Discussion The genus Senecio is the largest and most complex genus in the Asteraceae and include more than 1500 species with a worldwide distribution [ 1 ]. Aerial parts of several species of Senecio natives of the north of Chile are widely employed in the folk medicine as remedy for the altitudinal sickness [ 2 ], [ 3 ], [ 4 ].

-ground aerial parts of Senecio lyratus, an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial active compound was isolated and identified as ß-sito- sterol by spectroscopic analysis. Introduction The genus Senecio (Asteraceae) has been widely investigated and nearly all species contain pyrroli- zidine alkaloids (PA) as the most characteristic metabolites (Bull, 1968; Bick, 1985; Mattocks, 1986; Rizk, 1991; Böttcher et al., 1993; Vrieling et al., 1993; Obuya et al., 1993; Grue and Liddell, 1993; and Cheng et al., 1993). PA’s have been found to possess interesting medicinal properties

The major components of these waxes were identified to be pentacyclic triterpenes. Some of these are rare natural products, while others are rather widespread. Introduction Most species of Kalanchoe (Crassulaceae) are more or less succulent xerophytes. The large Com­ positae genus Senecio also houses

. Naturforsch. 2008, 63b, 331 – 334; received September 20, 2007 Three new eremophilanolides (1 – 3) and several known compounds were isolated from Roldana lobata. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. The cyto- toxicity of the isolated compounds was tested against selected cancer cell lines. Key words: Roldana lobata, Senecioneae, Eremophilanolides Introduction The genus Roldana (Asteraceae, Senecioneae, Tus- silagininae), spread from southern Arizona and New Mexico to Panamá, groups 48 species segregated from the genus Senecio [1, 2

were identified in S. aegyptius var. discoideus, 8 in S. desfontainei and 13 in S. cineraria. Some of these alkaloids have not been reported from these plants. The alkaloidal pattern of different plant organs (flowers, leaves, stem, root) were also investigated. Senecionine has been found to be a one of the major alkaloid in all studied species, it was isolated and its structure was elucidated by 1H- and 13C-NMR. Introduction Numerous taxa of the genus Senecio (Composi- tae) are rich in PAs exhibiting hepatotoxic, muta- genic, carcinogenic and antitumor activities

the most important genus of the tribe Senecioneae (Asteraceae) and includes about 1500 species widespread all over the world (Tahtajian et al., 1981). In the Bulgarian flora genus Senecio is represented by 16 species. One of them, Senecio macedonicus is a Balkan endemit (Andreev et al., 1992). Up to now the following mono- and open chain diester pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) were isolated and identified: 7-angeloylretronecine, 9- angeloylretronecine, 7-angeloylplatynecine, 9-an- geloylplatynecine and mixture of sarracine and neosarracine (Christov et al., 1997
