Lipids and Fatty Acids of Nudibranch Mollusks: Potential Sources of Bioactive Compounds

  title={Lipids and Fatty Acids of Nudibranch Mollusks: Potential Sources of Bioactive Compounds},
  author={Natalia V. Zhukova},
  booktitle={Marine drugs},
The molecular diversity of chemical compounds found in marine animals offers a good chance for the discovery of novel bioactive compounds of unique structures and diverse biological activities. Nudibranch mollusks, which are not protected by a shell and produce chemicals for various ecological uses, including defense against predators, have attracted great interest for their lipid composition. Lipid analysis of eight nudibranch species revealed dominant phospholipids, sterols and… CONTINUE READING
