Investigation of Anti-cancer Compounds in the Marine Bryozoan Bugula pacifica

  • Author(s): Haygood, Margo G.
  • et al.

The original overall project objective was to discover anti-cancer compounds in Bugula pacifica. B. pacifica is related to B. neritina, whose bacterial symbionts produce anti-cancer polyketides called bryostatins. Preliminary results showed biological activity in B. pacifica extracts. B. pacifica also harbors a bacterial symbiont which also may produce bioactive polyketides.
