Abstract
Seven taxane diterpenes were isolated from the EtOH extract of the aerial p arts of Taxus chinensis. and evaluated for cytotoxicity against nine human cell lines, including a beta -tublin mutant resistant to paclitaxel. Compou nd 2 a non-alkaloid-type taxane diterpene, showed significant cytotoxicity in most cell lines, and notably, equipotent against both parental and beta -tubiin mutant tumor cell lines.
