Description
Dehydrocurvularin is a 12-membered macrocyclic lactone incorporating a resorcinyl moiety, produced by a number of fungal species including Curvularia, Penicillium and Alternaria. Dehydrocurvularin inhibits cell division by disrupting mitotic spindle formation and acts as a developmental regulator by inhibiting self-sporulation in Alternaria alternata. More recently dehydrocurvularin has been shown to have antimalarial activity.

Dehydrocurvularin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
