The new isoprenylated diketopiperazine roquefortine E (6) has been isolated from an Australian soil isolate of the ascomycete Gymnoascus reessii. The known fungal metabolite roquefortine C (1) was also recovered as the major antibacterial principle, and all structures were assigned by detailed spectroscopic analysis. 
Polyenylpyrroles and polyenylfurans from an Australian Isolate of the soil ascomycete Gymnoascus reessii.
[structure: see text] An Australian isolate of the soil ascomycete Gymnoascus reessii yielded a series of cytotoxic metabolites, including the known polyenylpyrroles rumbrin (1) and auxarconjugatin AExpand

New alkaloids and diterpenes from a deep ocean sediment derived fungus Penicillium sp.
Abstract Four new alkaloids, including two new meleagrin analogs, meleagrins B (2) and C (3), and two new diketopiperazines, roquefortines F (5) and G (6), together with six new diterpenes,Expand
Antimicrobial Aromatic Polyketides from Gorgonian‐Associated Fungus, Penicillium commune 518
Seven new aromatic polyketides, communols A–G (1–7), were isolated and identified from the fermentation broth of Penicillium commune 518, a marine-derived fungus associated with the Gorgonian,Expand
Total Synthesis of Isoroquefortine E and Phenylahistin.
Isoroquefortine E and phenylahistin were synthesized using the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reaction as the key step to build the dehydroamino acid moiety. The syntheses provide materials for theExpand
