Biodiversity and Secondary Metabolites of Marine Sponges from Turkey

Rec. Nat. Prod. (2018) in press ; 1 - 12
by Hajar Heydari , Bulent Gozcelioglu and Belma Konulugil

Turkey is surrounded by the Black Sea, the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean sea, comprising a rich source of marine biodiversity. Among all marine species, sponges with a wide range of secondary metabolites are an important potential for drug discovery. There are many studies on sponges and their secondary metabolites, but not enough study about Turkish sponges. The present review gives an overview of the current research trends on secondary metabolites from Turkish marine sponges and some of their biological activities. Until today alkaloids, steroids and phenolic compounds have been isolated and determined from Turkish sponges. To our knowledge, this is the first review about Turkish sponges.  Furthermore, we have tried to introduce our Marine Herbarium of Ankara University Pharmacy Faculty (MAP).

New Xanthone from Millettia pachyloba Drake

Rec. Nat. Prod. (2018) in press ; 1 - 5
by Zhi Na , Qishi Song and Qingfei Fan

A new xanthone, 1,7-dihydroxy-2,3,5,6-tetramethoxyxanthone (1), together with eight known compounds including one xanthone (2) and seven isoflavones (3-9) has been isolated from the leaves of Millettia pachyloba. This is the first report on the isolation of xanthone from the genus Millettia. The structure of the compound 1 was elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data interpretation, including 1D and 2D NMR and HREIMS. Compound 1 exhibited weak cytotoxicity against five human cancer cell lines, HL-60, SMMC-7721, A-549, MCF-7 and SW480.

Anti-inflammation C19-diterpenoid Alkaloids from Delphinium giraldii Diels

Rec. Nat. Prod. (2018) in press ; 1 - 6
by Yan Liu , Zhiyang Liu , xinyi wang , Jing Zhang , Fangfang Liu and Yunlong Cong

Two new C19-diterpenoid alkaloids named Delphinium alkaloid A (1) and Delphinium alkaloid B (2) were isolated from the Delphinium (Ranunculaceae). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic and mass-spectrometric analyses, including 1D-, 2D-NMR and HR-Q-TOF-MS. Compound 1 showed anti-inflammatory activity by regulating the inflammatory reaction induced by LPS in Caco2 cell.

Phenolic Derivatives from Dioscorea bulbifera

Rec. Nat. Prod. (2018) in press ; 1 - 6
by Guokai Wang , Juan Zheng , Jaising Yang , Yunpeng Sun , Nan Zhang , Huiwen Liu and Guo-Kai Wang

Two new phenolic derivatives, diosbulbiol A (1), diosbulbiol B (2), and  six known compounds were isolated from Dioscorea bulbifera. Their structures was determined by MS, IR, UV, 1D- and 2D-NMR. The cytotoxicity of new compounds were evaluated against four cancer cell lines.
