A new 9,11-secosterol with a 1,4-quinone from a Korean marine sponge Ircinia sp.
The chemical structure of this compound was elucidated based on the interpretation of NMR and MS spectroscopic data and exhibited antibacterial activities against Staphylococcus epidermidis and Bacillus subtilis with MIC values of 6.3 and 25 μg ml−1, respectively. Expand
Marine natural products from sponges (Porifera) of the order Dictyoceratida (2013 to 2019); a promising source for drug discovery
In this review, compounds isolated from Dictyoceratida sponges were discussed with their biological potential within the period 2013 to December 2019 and the results showed that 78% of the compounds have oral bioavailability potential. Expand
Pinnisterols D–J, New 11-Acetoxy-9,11-secosterols with a 1,4-Quinone Moiety from Formosan Gorgonian Coral Pinnigorgia sp. (Gorgoniidae)
Seven new marine 11-acetoxy-9,11-secosterols, pinnisterols D–J (1–7), with a 1,4-quinone moiety, were discovered from the gorgonian coral Pinnigorgia sp. In this study, the structures of secosterolsExpand

Palinurin, a new linear sesterterpene from a marine sponge
The structure of a new linear sesterterpene, palinurin (1), obtained from the marine spongeIrcinia variabilis, was determined by spectral and chemical means.
Structure of a novel multidrug resistance modulator, irciniasulfonic acid, isolated from a marine sponge, Ircinia sp.
Irciniasulfonic acid was obtained from a marine sponge of Ircinia sp. Spectroscopic and chemical analyses revealed its structure consists of three different kinds of acids, i.e. common fatty acids, aExpand
