Supplementary Material

HPLC chromatograms of Kalanchoe pinnata flowers aqueous extract, organic fractions (EtOAcF and BuOHF), and isolated flavonoid [quercetin 3-O-α-L-arabinopyranosyl (1→2) α-L-rhamnopyranoside] (KPFV) are available on Supplementary Material. HPLC analyses were performed on a Shimadzu SPD-M10A VP instrument, using an RP-18 reverse-phase column (5 μm, 250 mm x 4 mm, Lichro-CART/Lichrospher 100; Merck). The main flavonoid in K. pinnata is abundant in both fractions. 1H and 13 spectra of the flavonoid, recorded on a Varian MR-500 NMR spectrometer (1H: 500 MHz; 13C: 125 MHz), are also available.
