Manzamine alkaloids

Manzamine alkaloids can be isolated from marine sponges. They often contain ft-carboline. This group has a diverse range of bioactivities. It also has its own way of establishing its structures. An intramolecular Diels-Adler reaction for manzamines has been proposed. The a is bisdihydropyridine (derived probably from amonia), and the ft is intramolecular cycloaddition in a pentacyclic

The best-known manzamines are ent-8-hydroxymanzamine A, manzamines B-M and X, keramamine, kauluamine and xestomanzamines A and B.
