Triterpenoids possess a wide range of biological effects. Here, the cytotoxic activities of 55 triterpenes and derived glycosides against BEL-7404 and SGC-7901 cells were assessed, and structure-activity relationships were analysed accordingly. Nine of them effectively inhibited the two cell lines. In particular, compounds 49 and 52 inhibited BEL-7404 cells as efficiently as 5'-fluorouracil (IC50 values 0.46 and 1.48, respectively). Moreover, we found that compounds 49 and 52 induced apoptosisdoi:10.6084/m9.figshare.5160955 fatcat:gr7elrgwnrgnhpqcp2vecwx2ey
