Abstract: HeLa cell-based cytological profiling (CP) was applied to an extract library of marine sediment-derived actinomycetes to discover new cytotoxic secondary metabolites. Among the hit strains, Streptomyces sp. CP26-58 was selected for further investigation to identify its cytotoxic metabolites. CP revealed that the known ionophore tetronasin (1) was responsible for the cytotoxic effect found in the extract. Furthermore, three naphthoquinone meroterpenoids, naphthablin A (2) and two new derivatives designated as naphthablins B (3) and C (4), were isolated from other cytotoxic fractions. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated based on analysis of their HRESIMS and comprehensive NMR data. The absolute configurations of the new compounds were deduced by simulating ECD spectra and calculating potential energies for the model compounds using density function theory (DFT) calculations. Compound 1 showed a significant cytotoxic effect against HeLa cells with an IC50 value of 0.23 μM, and CP successfully clustered 1 with calcium ionophores.
