  • Red Sea sponges offer a potential for production of novel drugs and prototypes. The genus Negombata is a type of sponges abundant in the Red Sea. This sponge produces latrunculins that have well documented antitumor activity in addition to antimicrobial and antiviral effects. The identification of Negombata species is based on morphology and microscopical examination of megascleres of spicules. However, these criteria have proven to be unreliable for identification. Therefore, this study was… CONTINUE READING
