Antiplasmodial and cytotoxicity testing of five highly oxygenated natural products (6R,12R,14R-colletoketol, 6R,11R,12R,14R-colletoketodiol, dihydrobotrydial, pycnidione, and 3R,4S-hydroxymellein), all derived from fungi of marine origin, showed one of them, pycnidione, to have activities against three different strains of Plasmodium falciparum in the sub-micromolar (microM) range. Although the mean selectivity index of 1 for the observed antiplasmodial activity of 4 is low, pycnidione's… CONTINUE READING
