Bioassay-guided separation techniques were employed to isolate (3.3-10-7% yield) a new murine P388 lymphocytic leukemia cell line inhibitor (ED50 2.9 μg/ml) 12-O-deacetyl-19-deoxyscalarin from extracts of the Republic of Maldives marine sponge Hyrtios erecta. The structure was deduced using high field 2D NMR and high resolution mass spectral methods and confirmed by X-ray crystal structure determination.
