One new betaenone, theissenoic acid (1), together with three new acetogenins, theissenolactones A-C (2-4, resp.), were isolated from the fermented broth of Theissenia cinerea 89091602 isolated in Taiwan. The structures of 1-4 were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. Biological tests revealed that 3 and 4 exhibited moderate growth-inhibitory activities against A549 lung cancer cell line with GI 50 values of 14.9 and 47.9Î?M, respectively.
