Identification, structural modification, and dichotomous effects on human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication of ingenane esters from Euphorbia kansui.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Euphorbia kansui showed potent anti-HIV-1 activity during screening of a library composed of plant extracts from Euphorbiaceae and Thymelaeaceae families. Bioassay-guided isolation led to identification of ingenane esters as the active compounds. Further chemical modification resulted in 3-(2-naphthoyl)ingenol (23), which exhibited the most potent anti-HIV-1 activity. Compound 23 also acted as an HIV-1-latency-reversing agent on activation of HIV-1 replication in a latently infected U1 cell model and a T cell latent HIV-1 model JLat-A2.
