Graphical Abstract:


Recently, the marine-derived Aspergillus present as producers of a large number of structurally novel secondary metabolites. Some of these metabolites have shown antitumor, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and enzymatic activities, and may be promising resources for new therapeutic drugs. This review sums up 232 new bioactive metabolites from the marine-derived Aspergillus with classification through their biological activities and chemical structures in 2006-2016. Besides, structure-activity relationships of some compounds are explored.

Keywords: Marine-derived Aspergillus, metabolites, cytotoxic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, enzymatic activities, structureactivity.
