Abstract: Broussonetia papyrifera (B. papyrifera) is a deciduous tree of the genus Broussonetia of Mo-raceae. Its roots, stems, leaves, skins, fruits and seeds can be used as folk medicine. Modern technology research showed that the B. papyrifera was rich in flavonoids and triterpenoids, and its components exhibited anti-proliferation, antibacterial, anti-oxidation, cytotoxicity, enzyme inhibition and other activities. In this paper, we summarized the progress in the chemical constituents and bioactivities of B. papyrifera since 2000 to provide ideas for the medicinal development prospects of B. papyrifera.


Key words: Broussonetia papyrifera, chemical constituents, bioactivities, progress
