Abstract: Three new biflavonoids, wikstaiwanones A–C (1–3), along with four known compounds (4–7) were isolated from the stems of Wikstroemia taiwanensis (Thymelaeaceae). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis. Compounds 4 and 5 showed antitubercular activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis with MIC values of 15 μg/mL, respectively.
Tuberculosis (TB), including multidrug resistant tuberculosis and extensively drug resistant tuberculosis, remains an epidemic in many regions of the world, with an estimated 8.8 million new cases and caused 1.1 million deaths globally in 2010 . In Taiwan, it is also one of the most important communicable infectious diseases subject to official notification, with the highest number of confirmed cases and deaths . Searching new sources of antitubercular agents from nature is crucial to curb the rise of drug-resistant strains. Examining an antitubercular activity from crude extracts of several Taiwan endemic plants, we found the methanolic extract of the stems of Wikstroemia taiwanensis showed potent activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv in vitro W. taiwanensis (Thymelaeaceae) is an endemic deciduous shrub growing in the south of Taiwan. Analysis of the chemical constituents and bioactivity of this plant has not been conducted previously. Bioactivity-directed fractionation of the active EtOAc layer of the stems of this species led to the isolation and characterization of three biflavonoids, wikstaiwanones A–C (1–3), along with three known biflavonoids, sikokianins B (4) , C (5) , isochamaejasmin (6) , and, methyl 4-hydroxybenzoate (7)  (Figure 1). This paper reports the structure elucidation of 1–3 and their antitubercular activities.
2. Results and Discussion
The present study focused on the fraction of the W. taiwanensis stem extract that displayed biological activity, which was confined to the EtOAc-soluble fraction. When this fraction was further separated by gel filtration into four parts, only one of them showed activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv. On separating this active part, compounds 1–7 were isolated, characterization of these compounds indicated 1–3 were new compounds.
2.1. Structure Elucidation of the New Isolates
Compound 1 was isolated as an optically active yellowish amorphous powder, [α]D25−77.0 (c 0.03, MeOH). Its molecular formula was established as C30H22O10 by ESI-MS and HR-ESI-MS, with 20 degrees of unsaturation and a dimer composed of a flavone moiety and a flavanol moiety was proposed. The observed UV absorption peaks at 210, 217 sh, 226, 315 sh, and 335 sh nm in conjunction with a bathochromic shift observed after the addition of aq. KOH suggests the presence of a phenolic flavonoid moiety . The IR spectrum showed absorption bands at 3450 cm−1 for a hydroxy group and at 1647 cm−1 for a carbonyl group. The 1H- and 13C-NMR spectra (Table 1) of 1 showed a trioxygenated flavone moiety [δC 160.7 (C-4′), 183.6 (C-4), 163.3 (C-5), and 166.0 (C-7)] with two meta-coupled protons [δH 6.18 (1H, d, J = 2.4 Hz, H-6), 6.32 (1H, d, J = 2.4 Hz, H-8)] in ring A and with a para-oxygenated phenyl group [δH 6.67 (2H, d, J = 9.0 Hz, H-3′, 5′), 7.26 (2H, d, J = 9.0 Hz, H-2′, 6′)] in ring C; and another 4‴, 3″, 5″, 7″-tetraoxygenated flavan moiety (δC 158.1, 68.9, 154.8 and 156.0) with a para-oxygenated phenyl group [δH 6.70 (2H, d, J = 9.0 Hz, H-3‴, 5‴), 7.10 (2H, d, J = 9.0 Hz, H-2‴, 6‴)] in ring C′ and an aromatic proton [δH 6.04 (1H, s), H-8″] in ring A′. The HMBC spectrum (Figure 2) showed correlations between the singlet H-8″ (δH 6.04) and C-6″ (δC 100.7) and the H-3 in ring C was lack in flavone moiety. These supported the connection between the flavone moiety and the flavan-3-ol moiety is via C-3 and C-6″ linkage. The molecular formula C30H22O10 supported the presence of seven hydroxy groups, which were confirmed by 13C-NMR, HMQC, NOESY and HMBC (Figure 2) experiments. The relative configurations of H-2″ and H-3″ were determined by NOESY spectrum, where H-2″ showed the correlation with H-3″. Comparing with the aglycone levorotatory optical activity of epiafzelechin 5-glucoside [α]D25 −63 (MeOH) , and the absolute configuration of 1 with [α]D25 −77.0 (c 0.03, MeOH) was suggested to be (2″R:3″R). It was found that when dissolved in different solvents, other compounds with (2″R:3″R) structure, e.g., (−)-epicatechin  and (−)-epigallocatechin  also displayed levorotatory optical activity [9,10]. Based on the evidence above, the structure of 1 was elucidated to be 5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4′-hydroxyphenyl)-3-(3″R,5″,7″-trihydroxy-2″R-(4‴-hydroxyphenyl)-3″,4″-dihydro-2H-chromen-6″-yl) -4H-chromen-4-one, and named wikstaiwanone A.
Compound 2 was obtained as pale yellowish amorphous powder with [α]D25 −23.3 (c 0.03, MeOH). Its molecular formula, C30H22O10, was same as 1 and established by ESI-MS and HR-ESI-MS. The IR, UV, and NMR (Table 1) spectra of 2 were similar to those of 1, except that the different resonance of H-2″ (δH 4.53 (1H, d, J = 8.2 Hz), H-3″ (δH 3.68 (1H, br d, J = 8.2 Hz)) in 2 and H-2″ (δH 4.13 (1H, d, J = 7.8 Hz), H-3″ (δH 3.90 (1H, ddd, J = 8.4, 7.8, 6.0 Hz)) in 1. This proposed 2 is a stereoisomer of 1. Referring to the coupling constant J = 8.1 Hz of (−)-catechin with [α]D25 −14.9 (c 1.0, 50% aqueous acetone) , 2 was suggested to be the 3-epimer of 1 and H-2″/H-3″ were in trans-orientation. Thus the absolute configuration of 2 was determined as (2″S:3″R). Based on the above data, compound 2 was determined to be 5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4′-hydroxyphenyl)-3-(3″R,5″,7″-trihydroxy-2″S-(4‴-hydroxyphenyl)-3″,4″-dihydro-2H-chromen-6″-yl)-4H-chromen-4-one, namely wikstaiwanone B, which was further confirmed by HMQC, DEPT, NOESY, and HMBC (Figure 2) experiments.
Compound 3 was isolated as pale yellowish amorphous powder with [α]D25 +53.1 (c 0.058, MeOH). Its molecular formula was determined as C31H24O10 by ESI-MS and HR-ESI-MS with 15 unsaturated degrees. The 1H- and 13C-NMR spectra (Table 2) of 3 were similar to those of chamaejasmine  except a methoxy signal [δH 3.79 (3H, s, OCH3-4′), δC 159.6 (C-4′)] in 3 was in place of a hydroxy group at C-4′ in chamaejasmine. Thus the planar structure of 3 was determined as 3-(5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4-oxochroman-3-yl)-5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2,3-dihydrochromen-4-one. The relation configurations at C-2/C-3 and C-3″/C-2″ positions were decided as trans-trans by comparison of J values of H-2/H-3 with 12.0 Hz and H-3″/H-2″ with 12.0 Hz, and no correlations between H-3/H-2, H-3″/H-2″ were observed. Additionally, H-3 and H-3′ (δH 2.60 (2H, dd, J = 18.0, 12.0 Hz)) with same chemical shift supported the H-3 and H-3′ being at same side. Referring to chamaejasmine  with [α]D −61.2 (c 0.49, MeOH), compound 3 with dextrorotatory optical activity, [α]D +53.1 (c 0.058, MeOH), indicated 3 is an enantiomer of chamaejasmine. According to the above evidence, the structure of 3 was elucidated as to be (2R,3S)-3-((2″R,3″S)-5″,7″-dihydroxy-2″-(4‴-hydroxyl-phenyl)-4-oxochroman-3-yl)-5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2,3-dihydrochromen-4-one, named wikstaiwanone C, which was further confirmed by HMQC, DEPT, NOESY and HMBC (Figure 2) techniques.
2.2. Antitubercular Activity
The amount of sample isolated for 1–7 ranged from about 3 to 42 mg, although all compounds underwent structural characterizations, only Shikokianins B (4) and C (5) (42.3 mg and 35.7 mg respectively) provided sufficient quantity for evaluating their in vitro antitubercular activity against M. tuberculosis H37Rv with the clinical used drug ethambutol (MIC 6.25 μg/mL) as a positive control. Results showed that both 4 and 5 have MIC values of about 15 μg/mL.

Further purification was performed by HPLC (Hitachi; pump: L-2130; UV detector: L-2400).
3.2. Plant Material
Stems of W. taiwanensis were collected in May, 2008 at Mountain Goshifer, Pingtung County, and identified by Professor Ih-Sheng Chen. A voucher specimen (Chen 6163) has been deposited in the Herbarium of the College of Pharmacy, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
3.3. Extraction and Isolation
Dried stems (9.8 kg) of W. taiwanensis were sliced to about 0.5cm in length and extracted three times, each time for 8 hours, with cold MeOH at room temperature to yield a MeOH extract, which was partitioned between EtOAc:H2O (1:1) to provide an EtOAc-soluble fraction (390 g). Both the aqueous and the EtOAc-soluble fractions were studies for their biological activities. The active EtOAc-soluble fraction (70 g) was subjected to Sephadex LH-20 column with CH2Cl2-MeOH (1:1) to obtained 4 fractions (1–4). The bioactive fraction 3 (24 g) was chromatographed on Silica gel CC and eluted with a CH2Cl2-MeOH-H2O gradient solvent system (50:3:1 to 6:4:1) to give fractions 3a-q. Fraction 3b (1.17 g) was subjected to a silica gel CC with CH2Cl2-EtOAc (15:1) to give 10 fractions (3b-1 to 3b-10). Fraction 3b-7 was subjected to MPLC and eluted with CH2Cl2-acetone (15:1) to give 5 (35.7 mg); Fraction 3b-8 was applied to MPLC eluting with CH2Cl2-MeOH (20:1) to give 6 (8.3 mg); and Fraction 3b-9 was purified with MPLC (RP18) eluting with MeOH-H2O (2:1) to give 4 (42.3 mg). Fraction 3e (2.56 g) was subjected to Sephadex LH-20 column and RP18 column successively to give 1 (3.8 mg), 2 (6 mg) and 7 (3 mg).

3.4. Antitubercular Activity Assay
The in vitro antitubercular activity of each tested compound was evaluated using the Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv. Middlebrook 7H10 agar was used to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values as recommended by the proportion method . Briefly, each test compound was added to Middlebrook 7H10 agar supplemented with oleic acid-albumin-dextrose-catalase (OADC) at 50–56° by serial dilution to yield a final concentrations of 100 to 0.8 μg/mL. Ten milliliter samples of each concentration of test compound-containing medium, was dispensed into plastic quadrant Petri dishes. Several colonies of the test isolate of M. tuberculosis were selected to make a suspension with Middlebrook 7H10 broth, and used as the initial inoculum. The inoculum of test isolate of M. tuberculosis was prepared by diluting the initial inoculum in Middlebrook 7H10 broth until turbidity was reduced to that equivalent to that of the McFarland No. 1 standard. Final suspensions were prepared by adding Middlebrook 7H10 broth, and preparing 10−2 dilutions of the standardized bacterial suspensions. After solidification of the Middlebrook 7H10 medium, 33 μL of the 10−2 dilution of the standardized bacterial suspensions was placed on each quadrant of the agar plates. The agar plates were then incubated at 35° with 10% CO2 for 2 weeks. The MIC is the lowest concentration of test compound that completely inhibited the growth of the test isolate of M. tuberculosis, as detected by the unaided eye.
Three new biflavonoids (1–3) together with four known compounds (4–7) were isolated from the stem of W. taiwanensis in this study. Several biflavonoids from Thymelaeaceae have been reported in a number of studies [11–18] and their biological activities evaluated [19–21]. Most of them contain C-3/C-3″ linkage with a symmetrical structure [11–14], except for wikstrols , genkwanols and stelleranol [14–17]. Compounds 1 and 2 were constituted by a flavone and a flavan-3-ol moieties and connected by an unusual C-3/C-6″ linkage, which was found for the first time in nature. The solubility in acetone of 1 and 2 is remarkably different, where 1 dissolved in acetone-d6 slightly, 2 was readily soluble. Incidentally, their antitubercular properties have not previously been reported. In the study, compounds 4 and 5 were evaluated in this respect, and it was revealed that both have MIC values of 15 μg/mL, which is of the same order as the MIC value for ethambutol, a clinically used drug for tuberculosis, i.e. of 6.25 μg/mL. This indicated that the antitubercular activities of isolates from Thymelaeacea may be worth studying further.
