A new polybrominated diphenyl ether (9), together with eight known compounds, were isolated from the crude organic extract of the marine sponge Dysidea sp. collected from the Federated States of Micronesia. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of various NMR spectroscopic data. These compounds exhibited inhibitory activities against Streptomyces 85E in the hyphae formation inhibition (HFI) assay and displayed antiproliferative activities against the human breast adenocarcinoma cancer cell line MCF-7. Compound 6 was selected for further evaluation in a cell cycle progression study.
