Six new highly oxygenated polycyclic cyathane-xylosides, named striatoids A–F (1–6), were isolated from the cultures of the basidiomycete Cyathus striatus. Their structures were established by comprehensive spectroscopic analysis including 2D NMR (HMBC, HSQC, ROESY, 1H–1H–COSY) and HRESIMS experiments. Compounds 2 and 3 possess an unusual 15,4′-ether ring system. The isolated compounds dose-dependently enhanced nerve growth factor (NGF)-mediated neurite outgrowth in rat pheochromocytoma (PC-12) cells.
