Abstract: Four new meroterpenes, guignardones F–I (14), together with two known compounds guignardones A (5) and B (6) were isolated from the endophytic fungus A1 of the mangrove plant Scyphiphora hydrophyllacea. Their structures and relative configurations were elucidated by spectroscopic data and single-crystal X-ray crystallography. A possible biogenetic pathway of compounds 16 was also proposed. All compounds were evaluated for inhibitory activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Staphylococcus aureus.
Keywords: marine endophyte; Scyphiphora hydrophyllacea; meroterpenes; Guignardia sp.; MRSA; Staphylococcus aureus
