Five integrasone derivatives, integrasone C (1), isointegrasone C (2), integrasone D1 (3), integrasone D2 (4), and integrasone E (5), were isolated from the culture broth of Lepteutypa sp. KT4162. Neither conventional NMR analyses nor DFT (density functional theory)-based computationally assisted chemical shift discussions were sufficient to elucidate the relative configuration of the 1,4-epoxydiol moiety. A combined analysis using the calculated nJCH values and HMBC spectra was helpful to establish the relative configuration. The absolute configurations of 1-5 were determined using DFT-based ECD (electronic circular dichroism) spectral analysis. Biological assays of these compounds revealed that 2 potently inhibits HIV-1 integrase without cytotoxicity.
