Abstract Chemical investigation of the EtOAc extract of the endophytic fungus Bionectria ochroleuca, isolated from the inner leaf tissues of the plant Sonneratia caseolaris Sonneratiaceae from Hainan island China, yielded two new peptides, pullularins E and F 1 and 2 together with three known compounds 3–5. The structures of the new compounds were unambiguously determined on the basis of one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy as well as by high-resolution mass spectrometry. The absolute configurations of amino acids were determined by HPLC analysis of acid hydrolysates using Marfey’s method. The isolated compounds exhibited pronounced to moderate cytotoxic activity against the mouse lymphoma cells L5178Y with EC50 values ranging between 0.1 and 6.7 µg-mL. View Full-Text
