Abstract: Six new cembranolides, michaolides L–Q (16), and a known cembranolide, lobomichaolide (7) were isolated from the CH2Cl2 extract of the soft coral Lobophytum michaelae. Their structures were established by extensive spectral analysis. The anti-HCMV (human cytomegalovirus) activity of 17 and their cytotoxicity against selected cell lines were evaluated.
Keywords: Lobophytum michaelae; cembranolides; cytotoxicity
