An azaphilone that is 7,8-dihydro-6H-oxireno[j]isochromene substituted by a hepta-1,3,5-trien-1-yl group at position 3, a [3-hydroxybutanoyl]oxy group at position 7, a methyl group at position 7 and oxo groups at positions 6 and 8 respectively (the 3S,7S stereoisomer). A fungal metabolite, it is isolated from the fermentation broth of Penicillium solitum strain CT2108 and exhibits inhibitory activity against fatty acid synthase as well as fungicidal activity.
This entity has been manually annotated by the ChEBI Team.
An EC 2.3.1.* (acyltransferase transferring other than amino-acyl group) inhibitor that interferes with the action of fatty acid synthase (EC 188.8.131.52), a multi-enzyme protein involved in fatty acid synthesis.
