A new sulfated cyclic depsipeptide, termed mutremdamide A, and six new highly N-methylated peptides, termed koshikamides C-H, were isolated from different deep-water specimens of Theonella swinhoei and Theonella cupola. Their structures were determined using extensive 2D NMR, ESI, or CDESI and QTOF-MS/MS experiments and absolute configurations established by quantum mechanical calculations, advanced Marfey's method, and chiral HPLC. Mutremdamide A displays a rare 2-amino-3-(2-hydroxyphenyl… Expand
Configurational assignments of conformationally restricted bis-monoterpene hydroquinones: utility in exploration of endangered plants.
This study of the Lindera melissifolia metabolome exemplifies how new chemistry remains undiscovered among the numerous endangered plant species and demonstrates how analysis by ECD and NMR combined with various QM calculations is a sensible approach to support the stereochemical assignment of molecules with conformationally restricted conformations.

Interaction between the marine sponge cyclic peptide theonellamide A and sterols in lipid bilayers as viewed by surface plasmon resonance and solid-state (2)H nuclear magnetic resonance.
This study demonstrates that TNM-A directly recognizes the 3β-OH moiety of sterols, which greatly facilitates its binding to bilayer membranes. Expand
Aetheramides A and B, potent HIV-inhibitory depsipeptides from a myxobacterium of the new genus "Aetherobacter".
Aetheramides are structurally distinctive cyclic peptides isolated from a novel myxobacterial genus proposed to be termed "Aetherobacter" and showed cytostatic activity against human colon carcinoma cells with IC(50) values of 0.11 μM. Expand

Mutremdamide A (I) and Koshikamides C—H, Peptide Inhibitors of HIV‐1 Entry from Different Theonella Species.
The highly N-methylated linear polypeptides koshikamide C-E and the cyclic analogues F-H are isolated from Theonella swinhoei and Theonella cupola.
α,β-Dehydroamino acids in naturally occurring peptides
The collected data show the relation between the structure and bioactivity of α,β-dehydroamino acids and allows the activity of compounds, which were not studied in this field but which belong to a larger peptide family to be predicted. Expand
Gombamide A, a cyclic thiopeptide from the sponge Clathria gombawuiensis.
The new peptide, gombamide A, was isolated from the marine sponge Clathria gombawuiensis and exhibited weak cytotoxicity against A549 and K562 cell lines as well as moderate inhibitory activity against Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase. Expand
Identification of the protease inhibitor miraziridine A in the Red sea sponge Theonella swinhoei
Theonella swinhoei from the Red Sea represents an alternative source of the aziridinylpeptide miraziridine A to the previously identified Theonella mirabilis from Japan, and the metabolite is produced by marine sponges from different geographical locations. Expand
New Cyclic Cystine Bridged Peptides from the Sponge Suberites waedoensis
Two new peptides, chujamides A and B, were isolated from the marine sponge Suberites waedoensis, which was collected from Korean waters and exhibited weak cytotoxicities against A549 and K562 cell-lines and moderate inhibitory activity against Na+/K+-ATPase. Expand
Marine sponge cyclic peptide theonellamide A disrupts lipid bilayer integrity without forming distinct membrane pores.
These results suggest that the membrane action of TNM-A proceeds in two steps: 1) TNm-A binds to the membrane surface through direct interaction with sterols and 2) accumulated TNC-A modifies the local membrane curvature in a concentration-dependent manner, resulting in dramatic membrane morphological changes and membrane disruption.
