Four spiroketal sestertepenoids (1 ~ 4) were isolated from the marine sponge Haliclona species. Their planar structures were completely determined from a combination of extensive 1D and 2D NMR experiments, and also the relative stereochemistry on the chiral centers were established by the ROESY experiment. Compounds 1 ~ 3 were determined as the same planar structures with different stereochemistry on the chiral centers C-11 and C-13. Of these, 1 was identified as a new stereoisomer. Four compounds showed the inhibition effect of nitric oxide (NO) production in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 cells (0.7~2.0 g/ml).
