Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this review, the literature data on the phytochemical and biological investigations on the genus of Meconopsis are summarized from 49 references. Up to now, more than 95 compounds were isolated from 19 Meconopsis plant species. The chemical constituents are mostly alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, steroids, and terpenes, together with minor constituents of essential oil, and others. The crude extracts and metabolites have been found to possess various bioactivities including antitumor activity, central action, cardiovascular system effects, antibiosis, antiviral activity, anti-inflammatory effects, and other biological activities.
