Gombaspiroketals A-C (1-3), tetracyclic sesterterpenes of a novel skeletal class, were isolated from the Korean marine sponge Clathria gombawuiensis. On the basis of the combined spectroscopic analyses, the structures of these compounds were determined to be highly rearranged sesterterpene spiroketal methoxyacetals (1 and 2) and a corresponding hemiacetal(More)
The suvanines, a new suvanine salt, five new (2, 4-8) and two known sesterterpenes from the same structural class, and two new modified lipids (9 and 10) were isolated from a Coscinoderma sp. sponge collected from Chuuk Island, Micronesia. On the basis of the results of combined spectroscopic and chemical analyses, a new suvanine salt was determined to be(More)
A new peptide, gombamide A (1), was isolated from the marine sponge Clathria gombawuiensis, collected from Korean waters. On the basis of the results of combined spectroscopic analyses, the structure of this compound was determined to be a cyclic C-terminally modified thiohexapeptide containing the unusual amino acid residues para-hydroxystyrylamide (pHSA)(More)
Three flavonoids were isolated from dried flowers of Sophora japonica using repetitive column chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography. The flavonoids were identified as rutin (1), quercetin-3'-O-methyl-3-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl(1 → 6)-β-D-glucopyranoside (2), and quercetin (3) on the basis of spectroscopic analysis and comparison of values(More)
Six new meroterpenoids (1-6), along with arenarol (7), a known rearranged drimane sesquiterpene hydroquinone, were isolated from a Dysidea sp. sponge collected from the Federated States of Micronesia. On the basis of the results of combined spectroscopic analysis, compound 1 was determined to be the cyclic ether derivative of 7, whereas 2 and 3 were(More)
Four new iodobenzene-containing dipeptides (1-4), a related bromotryptophan-containing dipeptide (5), and an iodophenethylamine (6) were isolated from the ascidian Aplidium sp. collected off the coast of Chuja-do, Korea. The structures of these novel compounds, designated as apliamides A-E (1-5) and apliamine A (6) were determined via combined spectroscopic(More)
Sortases are a family of Gram-positive transpeptidases responsible for anchoring surface protein virulence factors to the peptidoglycan cell wall layer. In Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), deletion of sortase isoform results in a significant reduction in virulence and infection potential. Twenty flavonoids were isolated from the stem of the folk medicinal(More)
Seven flavonoids were isolated from Spatholobus suberectus via repetitive column chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography. The chemical structures of these compounds were identified by spectroscopic analysis and comparison with values reported in the literature. Among the flavonoids tested, 7-hydroxy-6-methoxyflavanone (1) and formononetin(More)
Callyazepin (1) and (3R)-methylazacyclodecane (2), nitrogenous macrocycles, were isolated from a tropical Callyspongia sp. sponge. The combined spectroscopic analyses revealed that the structure of 1 is a bicyclic azepane ammonium salt of a novel structural class derived from mixed biogenetic origins. The configuration of the whole molecule and the(More)
Five new manzamine alkaloids (1-5) and new salt forms of two known manzamines (6 and 7), along with seven known compounds (8-14) of the same structural class, were isolated from an Indonesian Acanthostrongylophora sp. sponge. On the basis of the results of combined spectroscopic analyses, the structure of kepulauamine A (1) was determined to possess an(More)
