Dictyophorine A and B are two sesquiterpenes, identified from the fungus Phallus indusiatus. These compounds are based on the eudesmane skeleton (a common structure found in plant-derived flavors and fragrances), and they are the first eudesmane derivatives isolated from fungi. The dictyophorines promote the synthesis of nerve growth factor in astroglial cells.[1]
