Abstract

Abstract A novel 330 nm UV absorbing compound, a methylamine substituted mycosporine ( 1), was isolated from methanol extracts of two hermatypic scleractinians. Structural elucidation yielded the molecular formula C 13H 22N 2O 6. This was given the trivial name Mycosporine-methylamine:threonine.
