Marinoquinoline A (1) was isolated from the gliding bacterium Ohtaekwangia kribbensis together with the novel marinoquinolines B-F (2-6). Their structures were elucidated from NMR and HRESIMS data. The pyrroloquinolines showed weak antibacterial and antifungal activities and moderate cytotoxicity against four growing mammalian cell lines with IC(50) values ranging from 0.3 to 8.0 μg/mL. In a screening against tropical parasites marinoquinolines A-F (1-6) showed activity against Plasmodium… Expand
Hyaladione, an S-methyl cyclohexadiene-dione from Hyalangium minutum.
Compound 1 was active against growing mammalian cell lines, with IC(50) values ranging from 1.23 to 3.93 μM, in addition to a broad spectrum of antibacterial and antifungal activities, including inhibition of pathogenic methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa with an MIC of 0.83 and 8.5 μg mL(-1).

Novel Substituted Thiophenes and Sulf-Polyacetylene Ester from Echinops ritro L.
Three new substituted bithiophenes (1–3), and one new sulf-polyacetylene ester, ritroyne A (16) were isolated from the whole plant of Echinops ritro together with twelve known substituted thiophenes.Expand
Pyrronazols, metabolites from the myxobacteria Nannocystis pusilla and N. exedens, are unusual chlorinated pyrone-oxazole-pyrroles.
HRESIMS, NMR, and X-ray crystallographic analysis was used in the structure elucidation including the absolute configuration of pyrronazol A (1), which showed no significant cytotoxicity and 6 showed weak antibacterial and antifungal activity against some of the strains tested. Expand
Monochlorinated calocerins A-D and 9-oxostrobilurin derivatives from the basidiomycete Favolaschia calocera.
Eight previously undescribed compounds were isolated and characterised from the supernatant and mycelium of a culture of the basidiomycete Favolaschia calocera originating from Kakamega equatorial rainforest in Kenya, extending the knowledge of halogenated compounds obtained from natural sources. Expand
Two cytotoxic triterpenes from cultures of a Kenyan Laetiporus sp. (Basidiomycota)
HPLC profiling of the mycelial culture of a poroid basidomycete collected in Mount Elgon, Kenya, led to isolation of two previously undescribed lanostane type triterpenes, which are proposed to be laetiporins A and B. Expand
Laxitextines A and B, Cyathane Xylosides from the Tropical Fungus Laxitextum incrustatum.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the mycelial extract of a basidiomycete culture collected in Kenya led to the isolation of two new cyathane diterpenoids named laxitextines A and B, which exhibited moderate activities against Gram-positive bacteria Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus a Aureus, and methicillin-resistant Staph.

Indothiazinone, an indolyl thiazolyl ketone from a novel myxobacterium belonging to the Sorangiineae.
Indothiazinone (1), an indolyl thiazolyl ketone, was discovered in cultures of novel myxobacterial strain 706, recently isolated from compost in Germany, and 2-Hydroxyethyl-3-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone (7) was recognized during dereplication as an antibiotic previously isolated from Actinoplanes capillaceus. Expand
Antimicrobial and cytotoxic phenolics and phenolic glycosides from Sargentodoxa cuneata.
S. cuneata is a potential plant source for further research targeting bacteria and cancer diseases, and three compounds exhibited significant inhibition of proliferation in the two cell lines Hela and Siha, and showed stronger inhibitive activity of these two selected cell lines than cisplatin in the cytotoxic assay.

Hymenosetin, a 3-decalinoyltetramic acid antibiotic from cultures of the ash dieback pathogen, Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus.
Whether hymenosetin constitutes a defence metabolite that is produced by the pathogenic fungus to combat other microbes and fungi in the natural environment is shown. Expand
Cohaerins G-K, azaphilone pigments from Annulohypoxylon cohaerens and absolute stereochemistry of cohaerins C-K.
Four azaphilones were isolated from the methanolic stromatal extract of Annulohypoxylon cohaerens together with the known metabolites cohaerins C-F and 4,5,4',5'-tetrahydroxy-1,1'-binaphthyl (BNT) and showed cytotoxic effects besides a weak antimicrobial activity. Expand


Acetylcholinesterase-Inhibiting Activity of Pyrrole Derivatives from a Novel Marine Gliding Bacterium, Rapidithrix thailandica
Two related pyrrole derivatives, 3-(2′-aminophenyl)-pyrrole (3) and 2,2-dimethyl-pyrrolo-1, 2-dihydroquinoline (4), were also isolated from two other strains of R. thailandica, and the isolation of 3 from a natural source is reported here for the first time. Expand
Nostocarboline: isolation and synthesis of a new cholinesterase inhibitor from Nostoc 78-12A.
Nostocarboline was found to be a potent butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitor, with an IC(50) of 13.2 microM, which is comparable to galanthamine, an approved drug for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Expand
Pityriacitrin – an ultraviolet-absorbing indole alkaloid from the yeast Malassezia furfur
Pityriasis versicolor induced by Malassezia yeasts is characterized by depigmented skin areas showing reduced melanin synthesis but no increased UV sensitivity, which might be explained by the presence of pityriacitrin which is produced by M. furfur. Expand
Antimalarial and antitubercular nostocarboline and eudistomin derivatives: synthesis, in vitro and in vivo biological evaluation.
Nostocarboline and derivatives displayed potent and selective in vitro inhibition of P. falciparum, albeit with pronounced cytotoxicity, and three eudostomin derivatives were evaluated in an in vivo Plasmodium berghei mouse model. Expand
Structure-activity relationship of antiparasitic and cytotoxic indoloquinoline alkaloids, and their tricyclic and bicyclic analogues.
None of the bicyclic compounds was significantly active against the chloroquine-resistant strain Plasmodium falciparum K1, in contrast to the tricyclic derivatives. Expand
Ohtaekwangia koreensis gen. nov., sp. nov. and Ohtaekwangia kribbensis sp. nov., isolated from marine sand, deep-branching members of the phylum Bacteroidetes.
