Two new isoflavonoids, eryvarins S (1) and T (2), and a new 2-arylbenzofuran, eryvarin U (3), together with nine known compounds, were isolated from the roots of Erythrina variegata. Their structures were established on the basis of spectroscopic analysis. Eryvarin U is a rare naturally-occurring 2-arylbenzofuran. The antibacterial activity of these three new compounds against 13 strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was examined in which eryvarin U showed the highest antibacterial activity.
