A hybrid compound consisting of aplyronine A and mycalolide B was synthesized, and its biological activities were evaluated. The hybrid compound was found to have somewhat more potent actin-depolymerizing activity than aplyronine A. In contrast, the hybrid compound possessed about 1000-fold less cytotoxicity than aplyronine A. These results indicated that there is no direct correlation between actin-depolymerizing activity and cytotoxicity.
