Salegentibacter agarivorans sp. nov., a novel marine bacterium of the family Flavobacteriaceae isolated from the sponge Artemisina sp.
A sponge-associated strain, KMM 7019T, was investigated in a polyphasic taxonomic study. The bacterium was strictly aerobic, heterotrophic, Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, motile by gliding andExpand

Occurrence of a Silicatein Gene in Glass Sponges (Hexactinellida: Porifera)
Silicatein genes are involved in spicule formation in demosponges (Demospongiae: Porifera). However, numerous attempts to isolate silicatein genes from glass sponges (Hexactinellida: Porifera)Expand

Spongiadioxins A and B, two new polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins from an Australian marine sponge Dysidea dendyi.
Two new cytotoxic tetrabromodibenzo-p-dioxins, spongiadioxins A (1) and B (2), were isolated from an Australian marine sponge Dysidea dendyi. The structures of these compounds were established by 1DExpand

Silicatein Genes in Spicule-Forming and Nonspicule-forming Pacific Demosponges
Silicatein genes are known to be involved in siliceous spicule formation in marine sponges. Proteins encoded by these genes, silicateins, were recently proposed for nanobiotechnological applications.Expand

Three-dimensional chitin-based scaffolds from Verongida sponges (Demospongiae: Porifera). Part II: Biomimetic potential and applications.
In order to evaluate the biomedical potential of three-dimensional chitinous scaffolds of poriferan origin, chondrocyte culturing experiments were performed. It was shown for the first time thatExpand

Isolation and structures of erylosides from the Carribean sponge Erylus goffrilleri.
Eight new triterpene glycosides, erylosides R ( 1), S ( 2), T ( 3), U ( 4), F 5-F 7 ( 5- 7), and V ( 8), were isolated from the sponge Erylus goffrilleri collected near Arresife-Seko Reef (Cuba).Expand
