Antiviral activity of diterpenes isolated from the Brazilian marine alga Dictyota menstrualis against human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1).
The effects of the diterpenes isolated from the Brazilian brown algae Dictyota pfaffii and Dictyota menstrualis against the herpes simplex type-1 replicative cycle.
The results suggest that the structures of compounds 1 and 2, Brazilian brown algae diterpenes, might be promising for future antiviral design, suggesting that these compounds inhibit initial events during HSV-1 replication.

It is proposed that VBPO promotes the binding of PS molecules to the ALG uronic acids residues, and it is suggested that PS are components of the brown algal cell walls.
Caulerpin as a potential antiviral drug against herpes simplex virus type 1
It is shown that caulerpin could be an alternative to acyclovir as an anti-HSV-1 drug that inhibits the alpha and beta phases of the replication cycle.
The dolabellane diterpene Dolabelladienetriol is a typical noncompetitive inhibitor of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase enzyme.
