The extract of terrestrial alga Nostoc commune Vauch. has high antioxidative activity. Our study on N. commune Vauch. resulted in the isolation of two β-ionone derivatives, nostocionone and 3-oxo-β-ionone, together with four indole alkaloids, scytonemin, reduced scytonemin, N-(p-coumaroyl)tryptamine, and N-acetyltryptamine. The structures of the isolated compounds were determined on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR and MS analyses. Among these isolates, nostocionone and reduced scytonemin… CONTINUE READING
