Abstract

Eight stilbenoids, 1-(p-hydroxybenzyl)-4,8-dimethoxyphenanthrene-2,7-diol (1), 2,7-dihydroxy-1,3-bis(p-hydroxybenzyl)-4-methoxy-9,10-dihydrophenanthrene (2), 4,7-dihydroxy-1-(p-hydroxybenzyl)-2-methoxy-9,10-dihydrophenanthrene (3), 3,3'-dihydroxy-2',6'-bis(p-hydroxybenzyl)-5-methoxybibenzyl (4), 3',5-dihydroxy-2-(p-hydroxybenzyl)-3-methoxybibenzyl (5), blestriarenes B (6) and C (7), and blestrianol A (8) have been isolated by the guidance of inhibitory effect of tubulin polymerization from the tubers of Bletilla striata (Orchidaceae). Among them, both of bisbenzyls 4 and 5 inhibited the polymerization of tubulin at IC(50) 10muM, respectively. Furthermore bisbenzyl 4 potentiated the cytotoxicity of SN-38 in BCRP-transduced K562 (K562/BCRP) cells.
