A number of antitumoral natural products have been isolated from endophytic fungi with diverse structures. Progress in various studies on antitumoral components is summarized, including the host plants of these endophytic fungi, the isolation and characterization of terpenoids, alkaloids, flavonoids, esters and steroids, and their inhibitory effects against tumor cells. In addition, the chemical ecology relationships between the endophytic fungi and their host plants are also briefly discussed.

Key words: metabolite, endophytic fungus, antitumor
