Andropin, which encodes an antibacterial protein, is closely linked to the Cecropin gene cluster of D. melanogaster. Andropin and Cecropins are considered to have originated from one common ancestor. However, the expression pattern of Andropin is distinct from that of Cecropins, being restricted to the adult male ejaculatory duct. To elucidate the(More)
Antibacterial activity of (+)-negamycin (NGM) prepared by a new method was investigated for some bacteria. The results demonstrated that this antibacterial activity of synthesized NGM was almost the same as compared to that of naturally obtained NGM, and was also effective to Pseudomonas aeruginosa harboring multiple drug resistant plasmid kR102.
