Blasticidin A, an antibiotic, showed strong inhibitory activity toward aflatoxin production by Aspergillus parasiticus. Its structure was characterized by NMR and chemical degradation experiments as 1, which is a tetramic acid derivative with a highly oxygenated long alkyl chain similar to aflastatin A (2). Absolute configurations of the eight chiral centers at C-4, 6, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 and 37 of 1 were chemically determined. Blasticidin A almost completely inhibited aflatoxin production at 0.5 microM.
