Purification and Characterization of Extracellular 3β-Hydroxysteroid Oxidase produced by Streptoverticillium cholesterolicum
3β-Hydroxysteroid oxidase activity was detected in the broth filtrate of strain H 1109 MY 12. Based on taxonomic studies, this strain was shown to be a new species of genus Streptoverticillium andExpand
New antibiotics, carbazomycins A and B. III. Taxonomy and biosynthesis.
TLDR
The carbazomycin-producing microorganism, strain H 1051-MY 10, was determined to a strain of Streptoverticillium ehimense and neither of the labeled carbons, [1-14C]tryptophan nor [2,3-13C]propionic acid, was detected in the antibiotic, and a progenitor of the C-2 and C-11 moiety of the antibiotic has not been determined.

New antibiotics, carbazomycins A and B. I. Fermentation, extraction, purification and physico-chemical and biological properties.
TLDR
An unidentified Streptomyces, designated as Strain H 1051-MY 10, was proved to produce viomycin and two new antibiotics, which inhibited the growth of phytophathogenic fungi and further showed weak antibacterial and antiyeast activities. Expand
Inhibition of reverse transcriptase by limocrocin.
TLDR
The inhibitory activities of limocrocin against various kinds of DNA and RNA polymerases were studied and the results are described in this paper. Expand
Neo-enactin, a new antifungal antibiotic potentiating polyene antifungal antibiotics. II. Taxonomic studies of the producing microorganism and simultaneous production of bleomycin group and
A new antifungal antibiotic, named neo-enactin, was produced mainly in the mycelia of strain H 829-MY 10. Strain H 829-MY 10 was identified as a Streptoverticillium, determined to be nonchromogenic,Expand
Retrostatin, a new specific enzyme inhibitor against avian myeloblastosis virus reverse transcriptase.
A novel enzyme inhibitor against RNA-directed DNA polymerase of avian myeloblastosis virus was produced by an isolate of a new streptomycete for which the name Streptomyces retrostaticus is proposed.Expand
Production of Oleanene Triterpenes by Streptomyces
Three oleanene triterpenes have been isolated from the culture broth of Streptomyces strain H 1082-MY 15. Two of them were identified as known soybean sapogenols, soyasapogenols E and B. The thirdExpand
Histidinomycin, a new antifungal antibiotic.
TLDR
A new antifungal antibiotic named histidinomycin was isolated from the broth filtrate of a streptomycete, tentatively designated as isolate H 878-MY 1.HCl, and showed rather narrow antimicrobial spectrum for only few genera of phytophathogenic fungi. Expand
A NEW ANTIFUNGAL ANTIBIOTIC
A new antifungal antibiotic named histidinomycin was isolated from the broth filtrate of a streptomycete, tentatively designated as isolate H 878-MY 1. Histidinomycin was purified as theExpand
