- 生命科学－已发表论文 
A new compound (1), named diaporthelactone, together with two known compounds (2 and 3) were isolated from the culture of Diaporthe sp., a marine fungus growing in the submerged rotten leaves of Kandelia candel in the mangrove nature conservation areas of Fugong, Fujian Province of China. The new compound was elucidated to be 1,3-dihydro-4-methoxy-7methyl-3-oxo-5-isobenzofuran-carboxyaldehyde (1), which showed cytotoxic activity against KB and Raji cell lines (IC50 6.25 and 5.51 mu G mL(-1), respectively). Two known compounds, 7-methoxy-4,6-dimethyl-3H-isobenzofuran-1-one (2) and mycoepoxydiene (3), were also demonstrated to exhibit cytotoxic activities for the first time. All three compounds were assessed for antimicrobial activity. (c) 2005 Federation of European Microbiological Societies. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
