Abstract:


Respiratory viruses, including influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus, coronavirus, etc., have seriously threatened the human health. For example, the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, SARS, affected a large number of countries around the world. Marine organisms, which could produce secondary metabolites with novel structures and abundant biological activities, are an important source for seeking effective drugs against respiratory viruses. This report reviews marine natural products with activities against respiratory viruses, the emphasis of which was put on structures and antiviral activities of these natural products. This review has described 167 marinederived secondary metabolites with activities against respiratory viruses published from 1981 to 2019. Altogether 102 references are cited in this review article.

Keywords:

Marine-derived fungi, marine-derived bacteria, polyketides, alkaloids, respiratory virus, activities against respiratory viruses.
