2) A Comprehensive Review on Traditional Uses, Chemical Constituents, and Diverse Pharmacological Importance of the Genus Breynia
The genus Breynia (family Phyllanthaceae) is widely distributed in Australia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and some regions of India. Traditionally, species of this genus were used to treat various disorders, like skin diseases, pain, cough, tonsillitis, dysentery, and headache. Various studies about this genus are available, but reviews highlighting its pharmacology and phytochemistry are inadequate. This review highlights the pharmacology, phytochemistry, and chemotaxonomic classification of the phytochemicals of ten species of the genus Breynia. About 90 compounds have been isolated from Breynia species, including glycosides, flavonoids, terpenoids, steroids, alkaloids, lignans, phenolic compounds, and catechins. Their structure and presence in each species are presented in tabular form. In pharmacological medicines, the crude extracts and metabolites of the genus Breynia have been found to exhibit diverse biological activity, including, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antiviral, and activity against various blood disorders. Few isolated compounds show enzyme inhibitory activity (tyrosinase, xanthine oxidase, and elastase inhibition).

4) Antitumor Activity of Ethyl Acetate Extraction of Wikstroemia chamaedaphne: Cell Cycle Arrest and Apoptosis-Inducing Activity in Melanoma Cells
The ethyl acetate extraction (WCE) of Wikstroemia chamaedaphne Meisn on the viability of melanoma cell lines B16 and A375 were evaluated. The WCE exhibited a potent cytotoxic against B16 and A375 with IC50 values of 156.2 and 192.8 µg/mL, respectively. Cell migration was assessed using a wound healing assay. The WCE caused cell cycle arrest in the G0/G1 phase in B16 cells and the S phase in A375 cells, according to cell cycle analysis. Flow cytometric analysis revealed that WCE promoted apoptosis in B16 and A375 cells in a dose-dependent manner. Chemical analysis of WCE resulted in the isolation of a new diterpenoid, wikstchalin A (6) with five known flavonoids (1-5) and two known diterpenoids (7 and 8). Spectroscopic analysis revealed their structures, and CD analysis revealed the absolute configurations of 6. The absolute structure of pimelotide A (7) was firstly confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The cytotoxicities of all the compounds (1−8) were evaluated against B16 cell lines. Compound 8 was more active than the positive control, dacarbazine (IC50 300 μM), in terms of cytotoxicity against B16, with an IC50 value of 7.9 μM.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.311.22.02.2343 Keywords Wikstroemia chamaedaphne flavonoid diterpenoid antitumor activity DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2022 ACG Publications.

8) LC-HRMS Based Approach for Identification and Quantification Analysis of Chemical Constituents of Sea Cucumbers from Aegean Sea - Their Cytotoxic and Antiviral Potentials
There are nearly 1200 species of sea cucumber in the world's seas. Among these creatures included in the Holothuroidea class, 37 species show distribution in the Mediterranean and Aegean Sea. The purpose of this study is to determine the chemical content and biological potent of five sea cucumber species, Holothuria tubulosa, Holothuria poli, Holothuria mammata, Holothuria sanctori and Stichopus regalis, which were collected from the Aegean Sea. The detailed flavonoid, phenolic and triterpene contents were determined by LC-HR/MS. Cytotoxic activities against several cancer cell lines, MDA-MB-231, PC-3, A-549, PANC-1, HEPG2 and a healthy cell line CCD-34LU were performed by MTT method. Antiviral activities of the samples were measured as virucidal activity against avian coronavirus by in ovo. According to the results of LC-HRMS analysis, H. sanctori, H. poli and S.regalis had the richest chemical content diversity in terms of examined triterpene compounds. Fumaric acid was detected as the most abundant substance in all sea cucumber species. H. tubulosa had a highly toxic effect on all the tested cells. The best cytotoxic activity on A549 cells was seen in H. mammata, H. sanctori and H. poli. H. sanctori also showed a significant toxic effect against PANC-1, MDA-MB-231, HepG2 and A549 cells, whereas the IC50 value in CCD-34LU cells was above 50 μg/ml for this sample. The n-butanol extracts of sea cucumber species reduced hemagglutination (HA) virus titer between 1-fold to 4-fold in log2-based at all tested concentrations. The best inhibited virus HA titer results were found in H. tubulosa at 5 μg/g. According to these results we have obtained, the extracts of sea cucumbers may be used in many fields such as medicine, food, cosmetics in the future. This study is also very important in terms of being a guide for all studies on the use, processing and production of sea cucumbers and detailed isolation and purification studies on sea cucumber species from Turkey.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.323.2202.2349 Keywords Holothuria Stichopus cytotoxicity antiviral activity LC-HRMS avian coronavirus DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2022 ACG Publications.

11) A Novel Nitrogen-containing Glyceride from Fungal Saprobe Tubeufia rubra Reverses MDR of Tumor Cell Lines to Doxorubicin
AA chemical investigation of secondary metabolites from the saprobic fungus Tubeufia rubra led to isolation of a novel nitrogen-containing glyceride, Rubracin A (1), and a novel eight-membered cyclic ether carboxylate methyl ester, Rubracin H (2). Together with six known compounds (3-8). The chemical structure of these new compounds were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR and HR-ESI-MS techniques. Although, there are no observed cytotoxic effects of compound 1 against MCF-7/Dox, A549/Dox, and K562/Dox cells at oncentrations below 25 μg/mL, usage of compound 1 and doxorubicin revealed the MDR reversal via decreased IC50 values than that of sole doxorubicin application in the cell lines. A preliminary Western Blot assay indicated that the MDR reversal of compound 1 was due to suppression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) expression.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.320.2201.2334 Keywords Rubracin A Tubeufia rubra PF02-2 cytotoxic activity MDR reversal DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2022 ACG Publications.

13) Secondary Metabolites from the Coral-Derived Fungus Aspergillus terreus SCSIO41404 with Pancreatic Lipase Inhibitory Activities
Ten secondary metabolites were isolated from cultures of the marine coral-derived fungus Aspergillus terreus SCSIO41404. The compounds were identified as monacolin K (1), methyl ester of lactone ring-opened monacolin K (2), asperterreusine C (3), 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (4), 4-hydroxy-3-(3-methylbut-2-en-1-yl) benzaldehyde (5), kojic acid (6), p-hydroxyphenylacetic acid methyl ester (7), o-hydroxyphenylacetic acid methyl ester (8), N-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-acetamide (9), and (S)-methyl 2-acetamido-3-phenylpropanoate (10), by comparing the spectroscopic data with the reported literature values. They were evaluated for their cytotoxic, antibacterial, and enzyme (pancreatic lipase and acetylcholinesterase) inhibitory activities. Monacolin K (1) and its derivative (2) were revealed with obvious pancreatic lipase (PL) inhibitory effects. The in silico molecular docking with PL protein was further performed to understand the binding effects, and it is suggested that the ring opening of the monacolin K facilitates for the PL inhibitory activities.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.312.22.01.2314 Keywords Coral-derived fungus Aspergillus terreus secondary metabolites pancreatic lipase molecular docking DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2022 ACG Publications.

14) Degranulation Inhibitors from Petals of Coreopsis grandiflora
The extracts of petals of Coreopsis grandiflora, a member of the Asteraceae family, were found to inhibit degranulation in RBL-2H3 cells, and lanceoletin, leptosidin, okanin, and 4-methoxylanceoletin were isolated as degranulation inhibitors by liquid-liquid separation and column chromatography. The intensities of the antigen-stimulated degranulation inhibitory activities of the four flavonoids were in the order of leptosidin, okanin, lanceoletin and 4-methoxylanceoletin. Leptosidin, which inhibited antigen-stimulated degranulation most greatly, inhibited calcium ionophore-stimulated degranulation with the same intensity as that of lanceoletin and okanin. As a result of investigation of the structure-activity relationships of the four isolated active compounds for antigen-stimulated degranulation inhibitory activities, it was found the inhibitory activity of lanceoletin, a chalcone, was enhanced by forming a C ring and becoming leptosidin, an aurone. In addition, the three chalcones tended to have greater degranulation inhibitory activity as their molecule polarities increased.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/rnp.319.2202.2351 Keywords Degranulation inhibitory activity aurone chalcone Coreopsis grandiflora RBL-2H3 cells DETAILS PDF OF ARTICLE © 2022 ACG Publications.
