Monocyclic aromatics, methyl-[beta]-orcinolcarboxylate, and methylorsellinate exhibited 4-5-fold higher activity than acarbose [16], whereas depsidone salazinic acid, depside sekikaic acid, and dibenzofuran usnic acid showed compatible [IC.sub.50] value as compared to the standard acarbose [36].
Tannin from Galla Chinensis is a type of hydrolyzable tannin that consists of a central glucose core, which is surrounded by several gallic acid units, and further gallic acid units can be attached through depside bonding of additional galloyl residues.
Compared to the depsidone, psoromic acid, and to olivetoric acid ([IC.sub.50] = 221.8 [micro]M and 266.3 [micro]M for PRCC cells, 157.0 [micro]M and 37.07 [micro]M for U87MG cells), which can be considered as the alkyl depside form of physodic acid, this latter alkyl depsidone ([IC.sub.50] = 1544.7 [micro]M for PRCC cells, 908.7 [micro]M for U87 cells) had six-fold less cytotoxicity on these cell lines (PRCC and U87MG cells) than these two related compounds, and also had the best antioxidant activity.

In contrast, the new chemical variety (chemotype e) found here, contains secondary substances of chemotype a (placodiolic acid) and chemotype b (with the depside atranorin), although, some xanthones as thiophaninic acid may be present in minor or trace concentrations and chloroatranorin is absent.
[30] identified free phenolic acids (syringic, p-coumaric, vanillic,p-hydroxybenzoic, caffeic, and ferulic acids) and depside (chlorogenic acid) in the roots of E.
Flavoparmelia euplecta has been reported to contain the dibenzofuran usnic acid and the depsidone protocetraric acid [47]; on the other hand, Myelochroa irrugans present as bioactive compounds the depside atranorin, the triterpenes zeorin and leucotylic acid, and the xanthone secalonic acid A [48]; and the main secondary metabolites in Parmelia omphalodes have been described to be the depsides atranorin, the depsidones salazinic and lobaric acids, and the acyclic fatty acid protolichesterinic acid [49].
For example, some depside and depsidone compounds are shown to present anti-inflammatory activity against microsomial prostaglandin E2 synthase-1 (mPGES-1) (Bauer et al.
