Seven new cucurbitane glucosides, 11-oxomogrosides III E and IV (1 and 2), 11-oxoisomogroside V (3), 7-oxomogrosides III E and IV (4 and 5), and mogrosides VI A and VI B (6 and 7), were separated from the crude extract of Siraitia grosvenorii. The new structures were defined by analysis of their 1H and 13C NMR, 2D NMR, and HRESIMS data. Especially, the band-selective constant time HSQC and band-selective constant time HMBC techniques were recuited to elucidate the structures of the complex glucoside moieties. Using the PGC-1α promoter driven luciferase reporter assay, the isolated compounds were examined for PGC-1α promoter activity.
