Abstract: Eight new cembranoids, crassarines A–H (18) were isolated from the Formosan soft coral Sinularia crassa. Compounds 13 represent the rare cembranoids with a 1,12-oxa-bridged tetrahydrofuran ring, while 4 and 5 are the firstly discovered 1,11-oxa-bridged tetrahydropyranocembranoids. The absolute configuration of 6 was determined using the Mosher’s method. Compounds 6 and 8 were found to significantly inhibit the expression of both pro-inflammatory iNOS and COX-2 proteins at 10 µM, respectively, while compounds 48 were found to be non-cytotoxic toward the selected human liver cancer cells.
Keywords: Sinularia crassa; crassarines A–H; anti-inflammatory
