Matthew, Susan, Paul, Valerie J., and Luesch, Hendrik. 2009. "Largamides A-C, Tiglic Acid-Containing Cyclodepsipeptides with Elastase-Inhibitory Activity from the Marine Cyanobacterium Lyngbya confervoides." Planta Medica 75 (5):528-533. https://doi.org/10.1055/s-0029-1185332
Three unusual tiglic acid-containing cyclodepsipeptides, possessing the revised regioisomeric structures for largamides A - C (1-3), have been isolated from the marine cyanobacterium Lyngbya confervoides collected from southeastern Florida. The two-dimensional structures were determined by NMR spectroscopy and the absolute configurations by chiral HPLC analysis of degradation products. Compounds 1-3 are moderate inhibitors of mammalian elastase activity in vitro with IC50 values ranging from 0.53 to 1.41 mu M.
