Antiviral and antitumor agents from a new zealand sponge mycale sp 2. structures and solution conformations of mycalamides a and b
Mycalamide B has been found to occur with mycalamide A in a New Zealand sponge of the genus Mycale. Both are potent antiviral and antitumor agents. The solution conformations of mycalamide A have…
Evolving trends in the dereplication of natural product extracts: new methodology for rapid, small-scale investigation of natural product extracts.
The use of an HPLC bioactivity profiling/microtiter plate technique in conjunction with capillary probe NMR instrumentation and access to appropriate databases effectively short-circuits conventional…
Mycalamide A, an antiviral compound from a New Zealand sponge of the genus Mycale
Discorhabdin D, an antitumor alkaloid from the sponges Latrunculia brevis and Prianos sp.
The structure of discorhabdin D is reported here, based on spectral comparisons with the known discorhabdins. This structure possesses two further heterocyclic rings to give a total of seven…
Isolation and characterization of Myrianthus holstii lectin, a potent HIV-1 inhibitory protein from the plant Myrianthus holstii.
Pure MHL had anti-HIV activity, with an EC(50) value of 150 nM, and delayed the addition of MHL for up to 8 h after initial exposure of CEM-SS cells to virus did not result in loss of the antiviral activity; however, if addition of the compound was delayed for 16 h or more, there was a marked decrease in the antiv viral activity.
