    Pyrenophorol is a simple macrocyclic dilactone produced by a number of species of pathogenic fungi, including Byssochlamys, Stenphyllum, Alternaria and Drechslera, first reported in the late 1960s. Pyrenophorol exhibits antibiotic, herbicidal and anthelmintic properties, and is a weak inhibitor of propyl endopeptidases. Pyrenophorol inhibits seed germination but once the seed is germinated, pyrenophlorol enhances root development but causes abnormal chlorophyll retention in leaf sections.

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