Bendigoles A similar to C are the first secondary metabolites to be isolated from a member of the actinomycete genus Gordonia. They were detected in a culture filtrate extract of Gordonia australis Acta 2299 by HPLC-diode array analysis and characterized as new steroids by mass spectrometry and NMR experiments. Bendigole C show binding affinity to the human progesterone and A-C to androgen receptor but are inactive at mineralocorticoid and estrogen receptors. In in vitro transactivation studies bendigoles A and C showed moderate and weak androgenic activities.
