Synthesis and Anti-inflammatory Activity of Fructigenine A Derivatives

  • Published : 2004.01.01


Several derivatives were synthesized from fructigenine A, which was isolated from Penicillium fructigenum. The anti-inflammatory properties of fructigenine A was evaluated in vivo with a 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-induced mouse ear edema model and a carrageenan-induced rat paw edema model. Results showed that the anti-inflammatory activity was significantly higher with fructigenine derivatives than with indomethacin, which was used as a standard. We concluded that fructigenine derivatives could exert an anti-inflammatory effect.
