Four new triterpene glycosides of the holostane series have been isolated from an alcoholic extract of the economically important Pacific Ocean holothurianCucumaria japonica: cucumariosides A1-2 (I), A2-3 (II), A2-4 (III), and A4-2 (IV). The structures of these substances have been established by the methods of carbohydrate chemistry and13C NMR spectroscopy.
