Two new flavano flavanone glycosides, diinsininol (1) and diinsinin (2), have been isolated from the rhizome of Sarcophyte piriei, together with one known flavanone glycoside, naringenin 5-glucoside. Their structures were elucidated on spectroscopic evidence as 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavanyl-7-O-beta-glucosyl-(4 beta-8;2 beta-O-7)-eriodictyol (1) and 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyflavanyl-7-O-beta-glucosyl-(4 beta-8;2 beta-O-7)-naringenin (2), respectively. The compounds were tested for their ability to inhibit prostaglandin synthesis, with 1 and 2 giving IC50 values of 9.20 mu M and 13.14 mu M, respectively, and in the inhibition of platelet-activating-factor-induced exocytosis, IC50 values of 49 and 39 mu M.
