Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

A marine soft coral species of the genus Heteroxenia collected from Mindoro Island, Philippines yielded two cadinene sesquiterpenes, (+)-alpha-muurolene (1) and a novel derivative (+)-6-hydroxy-alpha-muurolene (2), as well as the biologically active polyhydroxysterol, sarcoaldosterol A (3). The structure of the novel compound was unambiguously established on the basis of NMR spectroscopic (1H, 13C, COSY, 1H-detected direct and long range 13C-1H correlations) and mass spectrometric (EIMS) data. All compounds were active against the phytopathogenic fungus Cladosporium cucumerinum. The isolated terpenes were also active in the brine shrimp lethality test.
