Definition:A diterpenoid that is 3,4,4a,5,6,7,8,8a-octahydronaphthalene-1-carboxylic acid substituted by methyl groups at positions 5, 6 and 8a and a 2-(2-oxotetrahydrofuran-3-yl)ethyl group at position 5 (the 4aR,5S,6R,8aR stereoisomer). It is isolated from the whole plant of Ballota limbata (Syn.Otostegia limbata) and acts as a lipoxygenase inhibitor.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: (4aR,5S,6R,8aR)-5,6,8a-trimethyl-5-[2-(2-oxotetrahydrofuran-3-yl)ethyl]-3,4,4a,5,6,7,8,8a-octahydronaphthalene-1-carboxylic acid
