Two new briarane-type diterpenoids, briarenolides K (1
) and L (2
), were isolated from an octocoral identified as Briareum
sp. The structures of new briaranes 1
were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. In the in vitro
anti-inflammatory effects test, briaranes 1
were found to significantly inhibit the accumulation of the pro-inflammatory iNOS protein of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW264.7 macrophage cells.
