A new anthraquinone derivative, kinanthraquinone (1) was isolated from Streptomyces reveromyceticus SN-593-44. Its structure was determined by the combination of spectroscopic methods including NMR and MS. Kinanthraquinone had a characteristic carboxamide group and was a rare class of metabolite as an anthraquinone derivative isolated from microbes. It showed moderate cytotoxocity against HL-60 and src ts -NRK cell with IC 50 value of 7.9 and 10 μM, respectively.
