Abstract

Two bufodienolides have been isolated in the individual form from the Central Asian green toadBufo viridis for the first time. It has been established by1H NMR, mass spectrometry, and x-ray structural analysis that these compounds are gamabufotalin (3β, 11α, 14-trihydroxy-5β, 14ß-bufa-20,22-dienolide) and a crystalline modification of arenobufagin (3β, 11α, 14-trihydroxy-12-oxo-5β, 14β-bufa-20,22-dienolide). The biological activity of Bakagin — the total bufadienolides of the venom ofB. viridis, consisting predominantly of the compounds named — has been studied. The promising nature of a further study of Bakagin as a cardiotonic drug has been shown.
