Preparative isolation of novel antimicrobial compounds from pergidae sp. by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography

Yin, Weiping; Zhao, Chunjiu; Liao, Chunyan; Trowell, Stephen Charles; Rickards, Rodney


A novel macrocarpal (macrocarpal M) together with the grandinol (a known plant metabolite of Eucalptus spp.) were isolated from a methanolic extract of sawfly larvae sp. indet. (Australian sawfly, Hymenoptera:Symphyta) using the developed reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method. To the best of our knowledge, this macrocarpal M is found to have high levels of antimicrobial activity for the first time. The structures of two compounds were identified by ESI-MS, 1H...[Show more]
