New Furan and Cyclopentenone Derivatives from the Sponge-Associated Fungus Hypocrea Koningii PF04
Two new furan derivatives, hypofurans A and B (1 and 2), and three new cyclopentenone derivatives, hypocrenones A–C (3–5), along with seven known compounds, were isolated from a marine fungus associated with the sponge Phakellia fusca, and compounds 10 and 11 were obtained for the first time as natural products.

Bioactive secondary metabolites from new endophytic fungus Curvularia. sp isolated from Rauwolfia macrophylla
A new endophytic fungus was isolated from Rauwolfia macrophylla, a medicinal plant from Cameroon and showed a highest homology to Curvularia sp.
Phytosterols isolated from endophytic fungus Colletotrichum gloeosporioides (Melanconiaceae)
This is the first report of the isolation of the phytosterols sitosterol, stigmasterol and sitostenone from the genus Colletotrichum.
Metabolites of Trichoderma species isolated from damp building materials.
This investigation contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of the biologically active natural products produced by fungi commonly found in damp buildings and may result in exposure to membrane-disrupting peptaibols.
Antifungal Phytochemical Compounds of Cynodon dactylon and their effects onGanoderma boninense
The antifungal activity and Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) were evaluated using agar diffusion bioassay and elute fraction of C. dactylon ethanol SPE extract was effectively suppressed the G. boninense growth after 14 days of incubation.

The status of research from 2000 to 2019 on the anti-leishmanial and anti-inflammatory metabolites isolated from endophytes from diverse habitats is reviewed to help accelerate the drug discovery against leishmaniases and inflammation-associated disorders.


Arugosins G and H: prenylated polyketides from the marine-derived fungus Emericellanidulans var. acristata.
The fungus Emericella nidulans var. acristata was isolated as an endophyte from a Mediterranean green alga. Cultivation of this fungus yielded two new compounds, arugosins G (1) and H (2), together
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.
Benzyl derivatives with in vitro binding affinity for human opioid and cannabinoid receptors from the fungus Eurotium repens.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the fungus Eurotium repens resulted in the isolation of two new benzyl derivatives, which showed good binding affinity for human opioid or cannabinoid receptors.
Citrantifidiene and citrantifidiol: bioactive metabolites produced by Trichoderma citrinoviride with potential antifeedant activity toward aphids.
Two novel metabolites with potential antifeedant activity were isolated from cultures of the fungus Trichoderma citrinoviride strain ITEM 4484 grown in solid-state fermentation on sterile rice

The results suggest that galactolipids from the leaves of F. microcarpa may be used as potent anti-inflammatory agents.
Antimicrobial and antiprotozoal activities of secondary metabolites from the fungus Eurotium repens
Preliminary structure and activity relationship studies indicated that antibacterial, antifungal, antimalarial, and antileishmanial activities associated with phenol derivates seem to be dependent on the number of double bonds in the side chain, which would be important for lead optimization in the future.
Enantioselective synthesis and biological activity of (3S,4R)- and (3S,4S)-3-hydroxy-4-hydroxymethyl- 4-butanolides in relation to PGE2.
Compounds 9 and 13 were synthesized and their structures and stereochemistry were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, and specific [(3)H]-PGE(2) binding was significantly displaced by compound 9 and, to a lesser extent, by 13.
