- Seven new (1–7) and three known (8–10) abietane diterpenoids were isolated from the methanolic extract of the aerial parts of Isodon lophanthoides var. graciliflorus (Lamiaceae), a folk Chinese medicine and an herb for functional beverages. They were identified as 16-acetoxylsugiol (1), graciliflorin E (2), graciliflorin F (3), 15-O-methylgraciliflorin F (4), 15-hydroxy-20-deoxocarnosol (5), 3β-hydroxysempervirol (6), 15-hydroxy-1-oxosalvibretol (7), abieta-8,11,13-triene-14,19-diol (8), 6,12,15-trihydroxy-5,8,11,13-abietatetraen-7-one (9), and 3α-hinokiol (10) based on the spectroscopic data including COSY (correlated spectroscopy), HMBC (heteronuclear multiple bond correlation), and HR-ESI-MS (high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry). All the compounds except 10 were obtained from I. lophanthoides for the first time. Compounds 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, and 9 exhibited in vitro cytotoxicity against A549 (human lung adenocarcinoma), MCF-7 (human breast adenocarcinoma), and HeLa (human cervical carcinoma) cell lines with the IC50 values of 1.79–52.67μM.
