Extract of gum resins of Boswellia species contains compounds such as β-boswellic acid (BA) that has been identified as the major bioactive ingredients involved in anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities as well as the treatment for a broad range of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The molecular mechanism of advantageous pharmacological effects of such extracts is still not recognized. In this study, we prepared BA coupled with leucine, isoleucine, valine and alanine in alkaline conditions of reaction. Moreover, we evaluated their pharmaceutical efficacy by measuring acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity. We concluded that some amino acid complexes of BA may be used as potential drugs in the treatment of AD due to suppress AChE activity; however, more in vivo experiments would be needed. © 2014, Global Research Online.
