Podocarpaside (1), a novel arabinoside possessing a unique triterpene skeleton was isolated from Actaea podocarpa, a closely related species to black cohosh (dietary supplement used for menopausal disorders). Podocarpaside belongs to a new class of triterpenoids, for which the name “ranunculane” is proposed. Compound 1 possesses anticomplement activity.
