Two novel benzoquinone metabolites, 2-chloro-5-methoxy-3-methylcyclohexa-2,5-diene-1,4-dione ( 1) and xylariaquinone A ( 2) together with two known compounds were isolated from an endophytic fungus, Xylaria sp. Their structures were assigned by analysis of spectroscopic data, and the structures of 1 and 3 were also confirmed by single-crystal X-ray data. Compounds 1 and 2 showed in vitro activity against Plasmodium falciparum, K1 strain, with IC 50 values of 1.84 and 6.68 microM and… CONTINUE READING
