      The use of substances derived from plants, fungi, bacteria and marine organisms has a long tradition in medicine. This book highlights the biodiversity-driven approaches which are now of eminent importance in natural products research. It addresses the question why natural products display such a complex chemical information, what makes them often unique and what their characteristics are. Marine organisms form a prominent component of the oceanic population, which significantly contribute in the production of cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical molecules with biologically efficient moieties. In addition to the molecules of various.

The marine environment covers 70% of the earth’s surface and accounts for 98% of the potentially habitable space. The bioactives from marine microorganisms include antibiotic compounds, polysaccharides, inhibitors, enzymes, peptides, and Edition: 1st Edition. Following a definition of the field, the book goes on to address all industrially important aspects of marine microbial biotechnology.

The first main part contains a description of the major production organisms, from archaebacteria to cyanobacteria to algae and symbionts, including their genetic engineering/5(2).

His major research interests are the investigation and development of bioactive substances derived from marine organisms and their application as cosmeceuticals and nutraceuticals. Professor Kim is the current editor-in-chief of the Korean Journal of Marine Bioscience and Biotechnology.

Bioactive Compounds from Marine Extremophiles Authors: Giddings, Lesley-Ann, Newman, David J. Compounds from marine organisms. Cleveland: CRC Press, ©(OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Joseph T Baker; Vreni Murphy. About this book.

Deliberately breaking with the classical biology-centered description of marine organisms and their products, Marine Microbiology emphasizes microbial technology over basic biology, setting it apart from its predecessors. As such, it systematically covers the technology behind high-value compounds for use as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals or cosmetics, from prospecting to.

This SpringerBrief sheds new light on bioactive materials from marine extremophiles. It deals with all aspects of the chemical compounds produced by organisms living under extreme conditions that may have potential as drugs or lead to novel drugs for human use.

This review covers antifungal compounds from marine invertebrates. The intention is to convey to the reader the ‘lay of the land’ with respect to structural chemotypes produced by marine organisms from the IndoPacific and Atlantic oceans that are most frequently encountered during cell-based screening programs for antifungal by:   Biselyngbyaside, a macrolide compound from marine cyanobacteria Lyngbyasp., also inhibits osteoclastogenesis and induces apoptosis in mature osteoclasts [31].
