An aqueous ethanol extract of Artemisia argyi inhibited the aminoacylation activity of LeuRS from Giardia lamblia (GlLeuRS). The bioassay-guided fractionation of the extract led to the isolation of 3,5-dicaffeoylquinic acid (1), with an IC(50) of 5.82μg/mL. The ester derivatives of 1 were also found to possess strong anti-GlLeuRS effects, with IC(50) values of 1.79, 5.51 and 2.56μg/mL respectively. Anti-giardial assay showed that the derivatives, especially 3,5-dicaffeoylquinic acid propyl ester (4) (IC(50)=4.62μg/mL), were effective at killing G.lamblia.
