A new aromatic nucleoside kipukasin J (1) and two known compounds decumbenone B (2) and cyclopenol (3) were separated from marine isolate of the fungus Aspergillus flavus. The structure of kipukasin J was elucidated using NMR spectroscopy and high-resolution mass spectrometry. The antimicrobial activity of the separated compounds was investigated.

Two new nucleoside derivatives isolated from the marine-derived Aspergillus versicolor and their intramolecular transesterification.
Two new nucleoside derivatives were obtained from the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus versicolor, which was isolated from the mud collected in the South China Sea, and Interestingly, intramolecular transesterification occurs in compounds 1a and 1b, which exist as a pair of inseparable regioisomers.
Recent Discovery of Heterocyclic Alkaloids from Marine-Derived Aspergillus Species
This review attempts to provide a comprehensive summary of the structural diversity and biological activities of heterocyclic alkaloids that are produced by marine-derived Aspergillus species.
First total synthesis of kipukasin A
An improved iodine-promoted acetonide-forming reaction was developed to access 1,2-O-isopropylidene-α-D-ribofuranose and for the first time, ortho-alkynylbenzoate was used as protecting group for the 5-hydoxy group.
Safety of the fungal workhorses of industrial biotechnology: update on the mycotoxin and secondary metabolite potential of Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus oryzae, and Trichoderma reesei
This review presents an update on the current knowledge of the secondary metabolite potential of the major fungal species used in industrial biotechnology, i.e., Aspergillus niger, As pergillus oryzae, and Trichoderma reesei, and a description of all known secondary metabolites produced by these species.
Fungal metabolites as anti-diabetic agents: emphasis on PTP1B inhibitors
The focus is on describing the PTP1B effects and their potential as anti-diabetic agents for the various metabolites isolated from fungi.


Nucleoside derivatives from the marine-derived fungus Aspergillusversicolor
Four nucleoside derivatives (1–4) were isolated from the fungus Aspergillus versicolor derived from the gorgonian Dichotella gemmacea collected in the South China Sea. Their structures were
Kipukasins, nucleoside derivatives from Aspergillus versicolor.
Seven new aroyl uridine derivatives (kipukasins A-G; 1-7) were isolated from solid-substrate fermentation cultures of two different Hawaiian isolates of Aspergillus versicolor, showing modest activity in assays against Gram-positive bacteria.
Antimicrobial aflatoxins from the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus flavus 092008
Results showed that hydration and hydrogenation of 8-double bond significantly reduces the cytotoxicity of aflatoxins, while the esterification at C-8 increases the cytOToxicity.
Flavusides A and B, antibacterial cerebrosides from the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus flavus.
Flavusides A and B and two new antibacterial cerebroside derivatives have been isolated from the extract of a marine isolate of the fungus Aspergillus flavus and the structure and absolute stereochemistry of two cerebrosides were assigned on the basis of NMR and Tandem FAB-MS/MS experiments.
PTP1B inhibitory secondary metabolites from marine-derived fungal strains Penicillium spp. and Eurotium sp.
The kinetic analysis of PTP1B inhibition by compounds 1 and 5 suggested that compound 1 inhibited P TP1B activity in a noncompetitive manner, whereas compound 5 inhibited PTP2BActivity in a competitive manner.
New Angucyclines and Antimicrobial Diketopiperazines from the Marine Mollusk-Derived Actinomycete Saccharothrix espanaensis An 113
Two new angucyclines, saccharothrixmicines A and B, together with three known diketopiperazines 4-6 were isolated from the actinomycete SaccharOTHrix espanaensis An 113 associated with the marine mollusk Anadara broughtoni and exhibited activity towards Candida albicans and Xanthomonas sp.
Indole Diterpenoids and Isocoumarin from the Fungus, Aspergillus flavus, Isolated from the Prawn, Penaeus vannamei
Two new indole-diterpenoids (1 and 2) and a new isocoumarin (3) were isolated from the fermentation broth of the marine-derived fungus, Aspergillus flavus OUCMDZ-2205 and the absolute configurations of the known compounds, 4–6 and leporin A (6a), were also determined for the first time.
Steroids and an oxylipin from an algicolous isolate of Aspergillus flavus
Two new oxylipins isolated from the cultures of Aspergillus flavus exhibited low activity to inhibit acetylcholinesterase and no activity against plant pathogenic fungi Colletotrichum lagenarium and Fusarium oxysporum.
Discovery of novel secondary metabolites from fungi—is it really a random walk through a random forest?
Twenty-nine Nodulisporium strains isolated from material obtained worldwide were found to produce secondary metabolites as measured by HPLC, and within the set of cultures that produced the mean or greater than the mean number of metabolites, were found all of the producers of rarer metabolites.
