Novel Very Long-Chain α-Methoxylated Δ5,9 Fatty Acids from the Sponge Asteropus niger Are Effective Inhibitors of Topoisomerases IB
1a and 1b represent a new class of FA with potential as TopIB inhibitors that preferentially inhibit hTopIB over LTopIB.
Novel Cyclopropane Fatty Acids from the Phospholipids of the Caribbean Sponge Pseudospongosorites suberitoides
The novel cyclopropyl fatty acids could have originated from the phospholipids of a cyanobacterium living in symbiosis with the hermit-crab sponge Pseudospongosorites suberitoides.

The total synthesis of (5Z,9Z)-(±)-2-methoxy-5,9-eicosadienoic acid and its acetylenic analog and it is reported that they inhibit the Leishmania donovani DNA topoisomerase IB enzyme (LdTopIB), indicating that the effectiveness of inhibition depends on the degree of unsaturation.
Chemical conjugation of 2-hexadecynoic acid to C5-curcumin enhances its antibacterial activity against multi-drug resistant bacteria.
