Ethnopharmacological relevance: Gynostemma pentaphyllum (Thunb.) tea was used in Vietnamese folk medicine as anti-diabetic agent. Aim of the study: This studywas aimed to investigate the inhibitory activities of fractions and constituents isolated from Gynostemma pentaphyllum on protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) since it has been proposed as a treatment therapy for type 2 diabetes and obesity. Materials and methods: The 70% EtOH extract, CHCl3 fraction, EtOAc fraction, BuOH fraction, and seven isolated dammarane triterpeneswere evaluated for their inhibitory activity in protein phosphatase enzymes (PTP1B and VHR). Results: CHCl3-soluble fraction showed a dose-dependent inhibitory activity of the PTP1B enzyme with the IC50 value of 30.5μg/mL. Among seven tested compounds, compounds 6 showed the most potent PTP1B inhibitory activity with IC50 value of 5.3±0.4μM compared to a rangeμM for the other six compounds. The inhibition mode of 6 was competitive toward p-NPP with a Ki value of 2.8μM. Conclusion: These study results suggested that the PTP1B inhibitory activity of these dammaranes may enable this plant to play an important role in the treatment of diabetes.
