14-α-hydroxypaspalinine is an indolic secondary metabolite first isolated from Aspergillus nomius by researchers at Iowa University and the USDA in 1993. 14-α-hydroxypaspalinine is a member of the paspalinine family of tremorigenic toxins often associated with animal toxicity on pasture. 14-α-hydroxypaspalinine exhibits weak antiinsectan activity, however other aspects of the metabolite’s bioprofile have not been extensively investigated.
