Filamentous benthic marine cyanobacteria are a prolific source of structurally unique bioactive secondary metabolites. A total of 12 secondary metabolites, belonging to the mixed polyketide-polypeptide structural class, were isolated from the marine cyanobacterium, Lyngbya majuscula, and were tested to determine if they showed activity against barnacle larval settlement. The assays revealed four compounds, dolastatin 16, hantupeptin C, majusculamide A, and isomalyngamide A, that showed moderate… CONTINUE READING
