Abstract

Four new eunicellin-based diterpenes, simplexins P–S (14), and the known compound simplexin A (5), have been isolated from the soft coral Klyxum simplex. The structures of the new metabolites were determined on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis, particularly 1D and 2D NMR experiments. Compounds 1 and 35 were shown to exhibit cytotoxicity against a limited panel of cancer cell lines, 3 being the most cytotoxic. View Full-Text
