The phytochemical study of Galium tunetanum Lam., Rubiaceae, leaves led to the isolation of thirteen compounds from the chloroform-methanol and the methanol extracts, including six iridoid glycosides, one non-glycoside iridoid, two p-coumaroyl iridoid glycosides, two phenolic acids, and two flavonoid glycosides. The structural determination of the isolated compounds was performed by mono- and bidimensional NMR spectroscopic data, as well as ESI-MS experiments. All compounds were isolated from this species for the first time. The anti-angiogenic effects of the isolated iridoids were also reported on new blood vessels formation using the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane as in vivo model. Results showed that among the isolated iridoids tested at the dose of 2 μg/egg, asperuloside (1), geniposidic acid (2), and iridoid V1 (3) reduced microvessel formation of the chorioallantoic membrane on morphological observations using a stereomicroscope. The anti-angiogenic effects of the active compounds, expressed as percentages of inhibition versus control, were 67% (1), 59% (2), and 54% (3), respectively. In addition, the active compounds were able to inhibit angiogenesis in the chorioallantoic membrane assay, in a dose-dependent manner (0.5-2 μg/egg) as compared to the standard retinoic acid.

Abstract

The phytochemical study of Galium tunetanum Lam., Rubiaceae, leaves led to the isolation of thirteen compounds from the chloroform-methanol and the methanol extracts, including six iridoid glycosides, one non-glycoside iridoid, two p-coumaroyl iridoid glycosides, two phenolic acids, and two flavonoid glycosides. The structural determination of the isolated compounds was performed by mono- and bidimensional NMR spectroscopic data, as well as ESI-MS experiments. All compounds were isolated from this species for the first time. The anti-angiogenic effects of the isolated iridoids were also reported on new blood vessels formation using the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane as in vivo model. Results showed that among the isolated iridoids tested at the dose of 2 μg/egg, asperuloside (1), geniposidic acid (2), and iridoid V1 (3) reduced microvessel formation of the chorioallantoic membrane on morphological observations using a stereomicroscope. The anti-angiogenic effects of the active compounds, expressed as percentages of inhibition versus control, were 67% (1), 59% (2), and 54% (3), respectively. In addition, the active compounds were able to inhibit angiogenesis in the chorioallantoic membrane assay, in a dose-dependent manner (0.5-2 μg/egg) as compared to the standard retinoic acid.
