Abstract

Pierisketolide A (1) and pierisketones B and C (2 and 3), three diterpenes with an unusual A-homo-B-nor-ent-kaurane carbon skeleton, were isolated from the roots of Pieris formosa. Their structures were characterized by a series of spectroscopic methods, X-ray diffraction, and electronic circular dichroism (ECD). Pierisketolide A (1) exhibited an analgesic effect with a 45% writhe inhibition rate at a dose of 10.0 mg/kg. The plausible biosynthetic pathways of 1-3 are proposed.
