Journal of Chemistry, Vol. 42 (1), P. 122 - 124, 2004 STUDY OF DRACAENA ANGUSTIFOLIA
TRAN LE QUAN,1 TRAN KIM QUI,1 SHIGETOSHI KADOTA2 1College of Natural Sciences, National University–Hochiminh City, Hochiminh City 2Institute of Natural Medicine, Toyama Medical & Pharmaceutical University, Toyama, Japan The MeOH extract of Nam ginseng (roots and rhizomes of Dracaena angustifolia) afforded three new spirostanol sapogenins, named namogenins A-C (1-3). Their structures were determined
on basis of spectral analyses and chemical methods. Dracaena angustifolia Roxb. (Dracaenaceae) is locally known as Nam ginseng (ginseng from the South) in Quang Nam province. Its underground parts are used as tonic and for treatment In our continuing studies on Vietnamese medicinal plants, we have examined the constituents of Nam ginseng (D. angustifolia) and isolated three new spirostanol sapogenins. This paper reports the isolation and structure elucidation of these new compounds. Air-dried roots and rhizomes of D. angustifolia were extracted successively by refluxing MeOH, 50% aqueous MeOH and water to give MeOH, MeOH-H O and H O extracts, respectively. The MeOH extract was subjected to Diaion HP-20 column chromatography (CC). The MeOH eluate was further separated by a combination of silica gel and ODS column chromatographies, and normal- and reversed-phase pTLC, to afford three new compounds, named namogenins A-C (1-3).
Negative-ion HRFABMS of 1 displayed a quasi-molecular ion at m/z 461.2859, indicating the
molecular formula C H O . The 1H NMR spectrum of 1 showed signals ascribable to two tertiary
methyls and three secondary methyls, while the 13C NMR spectrum of 1 showed thirty-five signals
(Table 1). Analysis of the COSY and HMQC spectra, together with the molecular formula, suggested 1
to be a spirostane-type steroid, but the 1H and 13C NMR signals ascribable to ring F appeared as pairs of signals, indicating that 1 was a C-25 epimeric mixture. Since its isolation was very difficult, as reported
for similar epimeric mixtures,2 and could not be done, the structure of 1 was elucidated by spectroscopic
Table 1. 13C NMR Data ( ) for Compounds 1-3 in Pyridine-d .
a,b Data for the 25R- and 25S-epimers, respectively. Analysis of the COSY and HMQC spectra indicated the disappearance of the methine carbons assignable to C-14 and C-17, but instead of them, 13C NMR spectrum showed signals of two quaternary carbons at 88.2 and 91.2. Thus, C-14 and C-17 seemed to have hydroxyl groups, which were confirmed by the HMBC correlations of H -21 and H-16 with the quaternary carbon at 91.2 (C-17) and of H -18 with both quaternary carbons at 91.2 (C-17) and 88.2 (C-14). The -orientation of 14-OH and 17-OH was deduced by a comparison of the 13C NMR data with that of (25R)-spirost-5-en-3 ,14 ,17 -triol (ophiogenin).3 Thus, 1 was determined to be a mixture (1:1) of
(25R)- and (25S)-spirost-5-en-1 ,3 ,14 ,17 -tetrol, which were named as (25R)- and 1 R = OH, 25R,S
2 R = H, 25S
Negative-ion HRFABMS of 2 indicated the molecular formula C H O , one oxygen atom
less than 1. The 1H and 13C NMR spectra of 2 were similar to those of 1, indicating 2 also to be a
spirostane-type steroid. However, the signals ascribable to ring F protons and carbons appeared as only one set, and the chemical shifts of H -27 ( 1.06) and of C-23 to C-27 (Table 1) suggested 2 to
be a 25S-spirostane-type steroid.4,5 The 13C NMR spectrum of 2 revealed a highfield shift ( 59.9) of
the oxygenated quaternary carbon assigned to C-17 in 1. Thus, C-17 was considered to be a methine
group, which was confirmed by the 1H-1H connectivity deduced by the analysis of the COSY and HMQC spectra and the HMBC correlations of the methine carbon at 59.9 (C-17) with H -21 ( 1.17), H -18 ( 1.18) and H-16 ( 5.10) and of the quaternary carbon at 86.8 (C-14) with H -18 ( 1.18). Thus, namogenin B was determined to be (25S)-spirost-5-en-1 ,3 ,14 -triol (2).
The molecular formula of namogenin C (3) was determined by negative-ion HRFABMS to be
C H O , two hydrogen atoms less than 1. The 1H and 13C NMR spectra of 3 were almost the same
as those of 1 (Table 1), except for the appearance of signals for an exo-olefin (
108.8) and the disappearance of the signals of a secondary methyl (CH -27) and a methine (CH-25). Thus, 3 was considered to be a 25,27-dehydro derivative of 1, which was supported by the HMBC
correlations of the exo-olefinic protons ( 4.79, H -27) with C-24 ( 28.7) and C-26 ( 64.9). Thus, namogenin C was determined to be spirosta-5,25(27)-dien-1 ,3 ,14 ,17 -tetrol (3).
General Experimental Procedures. Optical rotations were measured on a JASCO DIP-140
digital polarimeter at 25 °C. NMR spectra were recorded on a JEOL JNM-LA400 spectrometer in pyridine-d , using TMS as an internal reference. FABMS and HRFABMS was performed using a JEOL JMS-700T mass spectrometer and glycerol was used as matrix. Plant Material. Nam ginseng (roots and rhizomes of D. angustifolia) were collected in
Quangnam Province, Vietnam, in November 1998. Extraction and Isolation. Air-dried roots and rhizomes of D. angustifolia (440 g) were
extracted by refluxing with MeOH, MeOH-H O and H O successively to give MeOH (78 g), MeOH-H O (77 g) and H O (5.5 g) extracts, respectively. Part of the MeOH extract (70 g) was subjected to Diaion HP-20 CC and eluted with H O and then MeOH to give a MeOH fraction (7.2 g). The MeOH fraction was then chromatographed on silica gel with CHCl -MeOH-H O (14:6:1) to give 7 fractions. Fraction 1 (1.5 g) was again chromatographed on silica gel to give 3 subfractions. Subfraction 2 (520 mg) was separated on normal- (CHCl -MeOH-H O, 14:6:0.5) and reversed-phase (MeOH-MeCN-H O, 2:2:1) pTLC to afford 1 (10 mg), 2 (11.6 mg), 3 (1.6 mg).
