Two new ent-3,4-seco-labdane diterpenoids, ent-3,4-seco-16-hydroxy-12,15-epoxy-4(18),8(17),12,14-labdatetraen-3-oic acid (1) and ent-3,4-seco-12R,15-epoxy-4(18),8(17),13-labdatrien-3-oic acid (2), were isolated from the leaves of Callicarpa nudiflora. Their structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analysis and the biosynthetic pathways leading to these compounds were proposed. The two compounds both exerted potent inhibitory activity against the production of nitric oxide (NO) in RAW264.7 stimulated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS).
