Previous studies have determined that Caribbean reef sponges of the genus Agelas are chemically defended from fish predation by brominated pyrrole alkaloids, and that the compounds responsible for this defense have been elucidated for 1 species, A. clathrodes. In this study, we ex- pand our understanding of chemical defense in this common sponge genus to include the character- ization of defensive metabolites in the tissues of A. wiedenmayeri and A. conifera. Bioassay-directed isolation of… Expand
