The titled metabolite of Chaetomium coarctatum was proved to derive from seven acetate units. The labeling pattern obtained by the use of 13C-labeled precursors implies the involvement of epoxide rearrangement to give a tetrahydrofuran ring. Incorporation of C2H3CO2Na was also investigated by 2H-nmr spectrometry.
