Biologically active metabolites of marine actinobacteria

Abstract

Data on the chemical structures and biologic activities of metabolites of obligate and facultative marine actinobacteria published between 2000 and 2007 are reviewed. The structural features of five groups of metabolites related to macrolides and compounds containing lactone, quinone, and diketopiperazine residues; cyclic peptides; alkaloids; and compounds of combined nature are discussed. The review shows the large chemical diversity of metabolites of actinobacteria isolated from marine ecotopes. In addition to metabolites identical to those previously isolated from terrestrial actinobacteria, marine actinobacteria produce compounds not found in other natural sources, including microorganisms. Probably, the biosynthesis of new chemotypes of bioactive compounds by marine actinobacteria is related to the chemical adaptation of microorganisms to the marine environment. The review emphasizes the importance of chemical studies of metabolites produced by marine actinobacteria. These studies will provide new data on marine microbial producers of biologically active compounds and the chemical structures and biologic activities of new natural lowmolecular-weight bioregulators.
