AbstractHypocrealean fungi have proved to be prolific bioactive metabolite producers; they have caught the attention of mycologists throughout the world. However, only a few studies on the insect and spider parasitic genus Akanthomyces have so far been carried out. In this study, we report the isolation, structural elucidation and biological activities of four unprecedented glycosylated α-pyrone derivatives, akanthopyrones A-D (1-4), from a culture of Akanthomyces novoguineensis collected in Thailand. The chemical structures of the akanthopyrones were determined by extensive 1D- and 2D-NMR, and HRMS spectroscopic analysis. Their absolute configurations were determined. Akanthopyrone A (1) exhibited weak antimicrobial activity against Bacillus subtilis DSM10 and cytotoxicity against the HeLa cell line KB-3-1, while akanthopyrone D (4) showed weak activity against Candida tenuis MUCL 29892.
