- Chemical examination of the fermentation broth of the marine-derived bacterium Bacillus sp. resulted in the isolation of seven new amicoumacin-type isocoumarin derivatives, namely bacillcoumacins A–G (1–7), together with four known analogues. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis, while the absolute configurations of the new compounds were determined by CD, Mosher’s method, and chemical conversion. Compounds 7 and 9 showed inhibitory effects against the NO production induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in mouse macrophage RAW 264.7 cells.
