Phytoconstituents from the root of Streptocaulon tomentosum and their chemotaxonomical relevance for separation from S. juventas
- A new cardenolide, 17β-H-periplogenin-3-O-β-d-digitoxoside (1), and a new pregnane glycoside, Δ5-pregnene-3β,16α-diol-d-O-[2,4-O-diacetyl-β-digitalopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-β-d-cymaropyranoside]-16-O-[β-d-glucopyranoside] (2) were isolated from the roots of Streptocaulon tomentosum (Asclepiadaceae) together with a series of known compounds. Their chemotaxonomic significance for the separation of S. tomentosum from Streptocaulon juventas is discussed, suggesting a rather clear distinction of these species.
