Diversity of Bacterial Communities Associated with the Indian Ocean Sponge Tsitsikamma favus That Contains the Bioactive Pyrroloiminoquinones, Tsitsikammamine A and B


Tsitsikamma favus is a latrunculid sponge endemic to the coast of South Africa that produces unique pyrroloiminoquinones known as tsitsikammamines. Wakayin and makaluvamine A are structurally similar to the tsitsikammamines and are the only pyrroloiminoquinones isolated from a source other than Porifera (namely a Fijian ascidian Clavelina sp. and a… (More)
