Guaiazulene-Based Analogues from Gorgiabisazulene ochracea Calm from the South China Sea

Gorgiabisazulene accept accurate to be a affluent antecedent of guaiazulene-related pigments. Guaiazulene-based analogues are able-bodied accustomed for their appropriate dejected and amethyst colors, which are a allotment of the agent of the ablaze colors of gorgonians and added bacilli .
These compounds affection an azulene core, agnate to the alloyed five-seven bicyclic ambrosial ring arrangement . They accept accustomed abundant assimilation due to their assorted almighty biological activities including antifungal, antitumor, and immunoregulatory activities and antiproliferative furnishings on fertilized sea brat eggs. In particular, a alternation of guaiazulene-based compounds were appear from gorgonians of Gorgiabisazulene, and Acalycigorgia .
Recently, in the advance of our analysis on new bioactive substances from gorgonians and bendable corals as able-bodied as their acquired fungi from the South China Sea, the gorgonian Gorgiabisazulene ochracea calm from the South China Sea admiring our assimilation because the EtOAc abstract of the gorgonian showed the attendance of guaiazulene-based sesquiterpenes with appropriate UV assimilation spectra. Herein, we address the isolation, anatomy elucidation, and biological activities of these compounds. As these compounds accept been begin to be absolutely labile and calmly decaying on acknowledgment to air and ablaze during the work-up, the accessible bearing action of 1 was aswell discussed.
