A new 24-membered macrolide macrolactin T (1), and a new polyene delta-lactone macrolactin U (2), along with macrolactins A, B, D, O, and S, were isolated from the cultured broth of the bacterium Bacillus marinus, which was isolated from Suaeda salsa collected in the coastline of Bohai Sea of China. The structures of 1 and 2 were elucidated on the basis of(More)
Three new prenylated xanthones, garcinexanthones G−I (1–3), together with fifteen known ones (4–18) were identified from the leaves of Garcinia lancilimba. Their structures were determined by extensive spectroscopic analyses. Most of the compounds exhibited inhibitory effects against HL-60 (human leukemia), A549 (human lung cancer), and MCF-7 (human breast(More)
Fermentation of the marine-derived fungus Trichoderma asperellum, collected from the sediment of the Antarctic Penguin Island, resulted in the isolation of six new peptaibols named asperelines A-F (1-6), which are characterized by an acetylated N-terminus and a C-terminus containing an uncommon prolinol residue. Structures were determined by extensive 1D(More)
A new 2(1H)-pyrazinone ring-containing natural product, paenibacillin A (1), together with five known diketopiperazine derivatives 2-6 and two known isoflavones 7-8, was isolated from the culture of an endophytic bacterium Paenibacillus sp. Xy-2. The structure of compound 1 was elucidated by extensive spectral methods, including UV, IR, HR-ESI-MS, 1D and 2D(More)
Two new 2,5-piperazinedione derivatives, janthinolide A and B (1-2), along with deoxymycelianamide, griseofulvin and dechlorogriseofulvin were isolated from the fermentation broths of the endophytic fungus Penicillium janthinellum isolated from a soft coral, Dendronephthya sp. Their structures were established by extensive spectroscopic data analysis.
Fungi are remarkable organisms that have a capacity to produce diverse classes of secondary metabolites with a wide variety of biological activities such as antimicrobial activities, acetylcholinesterase inhibitor activities, antitumor activities, anti-inflammatory activities and so on. A recent estimation of the global fungal diversity indicated that(More)
Increasing evidence indicates the occurrence of cognitive impairment in astronauts under spaceflight compound conditions, but the underlying mechanisms and countermeasures need to be explored. In this study, we found that learning and memory abilities were significantly reduced in rats under a simulated long-duration spaceflight environment (SLSE), which(More)
