Two new hirsutane sesquiterpenes, marasmiellins A (1) and B (2), were isolated from cultures of the basidiomycete Marasmiellus sp. BCC 22389. The structures were elucidated on the basis of NMR spectroscopic and mass spectrometry data. The absolute configuration of marasmiellin B was determined by application of the modified Mosher’s method.
Beauvericin was analyzed in three forms of the Lepidoptra pathogenic fungus Isaria tenuipes (4 isolates): (a) natural specimen, (b) cultivated synnemata on rice media, and (c) mycelia from fermentation in liquid media. Beauvericin was detected in very low amounts in all tested natural specimens. Synnemata on rice contained much higher concentrations of… (More)
