Illudin S is potent antitumor sesquiterpene, first isolated from the fungus, Clitocybe illudens, in 1963. Illudin S is metabolically activated to reactive intermediates that bind DNA. The DNA damage appears to differ from that of other reactive metabolites. Importantly, illudin S exhibits in vitro and in vivo potency against multi-drug resistant tumors.
