Gerronemins A-F, cytotoxic biscatechols from a Gerronema species
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The gerronemins A-F (1-6) were isolated as the cytotoxic components of an extract of a Gerronema species detected in a screening for new cytotoxic metabolites from basidiomycetes. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic techniques, and they are composed of a C-12-C-16 alkane or alkene substituted at both ends by 2,3-dihydroxyphenyl groups. The gerronemins blocked the inducible expression of a hCOX-2 and iNOS promoter driven reporter gene with IC50-values of 1-5 mug/ml. In addition, cytotoxic activities were observed which were due the inhibition of cellular macromolecular syntheses.
