The brominated pyrrolo[2,3-b]indole deformylflustrabromine was isolated as a new natural product from the bryozoan Flustra foliacea, collected in the North Sea. Deformylflustrabromine appears to be the missing link in the biosynthetic sequence from flustrabromine to flustraminol A. Flustramines A, D, and dihydroflustramine C were determined as other major constituents of the investigated sample. Deformylflustrabromine is cytotoxic against the human colon cancer cell line HCT-116 (IC50 5.8 μм).

Bromotryptamine and Imidazole Alkaloids with Anti-inflammatory Activity from the Bryozoan Flustra foliacea.

TLDR
Results demonstrate that F. foliacea from Iceland expresses a broad range of brominated alkaloids, many without structural precedents, and the potent anti-inflammatory activity in vitro of metabolite 27 warrants further investigations into its potential as a lead for inflammation-related diseases.

Synthesis of Marine Indole Alkaloids from Flustra foliacea

Brominated natural indoles are frequently reported metabolites of marine seaweeds. The bryozoan Flustra foliacea has been a rich source of brominated indole alkaloids bearing prenyl or isoprenyl

Doubly prenylated tryptamines: cytotoxicity, antimicrobial activity and cyclisation to the marine natural product flustramine A.

TLDR
Interestingly, the 2-tert-prenylated precursor revealed to be the biologically most active of the authors' entire series of 21 compounds and required for cytotoxicity and antimicrobial activity was the presence of a non-cyclised tryptamine side chain carrying a free secondary amine.

Review of bioactive secondary metabolites from marine bryozoans in the progress of new drugs discovery.

TLDR
This review summarizes 164 new secondary metabolites including macrocyclic lactones, sterols, alkaloids, sphingolipids and so forth from 24 marine bryozoans in the last two decades from which the possibility of using these compounds as starting points for new drug discovery is indicated.

Indole prenylation in alkaloid synthesis.

TLDR
This review article comprehensively summarises and discusses the currently available technologies of prenylation and tert-prenylation of indoles, which have been applied in natural products total syntheses or could be applied there in the near future.

Prenylated indole alkaloids are hybrid natural products derived from prenyl diphosphates and tryptophan or its precursors and widely distributed in filamentous fungi, especially in the genera

The Understudied Phylum Bryozoa as a Promising Source of Anticancer Drugs

TLDR
This review covers the literature for secondary metabolites isolated from marine cheilostome and ctenostome bryozoans that have shown potential as cancer drugs and highlights examples such as bryostatins, the most known class of marine-derived compounds from this animal phylum, which is advancing through anticancer clinical trials due to their low toxicity and antineoplastic activity.

Potential of a 7-dimethylallyltryptophan synthase as a tool for production of prenylated indole derivatives

TLDR
This study provided an additional example that prenylated indole derivatives can be effectively produced by using the overproduced and purified 7-DMATS, and proved unequivocally the preNylation at position C7 of the indole ring.
