Halogenated natural products are frequently reported metabolites in marine seaweeds. These compounds span a range from halogenated indoles, terpenes, acetogenins, phenols, etc., to volatile halogenated hydrocarbons that are produced on a very large scale. In many cases these halogenated marine metabolites possess biological activities of pharmacological interest. Given the abundance of halogenated marine natural products found in marine organisms and their potentially important biological… 
Research Development on Vanadium-Dependent Haloperoxidases in Marine Algae

The types, biological properties, and molecular structures of marine algae vHPOs as well as their biochemical function and potential industrial applications are contemplates.
Investigating the biosynthesis of halogenated meroterpenoid natural products from marine actinomycetes
TLDR

Structure and function of vanadium haloperoxidases
TLDR
The surprising evolutionary relationship between the bacterial and mammalian acid phosphatases that hydrolyze phosphate monoesters and the vanadium haloperoxidases will be shown.
Molecular Basis for Chloronium-mediated Meroterpene Cyclization
TLDR
Heterologous expression of the CNQ-525-based nap biosynthetic cluster in Streptomyces albus produced at least seven napyradiomycins, including the new analog 2-deschloro-2-hydroxy-A80915C, which resulted in the first in vivo verification of vanadium-dependent haloperoxidases.

Volatile Halogenated Organic Compounds Released to Seawater from Temperate Marine Macroalgae
TLDR
The macroalgae may be an important source of bromine-containing material released to the atmosphere and certain compounds, including polybromomethanes and several previously unobserved alkyl monohalides and dihalides, appear to be natural products of the marine environment.
