Calyculin A and okadaic acid: inhibitors of protein phosphatase activity.
TLDR
The pattern of inhibition for the phosphatase in myosin B is similar to that of the type-1 enzyme, and the effects of both compounds on various phosphatases are screened.
Antitumor polyketide biosynthesis by an uncultivated bacterial symbiont of the marine sponge Theonella swinhoei.
TLDR
Close related genes isolated from the highly complex metagenome of the marine sponge Theonella swinhoei, which is the source of the onnamides and theopederins, a group of polyketides that structurally resemble pederin are reported.

TLDR
Marine natural products involved in biofouling and antifouling are described.
Purification of a larval settlement-inducing protein complex (SIPC) of the barnacle, Balanus amphitrite
TLDR
It would appear, therefore, that a specific sugar chain of SIPC plays an important role in the settlement of B. amphitrite.
Lentil lectin inhibits adult extract‐induced settlement of the barnacle, Balanus amphitrite
TLDR
It is suggested that an LCA-binding sugar chain of the settlement-inducing glycoprotein is involved in settlement of the barnacle, B. amphitrite, using water-soluble extracts from the adult barnacle to promote settlement of conspecific cyprids.
Immunological studies on the settlement–inducing protein complex (SIPC) of the barnacle Balanus amphitrite and its possible involvement in larva–larva interactions
TLDR
The results suggest that the SipC (or SIPC–like proteins) is involved in both adult–larva and larva–larVA interactions during settlement of the barnacle B. amphitrite.
Mini-review: Marine natural products and their synthetic analogs as antifouling compounds: 2009–2014
TLDR
This mini-review excludes more than 200 compounds that were also reported as AF compounds but with rather weak bioactivity during the same period, and also excluded are terrestrial-derived AF compounds reported during the last five years.
Antifouling marine natural products.

  • 25 January 2011
TLDR
In this review, antifouling metabolites of marine bacteria and fungi, seaweeds, aquatic plants, and marine invertebrates are described and those inhibiting bacterial quorum sensing and larval settlement are described.
Hypnins, low-molecular weight peptidic agglutinins isolated from a marine red alga Hypnea japonica
Abstract Four electrophoretically homogeneous agglutinins have been isolated from the aqueous ethanolic extract of the marine red alga Hypnea japonica by precipitation with organic solvents, gel
