Abstract A new sulfated, cyclic depsipeptide, called cyanopeptolin S, from Microcystis sp. was isolated from a water bloom in the Auensee/Leipzig (Germany). The depsipeptide had a relative molecular mass of 925 and contained l-arginine, l-threonine, l-isoleucine, N-methyl-l-phenylalanine, a l-glutamic acid-δ-aldehyde ring system and a sulfated d-configurated glyceric acid as a side chain. The structure was elucidated by means of two-dimensional 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, fast atom bombardment mass spectroscopy, Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy and combined gas-liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry. Cyanopeptolin S inhibited trypsin with an IC50≤ 0.2 μg ml−1.
