Four new isoflavonoids, eryvarins H-K, and a new 2-arylbenzofuran, eryvarin L, together with five known compounds, were isolated from the roots of Erythrina variegata. Their structures were established on the basis of spectroscopic analysis. Eryvarins H and I are rare naturally-occurring isoflav-3-enes. The antibacterial activity of these five new compounds against 13 strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was examined.
