Seven novel diterpenoids, named heptemerones A∼G, were isolated from the broth of submerged cultures of Coprinus heptemerus, a basidiomycete which previously had not been known to produce secondary metabolites. The compounds were purified by solid phase extraction and silica gel chromatography followed by preparative HPLC. Among the biological activities(More)
An investigation of Thapsia garganica afforded a series of tetracyclic C-19 dilactones, whose production was dependent on the time and location of the collection. These unusual tetrahomosesquiterpenoids are presumably biosynthesized via a carbon dioxide-triggered electrophilic polyolefin cyclization. Despite the structural differences with thapsigargin,(More)
Various parts of Piper obliquum Ruíz & Pavon yielded the new alkenylphenols obliquol A (1) and obliquol B (2), the new 4-chromanone 3 together with the known compounds 4 and 5. A synthesis of obliquol B (2) was developed in order to confirm its structure and to provide sufficient amounts for biological testing. Compounds 1 and 2 have antibacterial activity(More)
An investigation of the polar glycosidic fraction from the leaves of myrtle afforded four galloylated nonprenylated phloroglucinol glucosides (3a-d) related to the endoperoxide hormone G3 (4) in terms of structure and biogenesis. Despite their close similarity, significant antibacterial activity was shown only by one of these compounds (3b,(More)
