A new norsesquiterpene nephthediol (1) and a new sesquiterpene nephthetetraol (2) were isolated with guaianediol (3) from a soft coral of the genus Nephthea. Their structures were deduced on the basis of spectroscopic methods. 
Chemical Constituents and Biological Properties of the Marine Soft Coral Nephthea : A Review (Part 2)
This second part of the review dwells on Nephthea chabrolii and Nephthea Sp. which contain isoketochabrolic acid, ketochabrolic acid, sesquiterpenes, diterpenes and steroids. Corresponding biological
Chemical Constituents and Biological Properties of the Marine Soft Coral Nephthea: A Review (Part 1)
TLDR
The purpose of the review is to draw greater attention to the potentials of soft corals as a source of new drugs and secondary metabolites in the Indo-Pacific region.
Litoarbolide A: an undescribed sesquiterpenoid from the Red Sea soft coral Litophyton arboreum with an in vitro anti-malarial activity evaluation.
Soft corals distributed across the Red Sea coasts are a rich source of diverse and bioactive natural products. Chemical probing of the Red Sea soft coral Litophyton arboreum led to isolation and
Natural metabolites from the soft coral Nephthea sp. as potential SARS-CoV-2 main protease inhibitors
TLDR
Interestingly, an acylated tetraprenyltoluquinol glycoside exhibited the highest binding capacity in both software with comparable interaction energies to the ligand N3 and moderately acceptable drug-likeness properties, which drew attention to the relevance of marine-derived metabolites from Nephthea sp.
Chemical and Biological Studies of Soft Corals of the Nephtheidae Family
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the response of marine microorganisms to E. coli infection.
Three new eudesmanoids from the Formosan soft coral Nephthea erecta
TLDR
The structures of metabolites 1–3 were elucidated through extensive spectroscopic analyses and by comparison with those reported in the literature and the anti-inflammatory activity using RAW 264.7 macrophages and their cytotoxicity against selected cancer cells of 1-3 were evaluated in vitro.
