New triterpenoid saponins with strong alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity from the roots of Gypsophila oldhamiana.


:Seven new triterpenoid saponins (1-7), have been isolated and elucidated from the roots of Gypsophila oldhamiana together with five known triterpenoid saponins (8-12). These saponins which could be classified into three series: 3-O-monoglucosides (1, 8, 9), 28-O-monoglucosides (2-4, 12) and 3, 28-O-bidesmosides (5-7, 10, 11), have been evaluated for their alpha-glucosidase inhibition activity. As a result, the preliminary structure-activity relationships were discussed based on the position of sugar linkage attached to the aglycone, and 28-O-monoglucosides 2-4 and 12 showed significant inhibitory activities on alpha-glucosidase.
