By use of the model virus, expressing the HCV envelope proteins E1 and E2, bioassay guided separation of the MeOH extract from Rosa rugosa Thunb. disclosed tellimagrandin I (1) together with eugeniin (2) and casuarictin (3) as the potent HCV invasion inhibitors. Furthermore, structure-activity relationship analysis of some relative tannins including the synthesized analogs elucidated the partial structures crucial for potent activity of 1.
