      In the course of work   aimed at the discovery of new pharmaceutical lead compounds from   marine bacteria, a lipophilic extract of the bacterium   Pseudoalteromonas rubra displayed significant cytotoxicity   against SKOV-3, a human ovarian adenocarcinoma cell line.   Bioassay-directed fractionation of this extract resulted in the   isolation of a series of known and new prodiginine-type   azafulvenes. The structure of the major metabolite was elucidated   by interpretation of spectroscopic data as a 2 substituted   prodigiosin, which we named 2-(p-hydroxybenzyl)prodigiosin   (HBPG).
