Four new natural diketopiperazine derivatives cyclotryprostatins A, B, C and D, were isolated as new inhibitors of the mammalian cell cycle from the secondary metabolites of Aspergillus fumigatus BM939 through a separation procedure guided by cell cycle inhibitory acitivity. The structures of A-D were determined by spectroscopic methods especially by detailed analyses of their 1H and 13C NMR spectra with the aid of 2D NMR techniques. A-D inhibited the cell cycle progression of tsFT210 cells at the G2/M phase with IC50 values of 5.6µM (A), 19.5µM (B). 23.4µM (C) and 25.3µM (D), respectively.
