An environmental bacterial taxon with a large and distinct metabolic repertoire
Cultivated bacteria such as actinomycetes are a highly useful source of biomedically important natural products. However, such ‘talented’ producers represent only a minute fraction of the entire,Expand

Gliotoxin analogues from a marine-derived fungus, Penicillium sp., and their cytotoxic and histone methyltransferase inhibitory activities.
Seven gliotoxin-related compounds were isolated from the fungus Penicillium sp. strain JMF034, obtained from deep sea sediments of Suruga Bay, Japan. These included two new metabolites,Expand

Nobiloside, a new neuraminidase inhibitory triterpenoidal saponin from the marine sponge Erylus nobilis.
A neuraminidase inhibitor, nobiloside (1), was isolated from the marine sponge Erylus nobilis Thiele, 1903. Its structure was determined as a penasterol trisaccharide. The absolute configurationsExpand

A squalene synthase-like enzyme initiates production of tetraterpenoid hydrocarbons in Botryococcus braunii Race L
The green microalga Botryococcus braunii is considered a promising biofuel feedstock producer due to its prodigious accumulation of hydrocarbon oils that can be converted into fuels. B. braunii RaceExpand

X-ray analysis on the nanogram to microgram scale using porous complexes
X-ray single-crystal diffraction (SCD) analysis has the intrinsic limitation that the target molecules must be obtained as single crystals. Here we report a protocol for SCD analysis that does notExpand

Synthesis and structure-activity relationship of botryllamides that block the ABCG2 multidrug transporter.
In previous work, botryllamides discovered from the marine ascidian Botryllus tyreus were characterized as selective inhibitors of the ABCG2 multidrug transporter. However, the structural basis forExpand

Surugamides A-E, cyclic octapeptides with four D-amino acid residues, from a marine Streptomyces sp.: LC-MS-aided inspection of partial hydrolysates for the distinction of D- and L-amino acid
Surugamides A-E (1-5), cyclic octapeptides with four D-amino acid residues, were isolated from the broth of marine-derived Streptomyces sp. Their planar structures were determined by analyses ofExpand

Botryllamides: natural product inhibitors of ABCG2.
ABCG2 is a membrane-localized, human transporter protein that has been demonstrated to reduce the intracellular accumulation of substrates through ATP-dependent efflux. Highly expressed in placentalExpand
