Posted by naturalproductman on May 9, 2009

Masahiko Isaka from BIOTEC in Bangkok, Thailand has reported an anti-malarial compound (verrucarins have been known before) in the Journal of Natural Products in 1999. This neat macrocycle has low to sub nanogram per mL activity against plasmodium falciporum, the protozoan that causes malaria. These compounds were found from the fungal cultures of Myrothecium verrucaria.
