 en Lignanes from the Brazilian Melia azedarach, and their Activity in Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera, Reduviidae)
Marise MO Cabral; Eloi S Garcia & Alphonse Kelecom


A study of the phagoinhibitor and anti-moulting activities of
the Brazilian  Melia azedarach, collected in the State of Rio
de Janeiro, Brazil, allowed the isolation of four lignanes
identified as pinoresinol (1), bis-epi-pinoresinol (2), the
hemicetal (3) and the diacid (4). These substances are devoid
of anti-moulting activity.
