Dear coral-listers:
Merry Chrstmas to you all from Puerto Rico!
I am working on the effects of UV radiation on Acropora cervicornis and 
Porites furcata. So far, I have found around 8-9 different mycosporine-like 
amino acids (MAA's) in both species. Among them are:
Mycosporine-glycine, Mycosporine-2glycine, palythinol, usujirene and 
palythene. Yet, I don't have any standards to prove these are really the 
compounds. I wonder if any of you have some or know of a way of acquiring 
them? Any information will be greatly appreciated.
