|Inhibitory effects of licoisoflavones A and B and sophoraisoflavone A of Sophra mooracroftiana Beth ex Baker on copper-ion-induced protein oxidative modification of mice brain homogenate, in vitro.[Pubmed: 11554397]|
|We present the results of an in vitro investigation of the inhibitory effects of licoisoflavone A and Licoisoflavone B and sophoraisoflavone A isolated from Sophra mooracroftiana BETH ex BAKER on copper-induced protein oxidative modification of mice brain homogenate in vitro. Although inhibitory effect of sophoraisoflavone A was stronger than those of licoisoflavone A and Licoisoflavone B, genistein as a related isoflavone, and mannitol as a hydroxy radical scavenger, inhibitory effects of licoisoflavone A and Licoisoflavone B were weaker than those of genistein and mannitol. These results demonstrated that the difference of inhibitory effects are dependent on the relation between chemical structures of these isoflavones, such as hydroxy group or benzopyran, and oxidative stress.|

|Anti-Helicobacter pylori flavonoids from licorice extract.[Pubmed: 12127165]|
|Among the chemical constituents of the plant, glabridin and glabrene (components of Glycyrrhiza glabra), licochalcone A (G. inflata), licoricidin and Licoisoflavone B (G. uralensis) exhibited inhibitory activity against the growth of Helicobacter pylori in vitro. These flavonoids also showed anti-H. pylori activity against a clarithromycin (CLAR) and amoxicillin (AMOX)-resistant strain. We also investigated the methanol extract of G. uralensis. From the extract, three new isoflavonoids (3-arylcoumarin, pterocarpan, and isoflavan) with a pyran ring, gancaonols A[bond]C, were isolated together with 15 known flavonoids. Among these compounds, vestitol, licoricone, 1-methoxyphaseollidin and gancaonol C exhibited anti-H. pylori activity against the CLAR and AMOX-resistant strain as well as four CLAR (AMOX)-sensitive strains. Glycyrin, formononetin, isolicoflavonol, glyasperin D, 6,8-diprenylorobol, gancaonin I, dihydrolicoisoflavone A, and gancaonol B possessed weaker anti-H. pylori activity. These compounds may be useful chemopreventive agents for peptic ulcer or gastric cancer in H. pylori-infected individuals.|

|Lupin pyranoisoflavones inhibiting hyphal development in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.[Pubmed: 20813384]|
|White lupin (Lupinus albus L.), a non-host plant for arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi in the typically mycotrophic family Fabaceae, has been investigated for root metabolites that inhibit hyphal development in AM fungi. Four known pyranoisoflavones, Licoisoflavone B (1), sophoraisoflavone A (2), alpinumisoflavone (3) and 3'-hydroxy-4'-O-methylalpinumisoflavone (4), together with three previously unknown pyranoisoflavones, lupindipyranoisoflavone A (5), 10'-hydroxyLicoisoflavone B (6) and 10'-hydroxysophoraisoflavone A (7) were isolated from the root exudates of white lupin as an inhibitor of germ tube growth in the AM fungus Gigaspora margarita. Pyranoisoflavones 1, 2 and 3 strongly inhibited germ tube growth at 0.63, 1.25 and 0.63 μg/disc, respectively. The remaining compounds 4-7 were either moderate or weak inhibitors that inhibited germ tube growth at concentrations higher than 10 μg/disc. Licoisoflavone B (1) and sophoraisoflavone A (2) completely inhibited hyphal branching induced by a lupin strigolactone, orobanchyl acetate, in G. margarita at 0.16 and 0.63 μg/disc, respectively.|

|Isolation and characterization of antimutagenic components of Glycyrrhiza aspera against N-methyl-N-nitrosourea.[Pubmed: 28074112 ]|
|The powdered ethanolic extract of G. aspera root was sequentially suspended in n-hexane, carbon tetrachloride, dichloromethane, ethyl acetate, and ethanol, and each solvent soluble fraction and the residue were assayed for antimutagenic activity against MNU in S. typhimurium TA1535. The dichloromethane soluble fraction exhibited the highest antimutagenicity and was fractionated several times by silica gel chromatography. The fraction with the highest antimutagenic activity was further purified using HPLC, and the fractions were assayed for antimutagenicity against MNU in S. typhimurium TA1535. Finally, five components with antimutagenic activity against MNU were identified as glyurallin A, glyasperin B, licoricidin, 1-methoxyphaseollin, and Licoisoflavone B. The five components were demonstrated to possess an antigenotoxic effect against carcinogenic MNU for the first time. It is important to prevent DNA damage by N-nitrosamines for cancer chemoprevention.|
