From the marine sponge Xestospongia exigua collected in Indonesia the fungus Aspergillus versicolor was isolated. Following cultivation in a seawater-based medium seven new angular tricyclic chromone derivatives (1-7) were obtained from the mycelia and culture filtrate. Compounds 2-7 contain an additional dihydropyran ring system which is replaced by a(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of organic extracts of Cladosporium herbarum, isolated from the marine sponge Callyspongia aerizusa, yielded two new macrolide metabolites: pandangolide 3 and 4 (1 and 2) and the known fungal metabolites pandangolide 2 (3), cladospolide B (4), and iso-cladospolide B (5). Also isolated were the antimicrobially active (against(More)
The effect of ethanolic extract of Morinda citrifolia leaves and fruit on blood pressure in dexamethasone-induced hypertension rat was evaluated. Total phenolic content of Morinda citrifolia leaves ethanolic extract (MCLEE) and Morinda citrifolia leaves ethanolic extract (MCFEE) was 1.789 ± 0.116 and 1.677 ± 0.051 mg of gallic acid equivalents per gram(More)
Complementary DNA libraries representing the capsid protein cistron of the potato virus Y (PVY) isolate ‘Chilean’, ‘Hungarian’, MsNr, NsNr, O, and ‘Potato US’ were synthesized and used as template for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification. An AUG codon for initiating a discrete capsid protein (CP) open reading frame was embedded upstream of the(More)
The study aimed to investigate the profile of alkaloids in two ethyl acetate soluble fractions, namely fractions A and B from an ethanolic extract of Ficus septica leaves and cytotoxic effect on T47D breast cancer cells. Preparation of both fractions involved maceration of leaves with 70% (v/v) ethanol, filtration with Al2O3, precipitation with 0.1 N HCl,(More)
From the marine sponge Callyspongia aerizusa collected from the Sea of Bali, Indonesia, fungal isolates of Drechslera hawaiiensis were obtained. Culture filtrates of the fungus yielded four spiciferone derivatives which include spiciferone A (1) and B (2), and two other novel derivatives including spiciferol A (3) which is an alcohol congener of spiciferone(More)
Identification of cytotoxic constituent of Indonesian sponge Kaliapsis sp. has been conducted. The structure identification was judged based on the spectroscopic data, namely, ultraviolet, MS, one and two-dimensional 1H-NMR and 13C-NMR methods. The cytotoxic constituent was identified as 1-(tetrahydro-4-hydroxy-5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-2-yl)-5-methyl(More)
