Abstract

A new polyacetylenic diepoxide compound, gummiferol [1] was isolated from the leaves of Adenia gummifera by KB cytotoxicity-guided fractionation. Compound 1 exhibited significant activity against the KB human cell line and a broad cytotoxic spectrum against other human cancer cell lines. The structure of 1 was established primarily on the basis of its spectral data
