The structure of a new glycoside fromHolothuria edulis, holothurin A2, has been established with the aid of periodate oxidation, methylation, Smith degradation, and13C NMR spectroscopy. The structure of the glycoside has been determined as holost-9(11)-ene-3β,12α,17α-triol 3-0-{2-0-[3-0-methyl-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→3)-0-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→4)-0-β-D-quinovopyranosyl]-4-0-sulfate-β-D-xylopyranoside}.
