Saturated indolizines that are fused six and five-membered rings with a nitrogen atom at the ring fusion. They are biosynthesized in PLANTS by cyclization of a LYSINE coupled to ACETYL COENZYME A. Many of them are naturally occurring ALKALOIDS.

- "[reaction: see text] Polyhydroxylated indolizidines have potential for treatment of HIV, hepatitis C and HSV infection, multiple sclerosis, angiogenesis, cancer, and diabetes.
- "Spiroketals and the corresponding aza-spiroketals are the structural features found in a number of bioactive natural products, and in compounds possessing photochromic properties for use in the area of photochemical erasable memory, self-development photography, actinometry, displays, filters, lenses of variable optical density, and photomechanical biomaterials etc. And (1R,8aS)-1-hydroxyindolizidine (3) has been postulated to be a biosynthetic precursor of hydroxylated indolizidines such as (+)-lentiginosine 1, (-)-2-epilentiginosine 2 and (-)-swainsonine, which are potentially useful antimetastasis drugs for the treatment of cancer.
