The bioassay-guided fractionation of the Okinawan marine cyanobacterium Okeania sp. led to the isolation of the novel cyclodepsipeptide odobromoamide (1). The gross structure of 1 was determined by spectroscopic analyses, and its absolute stereochemistry was determined using a variety of different methods, including chemical derivatization and degradation followed by HPLC analysis. In addition, odobromoamide (1) exhibited broad-spectrum cytotoxicity against a human cancer cell line panel.
