Four new and relatively low molecular weight (∼3,000–5,000), cell growth (PS) inhibitory peptides designated palystatins A–D have been isolated from the Indian Ocean Palythoa liscia Haddon and Duerden. The isolation utilized chromatographic procedures (Amberlite XAD-7 to Sephadex G-100) guided by bioassay with the P388 murine lymphocytic leukemia (PS system). Palystatins A–D exhibited PS cytotoxicity in the range ED50 0.02–0.0023 µg/ml.
