Two new porphinoids, tolyporphins J (1) and K (2), have been isolated from the terrestrial cyanobacterium, Tolypothrix nodosa (HT-58-2) and identified by NMR and mass spectral analysis. The activities of tolyporphins J and K in cell sensitization and drug accumulation assays for multidrug resistance (MDR) reversal were compared with those of tolyporphin A. Unusual NMR spectroscopic shifts were observed for tolyporphin J (1) in CDCl3.
