Betulinic acid is a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpenoid which has antiretroviral, antimalarial, and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as a more recently discovered potential as an anticancer agent, by inhibition of topoisomerase.It is found in the bark of several species of plants, principally the white birch (Betula pubescens) from which it gets its name, but also the ber tree (Ziziphus mauritiana), selfheal (Prunella vulgaris), the tropical carnivorous plants Triphyophyllum peltatum and Ancistrocladus heyneanus, Diospyros leucomelas, a member of the persimmon family, Tetracera boiviniana, the jambul (Syzygium formosanum),flowering quince (Chaenomeles sinensis), rosemary, and Pulsatilla chinensis

1.Anti-tumor, anti-HIV agent which induces apoptosis via activation of caspases.
2.The potential of betulinic acid was tested using three human melanoma cell lines, MEL-1, -2, -3, and -4. The growth of all of the cell lines was inhibited significantly by treatment with betulinic acid.
3.Betulinic acid seems to work by inducing (programmed cell death) in cancer cells
4.Betulinic acid has also been found to retard the progression of HIV 1 infection, which eventually leads to , by preventing the formation of syncytia (cellular aggregates).
