The well-known green sea urchin Strongylocentrotus drobachiensis (Müller) has been found to contain a new glycoprotein antineoplastic agent. The glycoprotein was found to produce 35-53(7 life extension in the P388 murine lymphocytic leukemia system and has been designated strongylostatin 1. Because of the toxicity of strongylostatin 1 it may also be a constituent of Strongylocentrotus drobachiensis venom.
