A novel cytotoxic 17-membered macrolide, amphidinolide Y (1), has been isolated from a marine dinoflagellate Amphidinium sp., and it was elucidated to exist as a 9:1 equilibrium mixture of 6-keto- and 6(9)-hemiacetal forms (1a and 1b, respectively) on the basis of 2D NMR data and chemical means. The feeding experiments with 13C-labeled acetates suggested that amphidinolide Y (1) may be a biogenetic precursor of 16-membered macrodiolide, amphidinolide X (2).
