Co-Cultivation—A Powerful Emerging Tool for Enhancing the Chemical Diversity of Microorganisms
This review highlights the power of co-cultivation for increasing the chemical diversity of bacteria and fungi drawing on published studies from the marine and from the terrestrial habitat alike. Expand
Bioactive Compounds from Marine Bacteria and Fungi
This review covers new biologically active natural products published recently and highlights the chemical potential of marine microorganisms, with focus on bioactive products as well as on their mechanisms of action. Expand
Xanalteric acids I and II and related phenolic compounds from an endophytic Alternaria sp. isolated from the mangrove plant Sonneratia alba.
Two new 10-oxo-10H-phenaleno[1,2,3-de]chromene-2-carboxylic acids, xanalteric acids I (1) and II (2), and 11 known secondary metabolites were obtained from extracts of the endophytic fungusExpand
Bioactive metabolites from the endophytic fungus Stemphylium globuliferum isolated from Mentha pulegium.
The endophytic fungus Stemphylium globuliferum was isolated from stem tissues of the Moroccan medicinal plant Mentha pulegium, and extracts of the fungus exhibited considerable cytotoxicity when tested in vitro against L5178Y cells. Expand
Neoechinulin B and its analogues as potential entry inhibitors of influenza viruses, targeting viral hemagglutinin.
The high potency and broad-spectrum activities against influenza viruses with less drug resistance make neoechinulin B as a new lead for the development of potential inhibitor of influenza viruses. Expand
Callyaerins A-F and H, new cytotoxic cyclic peptides from the Indonesian marine sponge Callyspongia aerizusa.
Seven new cytotoxic cyclic peptides callyaerins A-F (1-6) and H (8) showed biological activity in antibacterial assays and in various cytotoxicity assays employing different tumour cell-lines (L5178Y, HeLa, and PC12). Expand
Chromones from the endophytic fungus Pestalotiopsis sp. isolated from the chinese mangrove plant Rhizophora mucronata.
Six new chromones, named pestalotiopsones A-F (1-6), and the known derivative 7-hydroxy-2-(2-hydroxypropyl)-5-methylchromone (7) were obtained from the mycelia and culture filtrate of the mangroveExpand
Fungal endophytes associated with Sonneratia (Sonneratiaceae) mangrove plants on the south coast of China
High biodiversity and tissue specificity of endophytic fungi is found, and Cytospora, Diaporthe, Fusarium, Glomerella, Mycosphaerella, Phoma, Phomopsis and Stemphylium were the dominant fungal taxa. Expand
Xiamycin, a pentacyclic indolosesquiterpene with selective anti-HIV activity from a bacterial mangrove endophyte.
A novel pentacyclic indolosesquiterpene, named xiamycin (1), and its methyl ester (2) have been obtained from Streptomyces sp. GT2002/1503, an endophyte from the mangrove plant Bruguiera gymnorrhiza.Expand
Cytosporones, coumarins, and an alkaloid from the endophytic fungus Pestalotiopsis sp. isolated from the Chinese mangrove plant Rhizophoramucronata.
Chemical examination of the endophytic fungus Pestalotiopsis sp., isolated from the leaves of the Chinese mangrove Rhizophora mucronata, yielded 11 new compounds including cytosporones J-N (1-3,Expand
