Abstract

A new α-pyrone merosesquiterpenoid possessing an angular tetracyclic carbon skeleton, ochraceopone F (1), and four known secondary metabolites, aspertetranone D (2), cycloechinulin (3), wasabidienone E (4), and mactanamide (5), were isolated from the marine fungus Aspergillus flocculosus derived from a sponge Stylissa sp. collected in Vietnam. The structures of Compounds 15 were elucidated by analysis of 1D and 2D NMR spectra and MS data. All the isolated compounds were evaluated for anti-proliferation activity and their suppression effects on receptor activator of nuclear factor κB ligand (RANKL)-induced osteoclast differentiation using tartate-resisant acid phosphatase (TRAP). Compounds 15 had no anti-proliferative effect on human cancer cell lines up to 30 μg/mL. Among these compounds, aspertetranone D (2) and wasabidienone E (4) exhibited weak osteoclast differentiation inhibitory activity at 10 μg/mL. However, mactanamide (5) showed a potent suppression effect of osteoclast differentiation without any evidence of cytotoxicity. View Full-Text
