While investigating the cytotoxic activity of the methanol extract of an Australian marine sponge Stelletta sp. (Demospongiae), a new diketopiperazine, cyclo-(4-S-hydroxy-R-proline-R-isoleucine) (1), was isolated together with the known bengamides; A (2), F (3), N (4), Y (5), and bengazoles; Z (6), C4 (7) and C6 (8). The isolation and structure elucidation of the diketopiperazine (1), together with the activity of 1–8 against a panel of human and mammalian cell lines are discussed.

A benzotriazole-mediated route to protected marine-derived hetero-2,5-diketopiperazines containing proline.
A procedure for the cyclization of dipeptidoyl benzotriazolides containing proline derivatives promoted by triethylamine under MW activation is introduced and represents a very practical and convenient method for the preparation of Pro- or Hyp-derived 2,5-diketopiperazines and bis-DKPs with a disulfide linker.
