  • Marine sponges are a rich source of structurally novel and biologically active molecules. Among them is a class of alkylpyridinium compounds commonly found in sponges belonging to the order Haplosclerida. Alkylpyridinium compounds exert several biological activities and are therefore interesting as potential therapeutics. This review presents most alkylpyridinium and some other pyridinium compounds that have been isolated from marine sponges so far. The compounds are listed according to their… CONTINUE READING
