Abstract As a result of screening for terpenoids produced by marine-derived Streptomyces sp. MS239, two new terpenoids named 5-dimethylallylindole-3-carboxylic acid and A80915G-8″-acid were isolated and their structures were determined mainly by NMR analyses.

Keywords terpenoid, Streptomyces sp. MS239, 5-dimethylallylindole-3-carboxylic acid, A80915G-8″-acid
