Cytotoxic Cembranoid Diterpenes

Posted by naturalproductman on June 16, 2009

A group of cembranoid diterpenes were isolated from the soft coral S. trocheliophorum by Chang-Yih Duh in National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan and was reported in 1996 in the Journal of Natural Products.  These groups of compounds possessed cytotoxic activity especially towards P-388 cells (ie:  10 ng/mL).
