Abstract: While investigating the cytotoxic activity of the methanol extract of an Australian marine sponge Stelletta sp. (Demospongiae), a new diketopiperazine, cyclo-(4-S-hydroxy-R-proline-R-isoleucine) (1), was isolated together with the known bengamides; A (2), F (3), N (4), Y (5), and bengazoles; Z (6), C4 (7) and C6 (8). The isolation and structure elucidation of the diketopiperazine (1), together with the activity of 18 against a panel of human and mammalian cell lines are discussed.
Keywords: Stelletta; diketopiperazine (DKP); cyclo-(4-S-hydroxy-R-proline-R-isoleucine); bengamide; bengazole; anti-cancer activity
