AbstractBrassica rapa var. rapa (turnip) is an important crop in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) with anti-hypoxic effect. Turnip is rich in glucosinolates, isothiocyanates and phenolic compounds with diverse biological activities, involving anti-oxidant, anti-tumor, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, hypolipidemic, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, nephroprotective and analgesic properties. In this study, the ethyl acetate (EtOAc) and butanol parts of Brassica rapa were first revealed with inhibitory effects on alpha-glucosidase, whereas the water part was inactive. Subsequent bioassay-guided isolation on the EtOAc and butanol parts yielded 12 compounds, involving three indole derivatives, indole-3-acetonitrile (1) 4-methoxyindole-3-acetonitrile (2) and indole-3-aldehyde (3) two flavonoids, liquiritin (4) and licochalcone A (5) two phenylpropanoids, sinapic acid (6) and caffeic acid (7) two phenylethanol glycosides, 2-phenylethyl beta-glucopyranoside (8) and salidroside (9) and three other compounds, syringic acid (10) adenosine (11) and (3 beta, 20E)-ergosta-5, 20 (22)-dien-3-ol (12) Licochalcone A (5) and caffeic acid (7) showed alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity with IC50 values of 62.4 +/- 8.0 mu M and 162.6 +/- 3.2 mu M, comparable to the positive control, acarbose (IC50 = 142 +/- 0.02 mu M). Docking study suggested that licochalcone A (5) could well align in the active site of alpha-glucosidase (docking score = -52.88) by forming hydrogen bonds (Gln1372, Asp1420, Gln1372, Arg1510), hydrophobic effects (Tyr1251, Tyr1251, Trp1355, Phe1560, Ile1587, Trp1355, Phe1559, Phe1559) and pi-pi stacking interaction (Trp1355). This study provides valuable information for turnip as a new resource in searching anti-diabetic candidates.
