Two New Benzolactones from the Leaves of Yunnan Local Sun Cured Tobacco and Their Bioactivities
Two new benzolactones, 4-methoxy-6-(2-oxopropyl)isobenzofuran-1(3H)-one (1) and 4-methyl-6-(2-oxopropyl)isobenzofuran-1(3H)-one (2), were isolated from the leaves of Yunnan local sun cured tobacco. Their structures were determined by means of HR-ESI-MS and extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic studies. Compounds 1 and 2 were tested for their anti-tobacoo mosaic virus (TMV) activities and cytotoxicity activities. The results revealed that compounds 1 and 2 showed high anti-TMV activity with inhibition rates of 32.6 and 30.2%. These rates are close to that of positive control. Compounds 1 and 2 also showed weak inhibitory activities against some tested human tumor cell lines.
