The marine natural products (MNPs) isolated from seaweeds-associated microbial communities have
received substantial attention owing to their exceptional nutritional and pharmacology application, such as antiviral,
anticancer, antiprotozoal, antifungal, and antibacterial properties and so on. Particularly, there are several
MNPs that have been displayed attractive value for the development of novel anticancer agents. This review
covers the literature published in the recent 5 years on the novel anticancer MNPs discovered originating from
seaweeds, and focused on the chemistry and relative anticancer activities of new MNPs which categorize their
source organisms. These seaweed-derived MNPs are categorized based on their origin as brown algae, red algae,
cyanobacteria, chlorophyta and others.
Keywords: Seaweeds, anticancer, MNPs, brown algae, red algae, cyanobacteria, chlorophyta.
