A histone deacetylase (HDAC)-based yeast assay employing a URA3 reporter gene was applied as a primary screen to evaluate a marine-derived actinomycete extract library and identify human class III HDAC (SIRT) inhibitors. On the basis of the bioassay-guided purification, a new compound designated as streptosetin A (1) was obtained from one of the active strains identified through the yeast assay. The gross structure of the new compound was elucidated from the 1D and 2D NMR data. The absolute stereostructure of 1 was determined based on X-ray crystal structure analysis and simulation of ECD spectra using time-dependent density functional theory calculations. This compound showed weak inhibitory activity against yeast Sir2p and human SIRT1 and SIRT2.
