Polybrominated diphenyl ethers from the Indonesian sponge Lamellodysidea herbacea.
Four new and 10 known polybrominated diphenyl ethers have been isolated from the title sponge and it is indicated that the presence of two phenolic hydroxyl groups and bromines at C-2 and/or C-5 is important for the exhibition of antibacterial activity.
Identification of the Target Protein of Agelasine D, a Marine Sponge Diterpene Alkaloid, as an Anti‐dormant Mycobacterial Substance
Evidence strongly suggests that the BCG3185c protein is the major target of agelasine D, and that the latter is the anti‐mycobacterial substance against dormant bacilli.
Aaptamine, a spongean alkaloid, activates p21 promoter in a p53-independent manner.
Marine spongean polybrominated diphenyl ethers, selective growth inhibitors against the cancer cells adapted to glucose starvation, inhibits mitochondrial complex II
Two polybrominated diphenyl ethers isolated from an Indonesian marine sponge showed the anti-proliferative activity against PANC-1 cells under glucose-starved conditions, and mechanistic analysis indicated that compound 1 might act mainly by inhibiting complex II in the mitochondrial electron transport chain.
Aaptamines, marine spongean alkaloids, as anti-dormant mycobacterial substances
A new aaptamine class alkaloid, designated 2-methoxy-3-oxoaaptamine (1), together with seven known aaptamines (2–8) were isolated from a marine sponge of Aaptos sp. as anti-mycobacterial substances
Stability and antioxidant activity of acylated jambolan (Syzygium cumini) anthocyanins synthesized by lipase-catalyzed transesterification.
The acylated antocyanins of jambolan fruit were synthesized by lipase-catalyzed transesterification reaction with cinnamic acid (intramolecular interaction). The native anthocyanins of jambolan
