A new dihydrobenzofuran–phenyl acrylate hybrid, aspeterreurone A (1), was obtained from the culture of the deep-sea-derived fungus Aspergillus terreus CC-S06-18. The relative configuration of 1 was elucidated by HSQMBC NMR, calculated NMR chemical shifts coupled with a statistical procedure (DP4+), and the absolute configuration was established by ECD calculations. 1 exhibited cytotoxicities against the gastric cancer cell lines HGC27, MGC803, BGC823, and AGS, with minimal effects on normal gastric epithelial cell line GES-1. Further studies showed that 1 inhibited cell cycle progression and induced apoptosis of gastric cancer MGC803 cells in a concentration-dependent manner. Western blot analysis indicated that 1 inhibited the phosphorylation of STAT3, which might contribute to its cytotoxic activity.
