Dermacoccus abyssi sp. nov. strains MT1.1 and MT1.2 are actinomycetes isolated from a Mariana Trench sediment at a depth of 10 898 m. The fermentation process using complex media led to the production of three new Pigmented heteroaromatic (oxidized and reduced) phenazine compounds, dermacozines H-J (1-3). Extensive use was made of ID and 2D NMR experiments and high-resolution MS to determine the structures of the compounds. The new dermacozines showed radical scavenging activity, and the highest activity was observed for dermacozine H (1), with an IC50 value of 18.8 mu M.
