Abstract

Bioassay-directed fractionation of a butanone extract of Monochaetum vulcanicum resulted in the isolation of a new triterpene (1) and four known compounds, ursolic acid (2), 2alpha-hydroxyursolic acid (3), 3-(p-coumaroyl)ursolic acid (4), and beta-sitosteryl-beta-d-galactoside (5). The structure of the new compound 1 was established as 3beta-acetoxy-2alpha-hydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid on the basis of extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic interpretation and chemical derivatization. Compounds 1-3 and 5 exhibited polymerase beta lyase activity.
