Members of this class of compounds include:

  • Bacopaside I, shows antidepressant-like effects in a mouse model[1]
  • Bacopaside II[2]
  • Bacopaside III[3][4]
  • Bacopaside IV[4]
  • Bacopaside V[4]
  • Bacopaside VI[5]
  • Bacopaside VII[5]
  • Bacopaside VIII[5]
  • Bacopaside IX[6]
  • Bacopaside X[6]
  • Bacopaside XI, shows nootropic activity in a mouse model[6]
