Ten active principles (compounds 1-10) have been isolated following protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) assay-guided fractionation of the methanol extract of the root of Polygonum cuspidatum. The chemical structures of the compounds were characterized mainly by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopic and physicochemical data. This is the first time that 9,10-anthraquinones (compounds 5-6) have been isolated from P. cuspidatum, and this is the first record of compound 9 from the genus Polygonum. Except for compound 4, all the isolates showed potential inhibitory activity against PTP1B with half-maximal inhibitory concentration IC50 values ranging from 6.3 to 28.9 µM. Further...
