Bioactivity-guided fractionation of the methanolic extract from the seeds of Euphorbia lathyris led to the isolation of 18 lathyrane-type diterpenoids including a new one, Euphorbia factor L29 (1). Their chemical structures were elucidated by extensive NMR spectroscopic data including 2D-NMR and HR-ESI-MS as well as CD data. All isolates (1 – 18) were found to inhibit the nitric oxide production in LPS-induced RAW 264.7 macrophages, with their IC50 values in the range of 11.2 – 52.2 μm.
