  • D. N. OlennikovEmail author

Asparagus burjaticus Peschkova (Asparagaceae) is a perennial species occurring in Russia only in forest-steppe regions of southern Republic of Buryatia and belongs to the series Foliati (species with developed cladodes), subsection Leptantheri in the phylogenetically young section Neoasparagus, genus Asparagus [1]. Roots of A. burjaticus in Tibetan medicine (nye shing) and other Asparagus species (A. dauricus, A. filicinus, A. racemosus) were used as decoctions and tonics to increase lifespan and for female, lymphatic, renal, and skin diseases [2]. Buryat lamas used fruit of A. burjaticus (pan bras) for heart defects [3]. It is recommended in Mongolian medicine as a diuretic [4]. Chemical studies of this species have not been reported. Therefore, the present work studied the compositions of triterpenoids and phenolic compounds from aerial and subterranean organs of A. burjaticus.

Plants of A. burjaticuswere collected in the Republic of Buryatia (in the vicinity of Shaluty, Tarbagatai...
