Isoprenoid fatty acids from marine sponges. Are sponges selective?

, : Isoprenoid fatty acids from marine sponges. Are sponges selective?. Lipids 22(10): 767-769

The burrowing sponges Anthosigmella varians and Spheciospongia vesparium were found to be rich in the isoprenoid phospholipid fatty acid 4,8,12-trimethyltridecanoic (5.2% and 23%, respectively, of the total fatty acid composition), while the burrowing sponge Chondrilla nucula and the demosponge Agelas dispar contained the acid 3,7,11,15-tetramethylhexadecanoic (13.8% and 8.6%, respectively, of the total phospholipid fatty acid composition). No other isoprenoid fatty acid was found, and the two acids described in this work did not occur concomitantly in the same sponge.
