Constituents of holothuroidea, 12. Isolation and structure of glucocerebrosides from the sea cucumber Holothuria pervicax.

Yamada K , Sasaki K , Harada Y , Isobe R , Higuchi R .

Ten glucocerebrosides, HPC-3-A-HPC-3-J, have been isolated from their obtained parent glucocerebroside molecular species HPC-3, together with other glucocerebroside molecular species HPC-1 and HPC-2, from the less polar lipid fraction of a chloroform/methanol extract of the sea cucumber Holothuria pervicax. The structures of these glucocerebrosides have been determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence. Reversed-phase HPLC, including a recycling system, was effective in isolating these glucocerebrosides, revealing a very close resemblance in structure, though the problem due to regio-isomers remains.
