- Six novel calyxins, named calyxin T-W, ent-calyxin T and ent-calyxin U were isolated from the seeds of Alpinia katsumadai Hayata. Their relative configurations were elucidated by means of detailed UV, IR, NMR and MS spectroscopic data. Their absolute configurations were assigned by collaborative studies on single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, Mosher's method, electronic circular dichroism (ECD), optical rotation and theoretical calculations. These compounds are Friedel-Cranft alkylation adducts composed of coexisted diarylheptanoids and flavanone from the seeds of Alpinia katsumadai. The antiproliferative activity of the six compounds against NCI-H460, HeLa, SMMC-7721 and HCT-116 cell lines was also reported, and most of them showed moderate to strong activities.
