Abstract

The inhibitory effects of caffeoylquinic acids isolated from the leaves of Artemisia species on the histamine release from rat mast cells induced by compound 48/80, and on that induced by concanavalin A plus phosphatidylserine were determined. At the concentration of 2.5 x 10-5m,caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid and methyl chlorogenate exhibited over 50% inhibition of the histamine secretion induced by compound 48/80 from mast cells. The inhibitory effects of caffeic acid and monocaffeoylquinic acids (chlorogenic acid and methyl chlorogenate) were higher than those of dicaffeoylquinic acids on the compound 48/80-induced histamine release from mast cells. On the other hand, caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid and 3,5-di-O-caffeoylquinic acid exhibited over 50% inhibition of the histamine secretion induced by concanavalin A plus phosphatidylserine from mast cells at the concentration of 10-5m.
