The sponge Petrosia
sp. yielded five polyacetylenic compounds (1
), including two new polyacetylenes, petrosianynes A (1
) and B (2
). The structures of these compounds were elucidated by detailed spectroscopic analysis and by comparison with the physical and spectral data of related known analogues. Compounds 1
exhibited significant cytotoxic activity against a limited panel of cancer cell lines.
