    Description: α-Costic acid, a plant sesquiterpene with acaricidal activity against Varroa destructor. Alpha-Costic acid is a potential biocide against two fungal strains, Penicillium roqueforti and Aspergillus niger. α-costic acid had a suppressive effect on the dodder seed germination but had a stimulating action on the broomrape seed germination.

    α-Costic acid, a plant sesquiterpene with acaricidal activity against Varroa destructor parasitizing the honey bee[Pubmed: 31418584]
    The organic extract of the aerial parts of Dittrichia viscosa, a perennial native plant of the Mediterranean basin, showed a significant acaricidal activity against Varroa destructor, the parasite mite of Apis mellifera, commonly called honey bee. Among the metabolites isolated from the organic extract of this Asteraceae, α-costic acid showed to be one of the compounds responsible for the toxic activity exhibited by the crude plant extract on this parasite mite species. In addition to the toxic effect a clear acaricidal response has been recorded when the parasitic mite was exposed to 1 mg/mL concentration of α-costic acid while no effects have been showed on honey bees using the same compound at the same concentration. This finding suggests a potential use of α-costic acid to control Varroa mites. The possibility to reliably achieve absolute configuration of α-costic acid by DFT computational analysis of chiroptical spectra has been also demonstrated.†.

    Inuloxins A-D, phytotoxic bi-and tri-cyclic sesquiterpene lactones produced by Inula viscosa: potential for broomrapes and field dodder management[Pubmed: 23137725]
    Four phytotoxic bi- and tri-cyclic sesquiterpene lactones, named inuloxins A-D, were isolated together with the known α-costic acid, from the aerial parts of Inula viscosa (family Asteraceae), a widespread Mediterranean plant well known for its content of pharmacologically active metabolites. The structures of inuloxins A-D were established by spectroscopic and chemical methods and determined to be: (4E,7R*,8R*,10S*)-3-oxo-germacra-4,11(13)-dien-8β-12-olide (A), its 11,13-dihydro analogue (B), (5R*,7R*,8R*,10R*)-1,15-methylene-5β-hydroxy-eudesm-1(15),11(13)-dien-8β-12-olide (C), and (7R*,8R*)-1,4-dimethyl-4-hydroxy-secoeudesm-5(10),11(13)-dien-8β-12-olide (D). The S absolute stereochemistry at C-5 of 5-hydroxyhexan-2-yl side chain of inuloxin D was assigned by applying an advanced Mosher's method. The phytotoxic activity of inuloxins A-D, that of the diazo and monoacetyl derivatives (of inuloxin A and C, resply), as well as that of α-costic acid was evaluated against two parasitic plant species, i.e. crenate broomrape (Orobanche crenata) and field dodder (Cuscuta campestris). Inuloxins A, C and D were the most active on both parasites and caused up to 100% inhibition of the seed germination. Inuloxin B was less active on Cuscuta and completely inactive against Orobanche. The main metabolite α-costic acid had a suppressive effect on the dodder seed germination but had a stimulating action on the broomrape seed germination. These preliminary results allowed to suppose some structure-activity relationships.

    Antimould microbial and plant metabolites with potential use in intelligent food packaging[Pubmed: 29027475]
    Moulds food infestation is a heavy dangerous problem for human health and also could generate heavy economic losses. The intelligent packaging using eco-friendly biodegradable biofilm incorporating bioactive natural safe compounds represents a new frontier. This manuscript reports the inhibitory activity of 12 bacterial, fungal and plant metabolites against Penicillium roqueforti and Aspergillus niger. Among them α-costic acid and ungeremine (3 and 12) are the most promising as potential biofungicide against both fungal strains. They inhibited fungal growth by more than 60% respect to the control at 72 h and this activity persisted also at 96 h. Ungeremine showed MIC90 lower than 0.003 mg/mL after 48 h of incubation and of 0.025 mg/mL at 72 h against P. roqueforti. The MIC90 value for A. niger was 0.2 mg/mL at 48 h for both compounds. The α-costic acid showed generally MIC values at 48 and 72 h higher than ungeremine.

    In Vitro and In Vivo Toxicity Evaluation of Natural Products with Potential Applications as Biopesticides[Pubmed: 34822589]
    The use of natural products in agriculture as pesticides has been strongly advocated. However, it is necessary to assess their toxicity to ensure their safe use. In the present study, mammalian cell lines and fish models of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) and medaka (Oryzias latipes) have been used to investigate the toxic effects of ten natural products which have potential applications as biopesticides. The fungal metabolites cavoxin, epi-epoformin, papyracillic acid, seiridin and sphaeropsidone, together with the plant compounds inuloxins A and C and ungeremine, showed no toxic effects in mammalian cells and zebrafish embryos. Conversely, cyclopaldic and α-costic acids, produced by Seiridium cupressi and Dittrichia viscosa, respectively, caused significant mortality in zebrafish and medaka embryos as a result of yolk coagulation. However, both compounds showed little effect in zebrafish or mammalian cell lines in culture, thus highlighting the importance of the fish embryotoxicity test in the assessment of environmental impact. Given the embryotoxicity of α-costic acid and cyclopaldic acid, their use as biopesticides is not recommended. Further ecotoxicological studies are needed to evaluate the potential applications of the other compounds.
