Chemical Constituents and Biological Properties of the Marine Soft Coral Nephthea: A Review (Part 2)
AbstractThis second part of the review dwells on Nephthea chabrolii and Nephthea Sp. which contain isoketochabrolic acid, ketochabrolic acid, sesquiterpenes, diterpenes and steroids. Corresponding biological activities such as anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activities have also been observed for the isolated constituents. Most of the new compounds isolated from the genus Nephthea are from N. chabrolii and N. Sp., among which steroids are the most abundant.
