Two new xanthones, 1,5-dihydroxy-3-(2-oxopropyl)-6-methoxycarbonylxanthone (1) and 1-hydroxy-3-(2-oxopropyl)-8-methoxycarbonyl- xanthone (2), together with four known xanthones (3-6) were isolated from the fermentation products of a Phomopsis fungus. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including extensive 1D- and 2D-NMR techniques. Compound 1 showed high cytotoxicity against A549 and PC3 cell with IC50 values of 3.5 and 2.8 μM. Compound 2 showed high cytotoxicity against PC3 cell with IC50 value of 2.4 μM. The other compounds also showed moderate cytotoxicity for some tested cell lines with IC50 values between 5.2-8.6 μM.
