  • 1. Lignans & Phenyl-propanoids Priyanka Goswami
  • 2. IntroductionLignan • • • • • Dimeric compounds formed essentially by the union of the two molecules of a phenylpropene derivative. Not synthesized by lignin biosynthetic pathway. Unlike lignin, optically active and probably arise by stereospecific, reductive coupling between the middle carbons of the side chain of monomer. Some 300 lignans have been isolated and categorized into a number of groups according to structural features. Important pharmaceutical examples are the lignans of Podophyllum spp. which appear to be formed from two molecule of coniferyl alcohol or the corresponding acid with subsequent modification; apparently, a sinapic acid derivative, as might be expected by the inspection of the podophyllotoxin molecule, is not involved.
  • 3. Introduction-Lignan • Neo-lignans are also derived from the same unit as lignans but the C6-C3 moieties are linked head to tail or head to head and not through the beta-beta’ carbons. • They occur in the heart wood of trees of the Mangoliaceae, Lauraceae and Piperaceae. • Example: • Guaicum officinale resin Guaicum sanctum • Myristica fragrans • Piper cubeba • Magnolia officinalis Magnolia obovata: • Magnolol: CNS Action: depressant, muscle relaxant, anti platelet, antimicrobial, anti-tumour, anticancer, insecticidal
  • 4. Introduction-Phenylpropanoids • diverse family of organic compounds that are synthesized by plants from the amino acid phenylalanine. • Their name is derived from the six-carbon, aromatic phenyl group and the three-carbon propene tail of cinnamic acid, which is synthesized from phenylalanine in the first step of phenylpropanoid biosynthesis. • Phenylpropanoids are found throughout the plant kingdom, where they serve as essential components of a number of structural polymers, provide protection from ultraviolet light, defend against herbivores and pathogens, and mediate plantpollinator interactions as floral pigments and scent compounds.
  • 5. IntroductionPhenylpropanoids • Concentrations of phenylpropanoids within plants are also altered by changes in resource availability. • Phenylpropanoids and other phenolics are part of the chemical composition of sporopollenin. • This substance found in pollen is not exactly known, due to its unusual chemical stability and resistance to degradation by enzymes and strong chemical reagents. Analyses have revealed a mixture of biopolymers, containing mainly long chain fatty acids, phenylpropanoids, phenolics and traces of carotenoids. • Tracer experiments have shown that phenylalanine is a major precursor, but other carbon sources also contribute. It is likely that sporopollenin derives from several precursors that are chemically cross-linked to form a rigid structure
