The methanolic extract of Dictamnus dasycarpus root barks afforded one new glycosidic quinoline alkaloid, 3-[1β-hydroxy-2-(β-D-glucopyranosyloxy) -ethyl)-4-methoxy-2(1H)-quinolinone (1), together with nine known compounds, preskimmianine (2), 8-methoxy-N-methylflindersine (3), dictamine (4), γ-fagarine (5), halopine (6), skimmianine (7), dictangustine-A (8), iso-γ-fagarine (9), isomaculosidine (10). The isolated alkaloids significantly inhibited nitric oxide (NO) production in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated BV2 cells. Among them, compounds 3 and 7 showed the most potent inhibitory activities on LPS-induced NO production.
