Oleanolic acid, phytosterol, phytosterol-glucoside, flavone glycoside, chrysoeriol-49-O-glucoside were isolated from Korthalsella japonica growing in Japan (Fukunaga et al., 1989) and tritertpenoids (oleanolic acid, olea-12-en-3^-ol acetate and ursolic acid derivatives) from the plant growing in Korea (Ahn, 1996).

The fraction contains three kinds of alkaloids, the suggested main components for the anticancer activities of Korean mistletoe (Kim et al., 1996).
