The newly discovered macrolactone, mucorolactone, along with eight known compounds, was isolated from an ethyl acetate extract of the insect-borne fungus Mucor sp. All structures were elucidated using 1D and 2D NMR and MS spectroscopic experiments. Relative and absolute configurations of the original skeleton of mucorolactone was deduced from NOESY experiments, from the C NMR chemical shift calculation based on the DP4 probability method, and from the comparison of experimental and calculated electronic circular dichroism spectra.
