The present work is the first phytochemical investigation of Euphorbia davidii Subils. After multistep separation process, three flavonoid glycosides were obtained from the ethyl acetate soluble fraction of the methanol extract of the whole plant. The structures of the isolated compounds were determined as kaempferol 3-O-rhamnoside, myricetin 3-O-rhamnoside, and quercetin 3-O-rhamnoside. Aqueous and organic extracts of the plant were screened in vitro for antiproliferative activity against HeLa (cervix epithelial adenocarcinoma), A431 (skin epidermoid carcinoma), A2780 (ovarian carcinoma) and MCF7 (breast epithelial adenocarcinoma) cells, using the MTT assay. n-Hexane and chloroform extracts demonstrated moderately dose-dependent cell growth inhibitory activity against all four cell lines.
