Four new sesquiterpenoids, namely 12-hydroxy-3-oxodrimenol (1), 11-hydroxyacetoxydrim-7-en-3β-ol (2), 2,6-dimethyl-7,10-epoxy-10-hydroxymethyldodeca-2,11-dien-6-ol (3), and 7,10-epoxy-2,6,10-trimethyldodeca-2,11-diene-4,6-diol (4), along with fourteen known compounds, were isolated from the cultures of Phellinidium sulphurascens. The structures of compounds 1–4 were established on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis. All of them were evaluated for their cytotoxic activities.

Homo- and heptanor-sterols and tremulane sesquiterpenes from cultures of Phellinus igniarius.
In preliminary in vitro assays, compounds 8, 9, 13, and 3beta-hydroxy-11,12-O-isopropyldrimene showed significant vascular-relaxing activities against phenylephrine-induced vasoconstriction with relaxing rates of 35.7%, 45.4%, 46.6%, and 32.1%, respectively, as compared with the blank control.

Discovery of a new sesquiterpenoid from Phellinus ignarius with antiviral activity against influenza virus
Seven natural products, including one new sesquiterpenoid (eudesm-1β, 6α, 11-triol, compound 1), one ergosta -4, 6, 8(14), 22-tetraen-3-one (compound 2), four polyphenols (compounds 3, 4, 5, 6), and
Sesquiterpenes from cultures of the basidiomycete Clitocybe conglobata and their 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase inhibitory activity.
A new drimane sesquiterpenoid, 3-keto-drimenol, were isolated from cultures of the basidiomycete Clitocybe conglobata and showed inhibitory activities against two isozymes of 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenases with IC(50), which catalyze the interconversion of active cortisol and inactive cortisone.
