Cytotoxic and Antibacterial Compounds from the Coral-Derived Fungus Aspergillus tritici SP2-8-1
AbstractThree novel compounds, 4-methyl-candidusin A (1), aspetritone A (2) and aspetritone B (3), were obtained from the culture of a coral-derived fungus Aspergillus tritici SP2-8-1, together with fifteen known compounds (4–18). Their structures, including absolute configurations, were assigned based on NMR, MS, and time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) ECD calculations. Compounds 2 and 5 exhibited better activities against methicillin-resistant strains of S. aureus (MRSA) ATCC 43300 and MRSA CGMCC 1.12409 than the positive control chloramphenicol. Compound 5 displayed stronger anti-MRSA and lower cytotoxic activities than 2, and showed stronger antibacterial activities against strains of Vibrio vulnificus, Vibrio rotiferianus, and Vibrio campbellii than the other compounds. Compounds 2 and 10 exhibited significantly stronger cytotoxic activities against human cancer cell lines HeLa, A549, and Hep G2 than the other compounds. Preliminary structure–activity relationship studies indicated that prenylation of terphenyllin or candidusin and the tetrahydrobenzene moiety in anthraquinone derivatives may influence their bioactivity.
