Abstract

MODAK, BRENDA; TORRES, RENÉ  and  URZUA, ALEJANDRO. SEASONAL VARIATION OF THE FLAVONOIDS PINOCEMBRIN AND 3-O-METHYLGALANGIN, IN THE SURFACE COMPONENT MIXTURE (RESINOUS EXUDATES AND WAXY COATING) OF HELIOTROPIUM STENOPHYLLUM. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2011, vol.56, n.1, pp.532-534. ISSN 0717-9707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072011000100002.

In this report we study the seasonal variation of the flavonoids pinocembrin and 3-O-methylgalangin in the surface component mixture (resinous exudate and waxy coating) of Heliotropium stenophyllum. The quantitative analysis of the flavonoids was performed using high-performance liquid chromatography of samples collected monthly over a whole year. The results showed an increase in the spring and summer yield of surface components and a decrease during the winter. Although the sum of pinocembrin and 3-O-methylgalangin did not follow a pattern related with hydric stress, UV radiation or high temperature during the year, a relationship between pinocembrin and 3-O-methylgalangin was found. On average during the months of September to August, excluding March, the amount of pinocembrin decreased wile the amount of 3-O-methylgalangin increased. The results suggest that the above compounds may play different ecophysiological functions during plant development and are consistent with the biosynthetic relationship between the two compounds.

Keywords : Heliotropium stenophyllum; surface components; seasonal variation pinocembrin; 3-O-methylgalangin.
