Fagopyrum tataricum (L.) Gaertn. is an effective medical plant, and is also used as a healthy and adjuvant therapy functional food. Although a considerable amount of scientific research was reported on F. tataricum in the last decades, it is currently scattered across various publications. The present review comprises the traditional uses and ethnobotanical, phytochemical and pharmacological research on F. tataricum in the last decades. A large number of chemical studies and pharmacological during the last decades have demonstrated the vast medicinal potential of F. tataricum. The objective of this review is to bring together most of the scientific research available on F. tataricum and evaluate its effects and mechanisms.

Chemical investigation on the whole plants of Stenosolenium saxatile led to the isolation of three naphthoquinones (1–3), five pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) (4–8), and six phenolic acids (9–14). The structure of the isolated compounds was elucidated by different spectrometric methods (1H NMR, 13C NMR and ESI-MS). These results are the first chemical data on constituents of this genus. The chemotaxonomic relationships between the genera Stenosolenium, Onosma, Arnebia, Echium and Lithospermum are also discussed. © 2017

Ethnopharmacological relevance As a group of important medicine plants, Boschniakia rossica (Cham. et Schltdl) Fedtsch. and B. himalaica Thoms, which are the only two species in the genus Boschniakia (Orobanchaceae), have long been used in traditional Chinese medicine for their multiple therapeutic uses related to enhanced renal function, erectile dysfunction, defaecate and hepatoprotective. Additionally, the two species are also used as dietary supplements in wine, cosmetics, and other healthy food. Aim of the review By providing comprehensive information and data of genus Boschniakia on botany, traditional medicinal uses, phytochemistry, pharmacological research and toxicology, this review aims to summary the group of natural compounds from Boschniakia discovered so far. The other aims are to reference research findings of their biological activities and functions in medicine, physiology, and cell biology to highlight the compound candidates which can be used for further drug discovery in several pharmaceutical areas including antioxidation, anticancer, anti-inflammation, anti-senile, and immunology. Materials and methods All of the available information on B. rossica and B. himalaica was collected from the electronic resources (such as PubMed, SciFinder Scholar, CNKI, TPL (, Google Scholar, Baidu Scholar, and Web of Science). Results After a comprehensive analysis of the literatures from available online sources, the results show that both species of genus Boschniakia are valuable and popular herbal medicines with potentials to cure various ailments. The phytochemical studies revealed that the chemical compositions of this genus were mainly iridoid glycosides and phenylpropanoid glycosides. To date, 112 compounds have been isolated from the genus, while their crude extracts and purified compounds have been found to possess a wide range of biological activities including anti-senile, antitumor and anticancer, anti-inflammatory, protecting liver, boost memory, anti-oxidation, anti-lipid peroxidative, and antiviral activities. Conclusions The existing traditional uses of the genus Boschniakia have been evaluated, and the properties of the genus are summarized based on botany, phytochemistry, pharmacological research, and toxicology. This review aims to introduce the utilization and application of the genus Boschniakia to modern drug discovery, traditional medicinal plant utilization, herbal species conservation, and the development of medicinal and health-maintaining products. © 2016 Elsevier Ireland Ltd

In this paper, twenty-two compounds including twenty-one flavonoids (1-21) and one alkaloid (22) were isolated from Panzeria alaschanica, in which seventeen flavonoids (1-2, 5-11, 13-20) were isolated from P. alaschanica and four flavonoid p-coumaroylglucosides (15-18) from the genus Panzeria for the first time. The occurrence of flavonoid p-coumaroylglucosides and alkaloids might be employed as the common characteristic constituents of the genera Panzeria, Leonurus, Lagochilus, Lagopsis and Marrubium. © 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

Phytochemical investigation of Gentianella turkestanorum (Gentianaceae) afforded nineteen compounds, including six xanthones (1-6), two triterpenoids (7-8), eight flavones (9-16) and three iridoids (17-19). Here, we firstly reported that 1-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyxanthone (4), 1, 8-dihydroxy-3-methoxyxanthone (5), apigenin (9), quercetin (10), luteolin-7-O-glucoside (12) and three other compounds (1, 8-dihydroxy-3-methoxyxanthone (5), apigenin-7-O-gluco (1″ → 3‴) glucoside (15) and luteolin-7-O-gluco (1″ → 3‴) glucoside (16)) could be isolated from G. turkestanorum. The occurrence of chemical data and the sequence data might be employed as common constituents of the genera Gentianella, Lomatogonium and Swertia. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
