A new (2) and four known (1, 8-10) sesquiterpenoids, two new (3 and 4) and eight known (5-7, 11-15) xanthone derivatives were isolated from the cultures of sponge-derived fungus Stachybotry sp. HH1 ZDDS1F1-2. The structure of the compounds 1-15 was determined mainly by analysis of the one-dimensional and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopic data and by analogy(More)
This study describes actinobacteria isolated from the marine sponge Haliclona sp. collected in shallow water of the South China Sea. A total of 54 actinobacteria were isolated using media selective for actinobacteria. Species diversity and natural product diversity of isolates from marine sponge Haliclona sp. were analysed. Twenty-four isolates were(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) signal changes correlated with ictal and interictal epileptic discharges using electroencephalography-correlated functional magnetic resonance imaging (EEG-fMRI) in patients with eyelid myoclonia with absences (EMA) and then to explore the pathophysiological mechanisms of epileptic(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as important regulators that potentially play critical roles in various biological processes. Previous studies have shown that miR-615 regulates proliferation and apoptosis in many types of cancers. The biological function of this microRNA in breast cancer remains largely unexplored. In the present study, we found that(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE The fruit of Thladiantha dubia has been used in Chinese manchu nationality folk medicine for treatment of various pains, such as rheumatic pain, lumbocrural pain, and dysmenorrhea. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the anti-rheumatic effect of Thladiantha dubia fruit crude polysaccharide (TF-P) fraction in rats. (More)
A new fungal strain, displaying strong toxic activity against brine shrimp larvae, was isolated from a deep sea sediment sample collected at a depth of 1300 m. The strain, designated as F00120, was identified as a member of the genus Penicillium on the basis of morphology and ITS sequence analysis. One new sesquiterpene quinone, named penicilliumin A (1),(More)
New norsesterterpenoids (3 and 4), a sesterterpenoid (6), pyrroloterpenoids (7-10), and a stereoisomer of kurospongin (5) were isolated, along with known furanosesterterpenes (11-15), from two marine sponges of the genus Sarcotragus. The gross structures were established on the basis of NMR and MS analysis. The stereochemistry was defined by combined use of(More)
A new polyhydroxy sterol ester, (25S)-5alpha-cholestane-3beta,6alpha,7alpha,8,15alpha,16beta-hexahydroxyl-26-O-14'Z-eicosenoate (1), together with seven known steroid derivatives (2-8), were isolated from the EtOH extract of the whole body of China Sea starfish Asterina pectinifera. The structure of 1 was determined by using extensive spectra analysis (IR,(More)
