Horisfieldones A (1) and B (2), two dimeric diarylpropanes featuring an unprecedentedly aromatic ring-contracted framework, were isolated from Horsfieldia kingii. Their structures and absolute configurations were determined by the inspection of extensive spectroscopic data and electronic circular dichroism calculations. Molecular modeling analysis, in vitro enzyme-based bioassays, and structure–activity relationship analysis of these isolates revealed that (+)-1 (IC50 = 35.1 ± 3.9 μM, SI > 11.4) could present a new class of human DOPA decarboxylase inhibitor.
