Abstract

Two new isopimarane-type diterpenes, spiropolin A (1) and myrocin E (3), were isolated from Xylaria polymorpha together with the known compound, myrocin D (2), in the course of a screening of the fruiting bodies of X. polymorpha. Their structures were determined on the basis of spectroscopic analysis, chemical conversion and X-ray analysis. Spiropolin A (1) restored the growth inhibition caused by the hyperactivated Ca2+-signaling in mutant yeast.
