Two new triterpenoid saponins (1 and 2), together with two known saponins (3 and 4) were isolated from Bupleurum marginatum Wall. ex DC. Their structures were elucidated by the comprehensive spectroscopic analysis. Compounds 1 and 2 represented the rare example of an oleanane-type triterpenoid with two sugar moieties at C-3 and C-28. The cytotoxic activity of four compounds was evaluated against normal heptocell BRL-3A in vitro.
