FEFU scientists in Vladivostok made a scientific discovery that can find application in medicine and agriculture. They revealed a new strain of sea fungus, in which there are six biologically active compounds previously unknown to science. One of them has a pronounced anti-inflammatory property, and the other is herbicidal.

According to the press service of the university, the scientists made the discovery together with specialists from the Pacific Institute of Biological Chemistry named after G.E. Elyakova and German colleagues. The authors of the study note that new herbicidal compounds have not appeared on the market for 30 years and their discovery can be of great benefit to agriculture in weed control.

In addition, one of the open compounds has an anti-inflammatory property. This was found out as a result of an experiment on cell lines of macrophages isolated from the body of mice. New substances can be used to develop anti-inflammatory drugs and even possibly new antibiotics.
