Abstract

Eight chlorinated alkylresorcinols, monochasiol A-H (1-8), were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Dictyostelium monochasioides. Compounds 1-8 were synthesized to confirm their structures and to obtain sufficient material for performing biological tests. Monochasiol A (1) selectively inhibited the concanavalin A-induced interleukin-2 production in Jurkat cells, a human T lymphocyte cell line. Monochasiols were biogenetically synthesized by the combination of biosynthetic enzymes relating to the principal polyketides, MPBD and DIF-1, produced by Dictyostelium discoideum.
