Abstract :

Discovery of Glutathione Reductase (GR) inhibitors has become very popular recently due to antimalarial and anticancer activities. In this study, GR inhibitory capacities of some natural compounds, ├?┬▓-sitosterol, ├?┬▓-stigmasterol, diosgenin and jervine, which have steroidal skeleton, were reported. While ├?┬▓-stigmasterol was isolated from Artemisia dracunculus, ├?┬▓-sitosterol, diosgenin and jervine were isolated from rhizomes of Veratrum album. The chemical structures of the compounds were confirmed by IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, 1D and 2D NMR methods. The tested molecules were exhibited much potent inhibitory activities against GR at low micromolar concentrations with IC50 values ranging from 0.1916 to 5.2116 ├?┬╝M as compared with well-known agents. In this study first time, the inhibition effects of ├?┬▓-sitosterol, ├?┬▓-stigmasterol, diosgenin and jervine were determined on glutathione reductase enzyme.
