ABSTRACT Metabolomic investigations focusing on the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus sp. SCSIO F063 have unveiled seven new chlorinated anthraquinones (1-7) related to averantin, together with five known analogues (11-15) when the fungus was fermented using sea salt-containing potato dextrose broth. Through the addition of sodium bromide to the broth, two new brominated anthraquinones (8, 9) and one new nonhalogenated anthraquinone (10) were obtained from the fungal mycelia. Their structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analyses including MS and 1D and 2D NMR data. One metabolite, 6-O-methyl-7-chloroaveratin (2), displayed inhibition activity against three human tumor cell lines, SF-268, MCF-7, and NCI-H460, with IC(50) values of 7.11, 6.64, and 7.42 μM, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Six cycloheptadepsipeptides, marformycins A-F (1-6), featuring a unique N-terminally formylated side chain and five non-proteinogenic amino acid residues, were isolated from the deep Sea-derived Streptomyces drozdowiczii SCSIO 10141. The previously unsolved absolute stereochemistry of 3 and 4 was determined and the structures of other four new congeners were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic, chiral-phase HPLC, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. Compounds 1-5 bear no cytotoxicity against a number of human tumor cell lines but show selective anti-infective activity against Micrococcus luteus.

    ABSTRACT: Three chromone analogs, 1–3, a chlorinated alkaloid sclerotioramine (4), together with two 11-noreremophilane-type sesquiterpenes with a conjugated enolic OH group and a brominated one, 5 and 6, respectively, were isolated from Penicillium citreonigrum (HQ738282). Compounds 1, 5, and 6 were new. Biological tests revealed that 4 exhibited a significant activity (IC50 7.32 μg/ml), and 6 showed a moderate activity (IC50 16.31 μg/ml) in vitro against HepG2 cell line, and 4 also displayed an activity comparable to that of acarbose against α-glucosidase.

    ABSTRACT: Nine known metabolites, 6,8,1'-tri-O-methyl averantin (1), 6,8-di-O-methyl averufnin (2), 6,8-di-O-methyl averufanin (3), aversin (4), 1,3-dihydroxy-6,8-dimethoxy-9,10-anthraquinone (5), 6,8-di-O-methylnidurufin (6), 6,8-di-O-methyl versiconol (7), 5-methyoxysterigmatocystin (8) and (S)-ornidazole (9), were isolated from the extracts of Penicillium purpurogenum, and their structures were elucidated by using spectroscopic methods. The brine shrimp toxicity, anti-phytopathogenic and phytotoxic effects of these compounds were evaluated. Among them, compounds 1 and 8 exhibited the strongest toxicity against brine shrimp (Artemia salina), with lethality rates of 100% at a low concentration of 10 μM, comparable to the positive control toosendanin. Compounds 1, 4 and 7 moderately inhibited the growth of Botrytis cinerea. Moreover, 4 displayed moderate antifungal effects on Gibberella saubinettii. In addition, compounds 6, 7 and 9 produced the phytotoxic effects on radish seedlings at 100 μM. This is the first report on the isolation of these metabolites from this organism.
