Abstract: The examination of the aerial parts, roots, and seeds of the endemic plant Rindera umbellata is reported in this paper for the first time. Phytochemical investigation of R. umbellata led to the isolation and characterization of ten pyrrolizidine alkaloids and eleven fatty acids in the form of triglycerides. Pyrrolizidine alkaloids 19 were found in the aerial parts, 7 and 8 in the roots, and 610, together with eleven fatty acids, in the seeds of this plant species. The structures of compounds 110 were established based on spectroscopic studies (1H- and 13C-NMR, 2D NMR, IR and CI-MS). After trans-esterification, methyl esters of the fatty acids were analyzed using GC-MS. The effect of lindelofine-N-oxide (7) on tubulin polymerization was determined.
Keywords: Rindera umbellata; pyrrolizidine alkaloids; fatty acids; tubulin polymerization
