Abstract

Four new nardosinane-type sesquiterpenoids, parathyrsoidins A–D (14) were isolated from the soft coral Paralemnalia thyrsoides. The structures of parathyrsoidins A–D (14) were determined by extensive spectral analysis and their cytotoxicity against selected cancer cell lines as well as antiviral activity against human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) were evaluated in vitro.
Keywords: soft coral; Paralemnalia thyrsoides; parathyrsoidins A–D; cytotoxicity soft coral; Paralemnalia thyrsoides; parathyrsoidins A–D; cytotoxicity
