Ageliferin is a chemical compound produced by some sponges. It was first isolated from Caribbean and then Okinawan marine sponges in the genus Agelas. It often co-exists with the related compound sceptrin and other similar compounds. (See also Agelas clathrodes and Agelas conifera.) It has antibacterial properties and can cause biofilms to dissolve.
