A new acylated oleanane triterpenoid from Couepia polyandra that inhibits the lyase activity of DNA polymerase beta.


Bioassay-directed fractionation of a n-hexane extract of Couepia polyandra using an assay to detect inhibitors of the lyase activity of DNA polymerase beta resulted in the isolation of the new triterpene 3beta,16beta,23-triacetoxyolean-12-en-28-oic acid (1) and four known compounds, oleanolic acid, betulinic acid, stigmasterol, and beta-sitosterol. The structure of the new compound was established on the basis of extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic interpretation. All five compounds inhibited DNA polymerase beta lyase activity.
