Description: Netzahualcoyonol, the crude dichloromethane bark extract of Salacia petenensis (Hippocrateaceae) shows antibacterial and cytotoxic activity. Bioactivity-directed separation led to the isolation of tingenone and netzahualcoyonol as the biologically active materials. Also isolated from the extract were 3-methoxyfriedel-2-en-1-one (a new natural product) and 29-hydroxyfriedelan-3-one. The molecular orbital calculations suggest that a possible mode of cytotoxic action of quinone-methide triterpenoids involves quasi-intercalative interaction of the compounds with DNA followed by nucleophilic addition of the DNA base to carbon-6 of the triterpenoid.
