(Matrix presented) A novel diterpene, (-)-axinyssene, was isolated from the Japanese marine sponge Axinyssa sp. The structure of (-)-axinyssene was determined on the basis of spectroscopic and synthetic evidence to be 1-methyl-4-[(4E)-5′9′-dimethyl-1′-methylene-4′, 8′-decadienyl]-(4S)-cyclohexene. (-)- and (+)-axinyssene showed mild cytotoxicity against acute promyelocytic leukemia, HL-60 cells.
