Scutellaria is one of the most widely used traditional Chinese herbal medicines, and the other name is “HuangQin” in Chinese [1]. Its root is the traditional medicinal part and has been listed in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia for a long time [2]. The aerial parts of Scutellaria also have diverse and strong therapeutic functions and potentially beneficial effects, such as cardiovascular [3], neuroprotective [4], antitubercular [5], memory improving [6], antitumor [7], and antibacterial activity [8]. There have been previous investigations on the chemical constituents of the roots of Scutellaria luzonica Rolfe, and 18 flavonoids, including 13 flavones, two flavanones, one chalcone, and one flavone glycoside, were isolated from this plant [9]. However, Scutellaria luzonica is a variant of Scutellaria luzonica, and the chemical constituents and bioactivities of S. luzonica have not been reported. In order to search for the bioactive chemical constituents of S. luzonica, 14 flavonoid...
