A new decaline derivative, decumbenone C (1) along with four known compounds, decumbenones A (2) and B (3), diorcinol (4), and brevianamide F (5) were isolated from the marine fungus Aspergillus sulphureus KMM 4640. Decumbenone C shows potent cytotoxic activity against SK-MEL-5 human melanoma cells with IC50 values of 0.9 μM. 
New Diorcinol J Produced by Co-Cultivation of Marine Fungi Aspergillus sulphureus and Isaria felina
New diorcinol J was established using NMR spectroscopy and high-resolution mass spectrometry and their ability to enhance expression of heat shock protein Hsp70 in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma cells was investigated.

Bioactive Compounds from Marine Bacteria and Fungi
This review covers new biologically active natural products published recently and highlights the chemical potential of marine microorganisms, with focus on bioactive products as well as on their mechanisms of action.
Bioactive natural products from marine sponges and fungal endophytes
The activated chemical defence of the Mediterranean sponge Aplysina aerophoba is introduced as an example of a dynamic response of marine sponges to wounding and a preliminary characterization of the membrane bound enzyme(s) involved in the cleavage reaction is presented.
Fungal metabolites: structural diversity as incentive for anticancer drug development
An overview on the role of natural products in cancer therapy is given and some of the latest results of the group in this area are summarized.
Overproduction, purification and characterization of FtmPT1, a brevianamide F prenyltransferase from Aspergillus fumigatus.
FtmPT1 showed a high substrate specificity towards dimethylallyl diphosphate, but accepted different tryptophan-containing cyclic dipeptides, suggesting it belongs to a new group of prenyltransferases with aromatic substrates.
Certain Imidazotetrazines Escape O6-Methylguanine-DNA Methyltransferase and Mismatch Repair
It is concluded that analogs 11 and 13 exert anticancer activity irrespective of MGMT and MMR, and MMR-deficient colorectal carcinoma cells, resistant to TMZ, responded to analog 11 and13 treatment.
Characterization of the cellular reduction of 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT): subcellular localization, substrate dependence, and involvement of mitochondrial electron transport in MTT reduction.
Most cellular reduction of MTT occurs extramitochondrially and probably involves the pyridine nucleotide cofactors NADH and NADPH-dependent mechanisms that are insensitive to respiratory chain inhibitors.
