Resumo

Candida species are responsible for causing invasive candidiasis with high mortality rate and their resistance to available antifungal drugs is a major clinical challenge. Biotransformation process of the labdane diterpene ent-labd-8(17)-en-15,18-dioic acid (1) carried out with Cunninghamella elegans afforded five new derivatives (compounds 2-6). Unusual regioselective hydroxylation of the methyl group at the C-20 position of labdane-type diterpene was achieved and all compounds were subjected to cytotoxicity and antifungal evaluations. Compound 1 and its derivatives were not cytotoxic to normal (MCF-10A) and tumor (MCF-7) cell lines. Compounds 2 and 3 exhibited fungistatic activity against all tested Candida strains at lower concentrations than fluconazole. Both compounds also showed the strongest fungicidal activity against C. albicans, which is the most prevalent fungal agent involved in candidemia. (AU)
