Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Three rearranged triketone–terpene adducts, myrcaulones A–C (1–3), were isolated from the leaves of Myrciaria cauliflora. Myrcaulones A (1) and B (2) feature a new carbon skeleton with an unprecedented spiro[bicyclo[3.1.1]heptane-2,2′-cyclopenta[b]pyran] core. Myrcaulone C (3) possesses an unusual cyclobuta[6,7]cyclonona[1,2-b]cyclopenta[e]pyran backbone. Their structures with absolute configurations were elucidated by NMR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and electronic circular dichroism calculations. A plausible biogenetic pathway for myrcaulones A–C involving the rearrangement of a triketone unit is also proposed. In addition, myrcaulones A (1) and B (2) exhibited inhibitory effects against tumor necrosis factor-α and nitric oxide generation induced by lipopolysaccharide in RAW 264.7 macrophages.
