The effect of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) on the production of various antibiotics was investigated to determine whether SAM-dependent methylation is required in biosynthetic pathways of antibiotics. Pristinamycin II(B) and granaticin do not require SAM-dependent methylation in their biosynthesis pathways, and production of these two antibiotics was(More)
The avermectins are composed of eight compounds, which exhibit structural differences at three positions. A family of four closely-related major components, A1a, A2a, B1a and B2a, has been identified. Of these components, B1a exhibits the most potent antihelminthic activity. The coexistence of the "1" components and "2" components has been accounted for by(More)
