Marine natural products.
Marine natural products.
This review covers the marine natural products literature for the year 2000 and is organized phylogenetically, with sections on marine microorganisms and phytoplankton, green algae, brown algae, redExpand
A brominated secondary metabolite synthesized by the cyanobacterial symbiont of a marine sponge and accumulation of the crystalline metabolite in the sponge tissue
The dictyoceratid marine sponge Dysidea herbacea (Keller, 1889) is common in shallow waters of the tropical Pacific Ocean. Polybrominated biphenyl ethers such asExpand
Gβγ-Mediated Regulation of Golgi Organization Is through the Direct Activation of Protein Kinase D
Abstract We have shown previously that the βγ subunits of the heterotrimeric G proteins regulate the organization of the pericentriolarly localized Golgi stacks. In this report, evidence is presentedExpand
Identification of the antifungal peptide-containing symbiont of the marine sponge Theonella swinhoei as a novel δ-proteobacterium, “Candidatus Entotheonella palauensis”
Abstract The Palauan sponge Theonella swinhoei (class Demospongiae, order Lithistida, family Theonellidae) harbors filamentous bacterial symbionts that contain theopalauamide, an antifungal, bicyclicExpand
A siderophore from a marine bacterium with an exceptional ferric ion affinity constant
VIRTUALLY all microorganisms require iron for growth. The paucity of iron in surface ocean water (∼0.02−1.0 nM (refs 1, 2)) has spurred a lively debate concerning iron limitation of primaryExpand
Two classes of metabolites fromTheonella swinhoei are localized in distinct populations of bacterial symbionts
The marine spongeTheonella swinhoei (lithistid Family Theonellidae, Order Astrophorida) has yielded many important, bioactive natural products, most of which share structural features with bacterialExpand
Marine pharmacology
Marine organisms have provided a large proportion of the bioactive natural products reported over the last 20 years, but none of these compounds have reached the pharmaceutical marketplace. ThisExpand
Antibiotic Metabolites from a Marine Pseudomonad
An antibiotic-producing pseudomonad was isolated from a seawater sample from a La Jolla, Calif., tidepool. The pseudomonad produces two novel antibacterial compounds, 2-n-pentyl-4-quinolinol andExpand
Lithistid Sponges: Star Performers or Hosts to the Stars.
Extremely careful separation of the symbiotic bacteria from the cells of lithistid sponges has provided evidence that in the case of Theonella swinhoei the chemically diverse and biologically activeExpand
