(7S)-Macaureas A and B (1 and 2), two urea derivatives were isolated from the roots of Lepidium meyenii (Maca) collected from Qujing, Yunnan Province of China. Their structures were established on the basis of extensive spectroscopic data, including 1D NMR, 2D NMR and HRESIMS techniques. The absolute configuration of (−)-1 was corrected as 7S by a concise three-step synthesis from commercially available Boc-L-proline. Macaureas A and B were tested for their cytotoxicities against five human cancer cell lines.
