Abstract: Five bromophenols isolated from three Rhodomelaceae algae (Laurencia nipponica, Polysiphonia morrowii, Odonthalia corymbifera) showed inhibitory effects against glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD). Among them, the symmetric bromophenol dimer (5) showed the highest inhibitory activity against G6PD.
Keywords: bromophenol; Rhodomelaceae; pentose phosphate pathway (PPP); glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase; inhibition
