  • This molecule is a new anti-tumor drug that was isolated by the University of Canterbury (Christchurch, New Zealand) from a sponge which was discovered off the coast of New Zealand. In the National Institute for Water and Atmospheric research (NIWA) archives, it is recorded as being "Green-sheep-sh*t like in appearance". The alkaloid they discovered was cytotoxic, but they needed a catchy name for it. They settled on "Coproverdine": Copro - sh*t, Ovis - sheep, and verdi - green.

    Maybe they meant "ovocoproverdine".
