Abstract

Assay-guided fractionation of the ethanol extract of Nymphaea odorata resulted in the identification of two lignans, one new (1) and one known (2), together with six known flavonol glycosides (3-8). The structures of 1-8 were established by spectroscopic analysis as nymphaeoside A (1), icariside E(4) (2), kaempferol 3-O-alpha-l-rhamnopyranoside (afzelin, 3), quercetin 3-O-alpha-l-rhamnopyranoside (4), myricetin 3-O-alpha-l-rhamnopyranoside (myricitrin, 5), quercetin 3-O-(6' '-O-acetyl)-beta-d-galactopyranoside (6), myricetin 3-O-beta-d-galactopyranoside (7), and myricetin 3-O-(6' '-O-acetyl)-beta-d-galactopyranoside (8). Compounds 3, 4, and 7 showed marginal inhibitory effect against fatty acid synthase with IC(50) values of 45, 50, and 25 microg/mL, respectively.
