Abstract

Furosonin (2), a novel hydrolyzable tannin, was isolated from Geranium thunbergii (Geraniaceae) leaves, and the structure was determined based on spectroscopic data. The effects of geraniin (1), furosonin (2), and related hydrolyzable tannins on antibiotic resistance were examined, and repandusinic acid A (4) was found to suppress oxacillin resistance of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
