Four new eunicellin-type hirsutalins S–V (1
), along with a known compound (–)-6α-hydroxy polyanthellin A (5
), were isolated from the soft coral Cladiella hirsuta
. The structures of the metabolites were determined by extensive spectroscopic analysis. Cytotoxity of compounds 1
against the proliferation of a limited panel of cancer cell lines was measured. Anti-inflammatory activity of compounds 1
was evaluated by measuring their ability in suppressing superoxide anion generation and elastase release in fMLP/ CB-induced human neutrophils.
