Abstract: Two new aryltetralin-type lignans, dolomiaeasin A (1) and dolomiaeasin B (2), were isolated from the roots of Dolomiaea souliei. Their structures were elucidated by means of various spectroscopic analyses. The cytotoxicities of 1 and 2 were tested by the MTT method, and both compounds showed no significant cytotoxic activities against the A549 and A2780 human cancer cell lines. This is the first time that aryltetralin-type lignans were isolated from the genus Dolomiaea.
Keywords: Compositae; Dolomiaea souliei; aryltetralin; cytotoxicity
