Preparative HPLC purification of a side-fraction obtained during purification of 44,55-dihydroxyyessotoxin (6) afforded fractions containing previously unidentified yessotoxin analogues. Careful analysis of these fractions by HPLC-UV, LC-MS3, and NMR spectroscopy, revealed the identities of some of these analogues as 45-hydroxy-46,47-dinoryessotoxin (1), 44-oxo-45,46,47-trinoryessotoxin (2) and 9-methyl-42,43,44,45,46,47,55-heptanor-38-en-41-oxoyessotoxin (5). Numerous other analogues were… CONTINUE READING
