Tracing 13C‐enriched dissolved and particulate organic carbon in the bacteria‐containing coral reef sponge Halisarca caerulea: Evidence for DOM‐feeding
Here we report on the trophodynamics of the bacteria-containing coral reef sponge Halisarca caerulea. The assimilation and respiration of the 13C-enriched substrates glucose, algal-derived dissolvedExpand

2,6-hexadecadiynoic acid and 2,6-nonadecadiynoic acid: Novel synthesized acetylenic fatty acids as potent antifungal agents
The hitherto unknown 2,6-hexadecadiynoic acid, 2,6-nonadecadiynoic acid, and 2,9-hexadecadiynoic acid were synthesized in two steps and in 11–18% overall yields starting from either 1,5-hexadiyne orExpand

Identification of novel iso/anteiso nonacosadienoic acids from the phospholipids of the sponges Chondrosia remiformis and Myrmekioderma styx.
The previously unreported 27-methyl-5,9-octacosadienoic acid [1] and 26-methyl-5,9-octacosadienoic acid [2] were identified in the phospholipids of the Caribbean sponges Chondrosia remiformis andExpand

5,9-Nonadecadienoic acids in malvaviscus arboreus and allamanda cathartica
Abstract The phospholipid fatty acid composition of Malvaviscus arboreus DC. (Malvaceae) and Allamanda cathartica L. (Apocynaceae) was studied. The fatty acids, 17-methyl-5,9-octadecadienoic acid,Expand
