Hillasides A and B, two new cytotoxic triterpene glycosides from the sea cucumber Holothuria hilla Lesson.

Wu J , Yi YH , Tang HF , Wu HM , Zhou ZR .

Two new triterpene glycosides, hillasides A (1) and B (2), were isolated from the sea cucumber H. hilla Lesson, together with one known glycoside holothuria B (3). Their structures were deduced by extensive spectral analysis and chemical evidences. The presence of conjugated double bonds [22E,24-diene] in the aglycone of 1 is a rare structural feature among sea cucumber glycosides. The two glycosides showed significant cytotoxicity against eight human tumour cell lines (A-549, MCF-7, IA9, CAKI-1, PC-3, KB, KB-VIN and HCT-8) with IC(50) in the range of 0.1-3.8 microg/ml.
