Abstract

Four new citrinin derivatives, including two citrinin dimers and two citrinin monomer derivatives, were isolated and identified from a marine-derived fungal strain Penicillium sp. ML226 along with six known related compounds. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic and chemical methods. The new compounds showed modest cytotoxic activity against HepG-2 cell line and weak antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus.
Keywords: citrinin; Penicillium sp. ML226; new metabolites; marine fungus citrinin; Penicillium sp. ML226; new metabolites; marine fungus
