The solid-state cultured products of Antrodia camphorata
as health foods has been blooming for the past few decades in Taiwan. In continuing our studies on the chemical constituents of the solid-state cultured products of this fungus, 6-methoxy-4-methyl-2,3-(methylenedioxy)phenol (1
) and 4,4'-(ethane-1,2-diyl)bis(2,3,6-trimethoxyphenol)(2
) together with 2,3,6-trimethoxy-4-methylphenol (3
), citreoanthrasteroid B (5
) and dankasterones A (6
) and B (7
) were purified by a series of column chromatography. Their structures were elucidated by spectral data analysis. For bioactivity assay, compounds 4
showed significant cytotoxicity toward murine colorectal CT26 and human leukemia K562 cancer cell lines with IC50
values ranging from 6.7 to 15.3 µM and from 12.5 to 23.1 µM, respectively.
