Structural Formula Vector Image
Title: Zaragozic Acids
Additional Names: Squalestatins
Literature References: Family of fungal metabolites with a core 4,6,7-trihydroxy-2,8-dioxobicyclo[3.2.1]octane-3,4,5-tricarboxylic acid ring system differing among C6-O-acyl and C1-alkyl side chains. Inhibitors of squalene synthase, which catalyzes the first committed step of the sterol biosynthetic pathway. Originally isolated as zaragozic acid from a fungus found in Jalon River in Zaragosa, Spain and as squalestatins from Phoma sp. C2932 found in a soil sample from Armacao de Pera, Portugal.
