Four new antitumor pyranones, PM050511 (1), PM050463 (2), PM060054 (3), and PM060431 (4), were isolated from the cell extract of the marine-derived Streptomyces albus POR-04-15-053. Their structures were elucidated by a combination of spectroscopic methods, mainly 1D and 2D NMR and HRESIMS. They consist of an α-methoxy-γ-pyrone ring containing a highly substituted tetraene side chain glycosylated at C-10 in the case of 1 and 4. Compounds 1 and 4 displayed strong cytotoxicity against three human tumor cell lines with GI 50 values in the submicromolar range, whereas 2 showed subnanomolar activity as an inhibitor of EGFR-MAPK-AP1-mediated mitogenic signaling, causing inhibition of EGF-mediated AP1 trans-activation and EGF-mediated ERK activation and slight inhibition of EGF-mediated JNK activation. Taken together, these results suggest that members of the pyranone family of compounds could be developed as potential antitumor agents. © 2011 The American Chemical Society and American Society of Pharmacognosy.

Their structures were elucidated by a combination of spectroscopic methods, mainly 1D and 2D NMR and HRESIMS. They consist of an -methoxy--pyrone ring containing a highly substituted tetraene side chain glycosylated at C-10 in the case of 1 and 4. Compounds 1 and 4 displayed strong cytotoxicity against three human tumor cell lines with GI values in the submicromolar range, whereas 2 showed subnanomolar activity as an inhibitor of EGFR-MAPK-AP1-mediated mitogenic signaling, causing inhibition of EGF-mediated AP1 trans-activation and EGF-mediated ERK activation and slight inhibition of EGF-mediated JNK activation.
