Dinoflagellates are an important source of unique bioactive secondary metabolites. Symbiotic species, commonly named zooxanthellae, transfer most of their photosynthetically fixed carbon to their host. The mutualistic relationship provides the organic metabolites used for energy production but there are very few reports of the role of the dinoflagellates in the production of secondary metabolites in the symbiotic association. Corals and other related cnidarians are the most well-known animals… Expand

Diterpene biosynthesis by the dinoflagellate symbiont of the Caribbean gorgonian Pseudopterogorgia bipinnata
Biosynthetic studies of the dinoflagellate symbiont of Pseudopterogorgia bipinnata indicated that this alga is capable of kallolide biosynthesis, and small subunit rDNA restriction fragment length polymorphism patterns and internal transcribed spacer sequences of the zooxanthellae associated with the 4 chemo- types for genetic differences that could explain the chemical differences.

Bioactive secondary metabolites from symbiotic marine dinoflagellates: symbiodinolide and durinskiols.
A selective cleavage reaction of allylic 1,2-diol using an olefin metathesis catalyst, and developed a fluorescent-labeling method for MS/MS analysis to achieve the structural elucidation of huge polyol compounds are found. Expand
A new species of Marionia (Opisthobranchia: Nudibranchia: Tritoniidae) from the tropical South Atlantic Ocean
A new species of the family Tritoniidae is described for the tropical South Atlantic Ocean. The animal was found off north-east Brazil. Marionia limceana sp. nov. is up to 31 mm long, with a sturdyExpand
Pseudopterosin biosynthesis in Symbiodinium sp., the dinoflagellate symbiont of Pseudopterogorgia elisabethae.
Results reveal for the first time that pseudopterosin biosynthesis is occurring within the algal symbiont and suggests the physiological implications of this biosynthesis. Expand
Cell Biology of Cnidarian-Dinoflagellate Symbiosis
A comprehensive overview of the history of the cnidarian/coral-dinoflagellate symbiosis, its current status, and where it should be going in the future is provided. Expand
Neither medium meets the exacting nutritional needs of all the ultraphytoplankton forms tested, but they are excellent for most oceanic clones and are very successful for the isolation and establishment in culture of new oceanic phytopLankton clones. Expand
Amphidinolides, bioactive macrolides from symbiotic marine dinoflagellates.
This review covers the structures, synthesis, biosynthesis, and bioactivity of a series of cytotoxic macrolides, named amphidinolides, isolated from symbiotic marine dinoflagellates of the genusExpand
Neurotoxins from Marine Dinoflagellates: A Brief Review
This review summarizes the origin, structure and clinical symptoms of PSP, NSP, CFP, AZP, yessotoxin and palytoxin produced by marine dinoflagellates, as well as their molecular mechanisms of action on voltage-gated ion channels. Expand
Symbiodinium—Invertebrate Symbioses and the Role of Metabolomics
The metabolites related to nutritional roles, diel cycles and the common metabolites associated with the invertebrate-Symbiodinium relationship are summarized and the key role that metabolomics and functional genomics will play in understanding these important symbioses is discussed. Expand
Detection of introduced sessile species on the near shore continental shelf in southern Brazil.
Not only are estuaries invaded by exotic species, but also non-indigenous marine species may be present in the open sea where they are likely to colonize artificial substrates. Expand
