Chemical investigation of the cytotoxic EtOH extract of the marine tunicate Eudistoma album led to the isolation of three brominated beta-carbolines which were characterized by their spectral data. Two of them, eudistomin E, which is already known for its potent antiviral activity, and the novel compound eudistalbin A [1], were shown to possess cytotoxic activity (ED50 less than 5.0 ng and 3.2 micrograms/ml respectively) in vitro against the growth of KB human buccal carcinoma cells. The third…

New Isoeudistomin Class Dihydro-β-Carbolines from an Undescribed Ascidian of the Genus Eudistoma.

Two new dihydro-β-carbolines have been isolated from an undescribed Western Australian ascidian of the genus Eudistoma by comprehensive spectral analyses primarily involving 2D NMR.

7-Bromo-1-ethyl-β-carboline, an Alkaloid from the New Zealand Marine Bryozoan Pterocella vesiculosa

A new alkaloid, 7-bromo-1-ethyl-β-carboline (1) has been isolated from the New Zealand marine bryozoan Pterocella vesiculosa (Lamarck, 1816). Structural elucidation was achieved through NMR
