Abstract: Two new triterpenoids, 2α,3β-dihydroxyolean-11,13(18)-dien-19β,28-olide (1) and 3β,5β-dihydroxyglutinol (2), together with eight known compounds (310) were isolated from the roots of Rhaphiolepis indica var. tashiroi (Rosaceae). The structures of 110 were determined by spectroscopic techniques. Among these isolates, 2α,3β-dihydroxyolean-13(18)-en-28-oic acid (9) exhibited inhibitory effect on N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP)-induced superoxide production, with an IC50 value of 16.50 μM.
Keywords: Rhaphiolepis indica var. tashiroi; Rosaceae; roots; triterpenoids; anti-inflammatory activity; inhibition of superoxide production
