Sammendrag

An antibacterial compound was isolated from the brown alga Fucus vesiculosus. Purification consisted of extraction of plant material with 0.05% trifluoroacetic acid, concentration on a C18 cartridge, and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography on a C18 semi-preparative column. The isolated compound exhibited antibacterial activity against both the Gram-positive and the Gram-negative bacteria tested. The compound showed no haemolytic effect against human red blood cells. Results obtained by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry indicated that the antibacterial activity was caused by a polyhydroxylated fucophlorethol.
