Citrifurans A–D (14), metabolized by an Aspergillus sp., are unusual dimers of azaphilone and furanone derivatives. Michael addition was thought to be the pivotal procedure in their biosynthesis, and different addition sites generated two new different carbon skeletons. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic methods, single-crystal X-ray diffraction, chemical conversion, and electronic circular dichroism analyses. Compounds 13 showed moderate inhibitory activities against LPS-induced NO production in RAW 264.7 macrophages with IC50 values of 18.3, 22.6, and 25.3 μM, respectively.
