Two new sesquiterpenoid aromatic esters, armillarin and armillaridin, have been isolated from the artificially cultured mycelium of ARMILLARIA MELLEA (Vahl. ex Fr.) Quel. (Tricholometaceae). On the basis of spectral (UV, IR, 1 H-NMR, 13 C-NMR and MS) analysis and chemical degradation as well as X-ray crystallography, their structures were identified as ( 1) and ( 2), respectively. 

Bioactive sesquiterpene aryl esters from the culture broth of Armillaria sp.

Seven known compounds and two new compounds isolated from the culture broth of Armillaria sp.

Three New Sesquiterpene Aryl Esters from the Mycelium of Armillaria mellea

Three new sesquiterpene aryl esters and eight known compounds were isolated from the EtOH extract of the mycelium of Armillaria mellea and some of the isolates showed cytotoxicity to a variety of cancer cell lines.

Structures and cytotoxicities of three new sesquiterpenes from cultures of Armillaria sp.

Three new sesquiterpene aryl esters, named 10-dehydroxy-melleoliede B (1), 1-O-formyl-10-dehydroxy-melleoliede B (2) and 10-oxo-melleoliede B (3) together with six known ones (4–9), were isolated

Diversity and bioactivity of Armillaria sesquiterpene aryl ester natural products

The melleolide’s structural diversity is summarized and the enzymatic basis how their backbone structures are biosynthesized and modified is presented, along with current knowledge on their antimicrobial, phytotoxic, and cytotoxic bioactivities.

A new compound from liquid fermentation broth of Armillaria mellea and the determination of its absolute configuration

A new 2,5-diketopiperazine, (R)-2-(2-(furan-2-yl)-oxoethyl)-octahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrazine-1,4-dione, and seven known compounds were isolated from the ethyl acetate extract of liquid fermentation

Biological, chemical and ecological properties of Armillaria mellea (Vahl) P. Kumm

Armillaria mellea is a commonly occurring fungi species, belonging to the Basidiomycota division. As an edible fungus, A. mellea’s fruiting bodies and rhizomorphs are rich in high amounts of

Inhibition of Degranulation of RBL-2H3 Cells by Extracts and Compounds from Armillaria ostoyae

Dichloromethane extracts of mushroom mycelium and fruiting bodies exhibited a significant degranulation inhibiting effect on RBL-2H3 cells using noncytotoxic concentrations, and A. ostoyae could be a candidate for support of allergy treatments.
