Two new 14-membered resorcylic acid lactone derivatives, ascarpins A (1) and B (2), together with three related known compounds (3-5) were isolated from the fungus Aspergillus sp. ZJ-65, obtaining from the intestine of grass carp. These structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic methods, chemical conversion, and comparison with literature. All isolates were tested for their inhibitory activity against LPS-induced NO production in RAW 264.7 macrophages. Among them, compounds 1-4 exhibited potential anti-inflammatory activity with IC50 values ranging from 7.6 to 48.3 μM.
