As a part of our search for naturally occurring bioactive metablites of mushrooms, we investigated the chemical constituents of eight Basidiomycetes and Ascomycetes fungi (Albatrellus confluens, Russula lepida, Thelephora ganbajun, Russula cyanoxantha, Polyporus ellisii, Tuber indicum, Engleromyces gotzii, Tremella aurantilba, Laetiporus sulphureus and Tylopilus plumbeoviolaceus), and isolated a number of novel terpenoids, phenolics and nitrogen-containing compounds. The isolation, structural elucidation and biologically activity of the new compounds are discussed.
