Laurelia Philippiana Looser

Nota de alcance

PARTE UTILIZADA= Used part: Hojas, flores, corteza.

ACCIÓN FARMACOLÓGICA= Pharmacological action: Anticefalálgico, antivenéreo, antiespasmódico.

COMPOSICIÓN QUÍMICA= Chemical composition: Asimilobine, anonaine, noreorydine, nornantenine, (+)-reticuline and the new alkaloid, 4-hydroxyanonaine, were isolated from Laurelia philippiana bark. The biogenetically related obovanine, oxoputerine and (-)-romneine, not known as a natural product, were obtained from the bark of L. novae-zelandiae. The occurrence of (R)-norlaudanosoline-derived alkaloids in L. novae-zelandiae is a distinctive feature of this tree. Neither L. novae-zelandiae nor L. philippiana accumulate dimeric benzylisoquinoline alkaloids to any appreciable extent in the trunk bark, differing in this respect from L. sempervirens, the only other Laurelia species. © 1982.

ZONA GEOGRAFICA= Geografical zone: S. de Argentina y Chile.
