New Metabolite from the Fungus Monascus lunisporas BCRC 33640

Careful examination of the hexane-soluble fraction of the ethanolic extract of red mold rice fermented with the yellow mutant of the fungus Monascus lunisporas BCRC 33640 (Eurotiaceae) led to the isolation of a new sesquiterpenoid derivative, namely monasuslunin (1) together with nine known compounds (210). Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive 1D and 2D NMR as well as HR-ESI-MS analyses.
