Identification of anti-inflammatory diterpenes from the marine gorgonian Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae
Analysis of the terpene metabolites of Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae collected from the Florida Keys has resulted in the identification of a novel hydroxyquinone, elisabethadione (1), as well as newExpand

Cryopreservation of the dinoflagellate symbiont of the octocoral Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae
In this paper we describe a cryopreservation protocol followed by the culture of Symbiodinium sp. isolated from the Caribbean gorgonian Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae as a potential renewable sourceExpand
