Microbulbifer variabilis sp. nov. and Microbulbifer epialgicus sp. nov., isolated from Pacific marine algae, possess a rod-coccus cell cycle in association with the growth phase.
Phylogenetic and taxonomic characterization was performed for 14 strains of bacteria that produce anticancer antibiotics (pelagiomicins) (represented by strain Ni-2088(T)) and one strain thatExpand

Synthesis and structure-activity relationship of botryllamides that block the ABCG2 multidrug transporter.
In previous work, botryllamides discovered from the marine ascidian Botryllus tyreus were characterized as selective inhibitors of the ABCG2 multidrug transporter. However, the structural basis forExpand

A novel chitinase inhibitor from a marine bacterium, Pseudomonas sp.
A new chitinase inhibitor, CI-4, was isolated from the culture broth of a marine bacterium Pseudomonas sp. IZ208. The structure of CI-4 was determined to be cyclo(L-Arg-D-Pro) by spectral studies andExpand
