Bioassay-guided fractionation of the marine alga Dictyochloris fragrans led to the isolation and identification of sulfonoquinovosyl dipalmitoyl glyceride (1). The structure of 1 was determined by a combination of spectroscopic methods. On the basis of P-selectin inhibition assays (i.e., P-selectin-IgG ELISA, cell binding assay of receptor globulin, and platelet:HL60 adhesion, it was demonstrated that 1 selectively blocks the P-selectin-ligand interaction in vitro and could be considered a lead compound for synthetic modification in order to design more potent inhibitors of cell adhesion processes that play important roles in development of inflammatory-mediated disease states.
