Isolation of a New Carotenoid Pigment from an Undescribed Gorgonian of the Genus Muricella
Jung-Rae Rho, Youngwan Seo, Ki Woong Cho, Jun-Im Song**,Jongheon Shin*
Muricellaxanthin, a novel carotenoid pigment has been isolated by activity-guided separation from an undescribed gorgonian of the genus Muricella collected from Jaeju Island. Structure of this compound has been determined by a combination of spectral methods. Stereochemistry has been defined by interpretation of nOe data and comparison of CD data with related compounds. Muricellaxanthin exhibited potent lethality against brine-shrimp larvae.
