Four new alkaloids, lycopladines B-D (1-3) and lyconadin B (4), have been isolated from the club moss Lycopodium complanatum and the structures including the stereochemistry were elucidated on the basis of spectral data and modified Mosher's method. Lyconadin B (4) elevated NGF mRNA expression in 1321N1 human astrocytoma cells.
