Gertsch, Juerg ; Tobler, Rebekka Thoeni ; Brun, Reto ; Sticher, Otto ; Heilmann, Jörg


Using activity against Candida albicans as a lead, the bioactivity-guided fractionation of the CH2Cl2 ext. of P. piscatorum led to the isolation of the arylnaphthalide lignan justicidin B (I), which was found to be present in high amts., and a new C-11 hydroxylated deriv. that we named piscatorin (II). We provide evidence that I is the main active principle of P. piscatorum, showing the same ...
