Labelled 1,4-O-Didesmethyl rac-Niranthin is an intermediate in the synthesis of rac-Niranthin (N481000), a lignan compound isolated from the plant Phyllanthus amarus and shows anti-leishmanial activity. It acts through induction of topoisomerase I-mediated DNA-protein adduct formation in Leishmania cells triggering apoptosis of cellular nucleases. It also maintains the ability to reduce uric acid concentrations through xanthine oxidase inhibition.
