Abstract

Fermentation of 4′-hydroxyflavanone (1) with fungal cultures, Beauveria bassiana (ATCC 13144 and ATCC 7159) yielded 6,3′,4′-trihydroxyflavanone (2), 3′,4′-dihydroxyflavanone 6-O-β-D-4-methoxyglucopyranoside (3), 4′-hydroxyflavanone 3′-sulfate (4), 6,4′-dihydroxyflavanone 3′-sulfate (5) and 4′-hydroxyflavanone 6-O-β-D-4-methoxyglucopyranoside (7). B. bassiana (ATCC 13144) and B. bassiana (ATCC 7159) in addition, gave one more metabolite each, namely, flavanone 4′-O-β-D-4-methoxyglucopyranoside (6) and 6,4′-dihydroxyflavanone (8) respectively. Cunninghamella echinulata (ATCC 9244) transformed 1 to 6,4′-dihydroxyflavanone (8), flavanone-4′-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (9), 3′-hydroxyflavanone 4′-sulfate (10), 3′,4′-dihydroxyflavanone (11) and 4′-hydroxyflavanone-3′-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (12). Mucor ramannianus (ATCC 9628) metabolized 1 to 2,4-trans-4′-hydroxyflavan-4-ol (13), 2,4-cis-4′-hydroxyflavan-4-ol (14), 2,4-trans-3′,4′-dihydroxyflavan-4-ol (15), 2,4-cis-3′,4′-dihydroxyflavan-4-ol (16), 2,4-trans-3′-hydroxy-4′-methoxyflavan-4-ol (17), flavanone 4′-O-α-D-6-deoxyallopyranoside (18) and 2,4-cis-4-hydroxyflavanone 4′-O-α-D-6-deoxyallopyranoside (19). Metabolites 13 and 14 were also produced by Ramichloridium anceps (ATCC 15672). The former was also produced by C. echinulata. Structures of the metabolic products were elucidated by means of spectroscopic data. None of the metabolites tested showed antibacterial, antifungal and antiprotozoal activities against selected organisms.
