Chemical investigations of the Egyptian soft coral Sarcophyton ehrenbergi
have led to the isolation of compounds 1
as well as the previously reported marine cembranoid diterpene sarcophine (4
). Structures were elucidated by comprehensive NMR and HRMS experimentation. Isolated compounds were in vitro
assayed for cytotoxic activity against human hepatocarcinoma (HepG2) and breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cell lines.
