A cytotoxic alkylresorcinol was isolated from Lysimachia japonica THUNB. (Primulaceae) and identified as grevillol (2). It was tested for cytotoxicity against KB, B-16, PC-13, L-5178Y, P-388, and HEp-2 cells in vitro. Synthetic related compounds were also tested for cytotoxicity against the KB cell line, and the structure-activity relationships are discussed.
