A New Cyclic Hexapeptide and a New Isocoumarin Derivative from the Marine Sponge-Associated Fungus Aspergillus similanensis KUFA 0013
Only compound 2 exhibited weak activity against the three cancer cell lines, and neither of them showed antibacterial activity.
New Isocoumarin Derivatives and Meroterpenoids from the Marine Sponge-Associated Fungus Aspergillus similanensis sp. nov. KUFA 0013
Chevalone E (3) was found to show synergism with the antibiotic oxacillin against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and was evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, Candida albicans ATCC 10231, and multidrug-resistant isolates from the environment.
Antifungal Activity Evaluation of the Constituents of Haliclona baeri and Haliclona cymaeformis, Collected from the Gulf of Thailand
Only nortetillapyrone showed antifungal activity, with a preponderance on the dermatophytic filamentous fungi.
Cytotoxic activity of lupane-type triterpenes from Glochidion sphaerogynum and Glochidion eriocarpum two of which induce apoptosis.
Triterpenes 2 - 7 were tested against the growth of three human tumor cell lines, MCF-7, NCI-H-460 and SF-268 and indicated that triterpenes 5 and 6 exerted their antiproliferative activity through the involvement of apoptosis while triterpene 3 did not.
Naturally-occurring xanthones: recent developments.
A literature survey covering the report of naturally occurring xanthones from January 2000 to December 2004, with 219 references, is presented in this review. Among 515 xanthones reported in this
Drugs and Cosmetics from the Sea
While the marine world offers an extremely rich resource for novel compounds, it also represents a great challenge that requires inputs from various scientific areas to bring the marine chemical diversity up to its therapeutic potential.
Antibacterial and Antibiofilm Activities of Tryptoquivalines and Meroditerpenes Isolated from the Marine-Derived Fungi Neosartorya paulistensis, N. laciniosa, N. tsunodae, and the Soil Fungi N.
A new meroditerpene, sartorypyrone C (5), was isolated, together with the known tryptoquivalines, from the culture of the marine sponge-associated fungus Neosartorya paulistensis, and exhibited significant antibacterial activity as well as synergism with antibiotics against the Gram-positive multidrug-resistant strains.
The Marine Macroalgae of the Genus Ulva: Chemistry, Biological Activitiesand Potential Applications
This review summarizes a literature survey of the marine macroalgae of the genus Ulva (Phylum Chlorophyta), covering the period of 1985 to 2012, and the emphasis on their application in food industry and their potential uses as biofilters is addressed.
