Two manzamine-class alkaloids, manzamine A (1) and 8-hydroxymanzamine (2) were isolated from a Japanese marine sponge Acanthostrongylophora aff. ingens, together with three known alkaloids manzamine E (3), manzamine F (4), and manzamine X (5). The spectral features of 1 and 2 were different from the reported data. Detailed structure analysis using 2D NMR revealed the structure of 1 and 2 as a free base form of hydrochloric salt. These manzamine-class alkaloids showed neuritogenic activity against Neuro 2a cells.
