Three new oligoacylated sucroses designated atractysucroses-I, -II, and -III were obtained from Atractylodis Lanceae Rhizoma as multidrug resistance (MDR) modulating substances against human carcinoma cell lines and their chemical structures were characterized as a mixture of acyl groups. Atractysucrose-I modulates MDR in KB-C2 cells as strongly as verapamil. This is the first example of an MDR-modulator classified as a carbohydrate. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
