Two eudesmane sesquiterpenoids, verticillatol (1
) and 5α-acetoxy-4(14)-eudesmene-1β-ol (2
) and two cembrane diterpenoids, (–)-leptodiol acetate (3
) and sinulacembranolide A (4
) were isolated from the octocoral Sinularia gaweli
and compounds 2
are new isolates. The structures of new terpenoids 2
were elucidated by spectroscopic methods and by comparison the spectral data with those of known analogues. Terpenoid 4
was found to inhibit the accumulation of the pro-inflammatory inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) protein of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW264.7 marcophage cells.
