Abstract

Cell growth inhibitory constituents of the French Guiana medicinal tree Guarea guidona L. Sleumer (also known as G. trichilioides, Meliaceae) were investigated by bioassay (PS in vitro) directed isolation procedures. A chloroform extract of the root bark was found to contain a new PS in vitro (ED50 0.47–0.74 µg/ml) active limonoid characterized (principally by 250 MHz nmr measurements) as 14,15β-epoxyprieurianin (10a). The root bark was also found to contain prieurianin (1, PS EDso 4.4–7.8 µg/ml) and 7-oxo-gedunin (9, PS inactive).
