In recent years, marine natural products isolated from associated microorganisms have become a hot topic in medicine. It has been reported that secondary metabolites produced by sponge-associated fungi are of great importance for the discovery of active substances with novel structures and they own broad prospects for clinical medicine and the development of drugs. Herein, we summarize the structures of marine sponge-associated fungi including lactones, anthraquinones, pyrenes, chromones and others, as well as the bioactivities of polyketides from marine sponge-associated fungi.


Key words: sponge-associated, fungus, polyketides, structures, activity
