The genus Tetracera (family Dilleniaceae) contains about 50 species with a pantropical distribution, of which 20 occur in the Neotropical area. In traditional folk medicine, some species have been used as febrifuge, diuretic agent, and antijaundice . Tetracera species has been reported to exhibit a broad range of pharmacological activities such as antidiabetic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antipyrexic, anti-HIV and anti-reverse transcriptase, antihyperglycemic, anti-mycobacterial, antioxidant, anti-ulcerogenic, hepatoprotective, DNA polymerase β-inhibitory, glucose-uptake modulating, and xanthine oxidase inhibition activity [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12]. Previous phytochemical investigations of members of this genus have resulted in the isolation of several classes of compounds, including flavonoids and terpenoids [9, 10, 11, 12, 13]. Among them, flavonoids from T. indica induced significant adipogenesis like insulin and enhanced adipogenesis like rosiglitazone ....
