Polymeric alkylpyridinium salts (poly-APS) isolated from the marine sponge Reniera sarai act as potent anticholinesterase agents; in addition they show moderate hemolytic and cytotoxic activities. The hemolytic activity of poly-APS is due to their detergent-like structure and behavior in aqueous solutions. In this work, the hemolytic activity of poly-APS is… CONTINUE READING
