The fungi of the genus, Macrolepiota, are grouped under the family Agaricaceae (division Basidiomycota) and comprise B20 species. Various biological activities of the genus, Macrolepiota, have been reported, including anti-microbial, antioxidant and enzyme (trypsin, monophenolase) activities.1–5 However, few species have been studied with regard to their secondary metabolites. Only several free amino acids, fatty acids and sterols have been reported from Macrolepiota excoriata, Macrolepiota…

This is the first report from fungi of consecutive Hyp or Pro residues in a nonribosomal linear peptides, each containing two residues of alpha-aminoisobutyric acid (Aib).
Cytotoxic constituents isolated from the fruit bodies ofHypsizigus marmoreus
The bioactivity-guided fractionation of chloroform extracts of the fruit bodies of Hypsizigus marmoreus led to the isolation of seven compounds, which exhibited moderate cytotoxicity towards cultured human colon carcinoma, human breast carcinoma and human hepatoblastoma cell lines.
Cytotoxic constituents of Amanita subjunquillea
The column chromatographic separation of the MeOH extract of A. subjunquillea led to the isolation of four ergosterols, two cerebrosides and four cyclopeptides, which were evaluated for the cytotoxicity against A549, SK-OV-3,SK-MEL-2 and HCT15 cells.
