Milanjilactones A and B, two novel cytotoxic norditerpene dilactones fromPodocarpus milanjianus Rendle
Two new cytotoxic norditerpene dilactones, milanjilactones A(3) and B(4) have been isolated from the stem bark ofPodocarpus milanjianus Rendle and characterized, on the basis of spectroscopic evidence, as 1,2-dehydro derivatives of nagilactones F(1) and G(2).
