1. Antioxidative and acute anti-inflammatory effects
In the investigation of the antioxidative and anti-inflammatory activities of the extract of the flower of Campsis grandiflora (Thunb.) K. Schum. Exposure of human dermal fibroblasts to 50% EtOH extract of Campsis grandiflora flower (ECG) at 10 and 100 microg/ml, indicated a significant protective effect against hydrogen peroxide (300 microM). ECG not only protected cell survival from H(2)O(2)-induced toxicity, but also inhibited the H(2)O(2)-induced leakage of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzyme release and DNA fragmentation significantly. It was also found that ECG showed scavenging activities of radicals and reactive oxygen species with IC(50) values of 20 microg/ml against 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical and 52 microg/ml against superoxide radicals in the xanthine/xanthine oxidase system, respectively(1).

2. Cholesterol acyltransferase inhibitors

Schum. extracted with 80% aqueous MeOH, and the concentrated extract partitioned with EtOAc, n-BuOH and H2O, showed that from the result of physico-chemical data including NMR, MS and IR, the chemical structures of the compounds were determined as 3beta-hydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid (oleanolic acid, 1), 3beta-hydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid (ursolic acid, 2), 3beta-hydroxyurs-12-en-28-al (ursolic aldehyde, 3), 2alpha,3beta-dihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid (maslinic acid, 4), 2alpha,3beta-dihydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid (corosolic acid, 5), 3beta,23-dihydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid (23-hydroxyursolic acid, 6) and 2alpha,3beta,23-trihydroxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid (arjunolic acid, 7). These teriterpenoids were isolated for the first time from this plant. Also, compounds 4, 5, 6, and 7 revealed relatively high hACAT-1 inhibitory activity with the value of 46.2+/-1.1, 46.7+/-0.9, 41.5+/-1.3 and 60.8+/-1.1% at the concentration of 100 microg/mL, respectively(2).
