Cytotoxic alpha-pyrones from Xylaria hypoxylon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Two new alpha-pyrone derivatives, xylarone (1) and 8,9-dehydroxylarone (2) possessing cytotoxic activities, were isolated from the culture fluid of submerged cultures of the ascomycete Xylaria hypoxylon, strain A27-94. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods.
