonogenic survival, cell cycle distribution and migration, which may be due to the specific nature of each tested cell line. In conclusion, PP extract exhibits good inhibitory effects on tested cancer cell lines.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.22.214.171.1247 (DOI number will be activated after the manuscript has been available in an issue.)
