Two new lupanes, 2 alpha-acetoxy-3 beta-hydroxy-19 beta-hydrogen-lup-20(29)-en-28-oic acid (2-acetoxyalphitolic acid) ( 1) and 2 alpha-hydroxy-3 beta-acetoxy-19 beta-hydrogen-lup-20(29)-en-28-oic acid (3-acetoxyalphitolic acid) ( 2), together with the known betulinic acid ( 3), betulin ( 4), and stimasterol-3- O- beta- D-glucopyranoside ( 5), were isolated from the leaves and twigs of GARCINIA HANBURYI. Compounds 1- 3 were also isolated from the resin of this plant. The structure of 2 was confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. All of the lupanes ( 1- 4) displayed anti-HIV-1 activities in the anti-HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (IC (50) values 16.3-116.9 microg/mL) and syncytium assays (EC (50) 5.6-73.6 microg/mL, SI 1.7-3.3). Moreover compounds 1- 4 exhibited anti-inflammatory activity in an ethyl phenylpropiolate (EPP)-induced ear edema model.
