Title

Protopanaxatriol-type ginsenosides from the root of Panax ginseng

Language

Abstract

Ginseng, the root of Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer (Araliaceae), is one of the most important traditional medicines and functional foods. A detailed phytochemical investigation on the roots of P. ginseng led to the isolation of 6 new natural protopanaxatriol (PPT)-type ginsenosides, ginsenosides Re 1-Re6 (compounds 1-6), along with 10 known PPT-type ginsenosides. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic analyses, including high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) and 1D and 2D nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The unusual α-d- glucopyranosyl-(1→3)-β-d-glucopyranosyl sugar chain, as found in compounds 1 and 2, is reported in the genus Panax for the first time. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
