Asterriquinol D dimethylether
Asterriquinol D dimethylether was first isolated from Aspergillus terreus as part of the asterriquinone complex, reported by Yamamoto and colleagues at Kanazawa University in 1981. Asterriquinol D dimethylether was recently reported as a useful chemotaxonomic marker for a novel Aspergillus species, A. kumbius. Asterriquinol D dimethylether has weak activity against tumor cells and the parasitic protozoan, Tritrichomonas foetus.
