A series of 23-oxosteroid derivatives have been synthesized and tested for their inhibiting Na+, K(+)-dependent ATPase from rat brain in the 1 x 10(-6)-1 x 10(-4) M concentrations. Natural 23-oxogenins from sea star Asterias amurensis and synthetic monoesters showed the inhibiting activity upto 50-55%. These compounds caused heart contraction in frogs at the level of the known cardiotonic strophanthin G, and inotropic activity on isolated heart of mollusk Spisula sachalinensis.
