A novel dimeric bromopyrrole alkaloid, nagelamide J (1), with antimicrobial activity has been isolated from an Okinawan marine sponge Agelas species, and the structure and stereochemistry were elucidated from spectroscopic data. Nagelamide J (1) is the first bromopyrrole alkaloid possessing a cyclopentane ring fused to an amino imidazole ring.
