Antineoplastic agents. Part 395.1 Isolation and structure of agelagalastatin from the Papua New Guinea marine sponge Agelas sp.

Abstract

A human cancer cell line bioassay-directed investigation of the Western Pacific marine sponge Agelas sp. led to isolation of a trace (7.42 × 10–6% yield) cancer cell growth inhibitor (lung NCI-H460 GI50 0.77 µg m–1 to ovary OVCAR-3 GI50 2.8 µg ml–1) designated agelagalastatin 6; it is the first example of a natural product containing a digalactofuranosyl unit.
