Marine cyanobacteria are an exceptionally rich source of novel peptide and integrated peptide-polyketide type natural products. Many of these natural products are potently cytotoxic to mammalian cells, and this has furthered their exploration as a source of new anticancer lead compounds. Intriguingly, many of these cyanobacterial natural.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
