New bromotyrosine alkaloids from the marine sponge Psammaplysilla purpurea
MetadataShow full item record
Seven new bromotyrosine alkaloids Purpurealidin A, B, C, D, F, G, H and the known compounds Purealidin Q, Purpurealidin E, 16-Debromoaplysamine-4 and Purpuramine I have been isolated from the marine sponge Psammaplysilla purpurea. Their structure was elucidated on the basis of detailed 1D, 2D NMR and MS spectroscopic data. Purpurealidin B, 16-Debromoaplysamine-4 and Purpuramine I exhibited in vitro antimicrobial activities against E. coli, S. aureus, and V. cholerae. In addition, Purpurealidin B and 16-Debromoaplysamine-4 were also active against Shigella flexineri and Salmonella typhi while Purealidin Q was bactericidal only against Salmonella typhi.
