Thrombin is the key serine proteinase of the coagulation cascade and, therefore, a suitable target for inhibition of blood coagulation. An extract of Amanita virosa considerably inhibited thrombin (48%), but showed no inhibitory activity on trypsin. On the basis of inhibition selectivity between thrombin and trypsin and potency of thrombin inhibition, A. virosa constitutes a good starting material for the isolation of further compounds that are active against thrombin. Bioassay oriented fractionation of the extract of A. virosa led to the isolation of a complex mixture of triglycerides (TGs), monoacylglycerols (MAGs), free fatty acids (FAs) and ergosterol. The structures of the isolated lipids metabolites were determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidences.

Abstract

Thrombin is the key serine proteinase of the coagulation cascade and, therefore, a suitable target for inhibition of blood coagulation. An extract of Amanita virosa considerably inhibited thrombin (48%), but showed no inhibitory activity on trypsin. On the basis of inhibition selectivity between thrombin and trypsin and potency of thrombin inhibition, A. virosa constitutes a good starting material for the isolation of further compounds that are active against thrombin. Bioassay oriented fractionation of the extract of A. virosa led to the isolation of a complex mixture of triglycerides (TGs), monoacylglycerols (MAGs), free fatty acids (FAs) and ergosterol. The structures of the isolated lipids metabolites were determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidences.
