Biological activity of limonoids from the Rutales.
Limonoids are the most distinctive secondary metabolites of the plant order Rutales. Recent work has established a wide range of biological activities for these compounds, including insect antifeedant and growth regulating properties, a variety of medicinal effects in animals and humans, and antifungal, bacteriocidal, and antiviral activity. This review summarizes the literature on the biological activities of limonoids of known structure, and attempts to relate those activities to current concepts of the evolution of the limonoids.
