Five new scalarane sesterterpenoids, felixins A–E (1
), were isolated from the Formosan sponge Ircinia felix
. The structures of scalaranes 1
were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analysis. Cytotoxicity of scalaranes 1
against the proliferation of a limited panel of tumor cell lines was evaluated.
