Abstract Two new members of the amphidinol family, amphidinol A 1 and its 7-sulfate derivative amphidinol B 2, were isolated from a strain of Amphidinium carterae of Lake Fusaro, near Naples Italy, and chemically identified by spectroscopic and spectrometric methods. Amphidinol A showed antifungal activity against Candida albicans MIC = 19 µg-mL. Biosynthetic experiments with stable isotope-labelled acetate allowed defining the elongation process in 1. For the first time the use of glycolate as a starter unit in the polyketide biosynthesis of amphidinol metabolites was unambiguously demonstrated. View Full-Text
