"Chemical Equation Presented" Chemical examination of the secondary metabolites of a marine Saccharomonospora sp., isolated from marine sediments collected at the mouth of the La Jolla Submarine Canyon, yielded the unprecedented alkaloid lodopyridone (1). The low proton-to-carbon ratio of 1 precluded structure elucidation by NMR spectroscopic methods, thus the structure was defined by X-ray crystallography. Lodopyridone is cytotoxic to HCT-116 human colon cancer cells with IC 50 = 3.6 μM.
