Bacterial strains belonging to the class actinomycetes were isolated from the soil near a thermal vent of the Ruth Mullins coal fire (Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky). High-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and ultraviolet absorption profiles of metabolites from one of the isolates (Streptomyces sp. RM-7-15) revealed the(More)
1. In the retina, as in other regions of the vertebrate central nervous system, glutamate receptors mediate excitatory chemical synaptic transmission and are a critical site for the regulation of cellular communication. In this study, retinal horizontal cells from the hybrid less were dissociated in cell culture, voltage clamped by the whole cell recording(More)
Bone resorption is glucose concentration dependent. Mechanisms regulating glucose-dependent increases in bone resorption have not been identified. Glucose activates p38 MAP-kinase in other cells and since MAP kinases activate transcription factors, we hypothesized that glucose-stimulated bone resorption may be modulated by increased expression of the(More)
Venturicidin C (1), a new 20-membered macrolide along with the known venturicidins A (2) and B (3) were isolated from the crude extract of the Appalachian bacterial strain Streptomyces sp. TS-2-2. Additionally, nine other known compounds namely nocardamine, dehydroxynocardamine, desmethylenylnocardamine, ferrioxamine E, adenosine, riboflavin,(More)
Appalachian active coal fire sites were selected for the isolation of bacterial strains belonging to the class actinobacteria. A comparison of high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (HRESIMS) and ultraviolet (UV) absorption profiles from isolate extracts to natural product databases suggested Streptomyces sp. RM-4-15 to produce unique(More)
Two new cyclopeptides, mullinamides A [cyclo-(-L-Gly-L-Glu-L-Val-L-Ile-L-Pro-)] and B [cyclo-(-L-Glu-L-Met-L-Pro-)] were isolated from the crude extract of terrestrial Streptomyces sp. RM-27-46 along with the three known cyclopeptides surugamide A [cyclo-(-L-Ile-D-Ile-L-Lys-L-Ile-D-Phe-D-Leu-L-Ile-D-Ala-)], cyclo-(-L-Pro-L-Phe-) and cyclo-(-L-Pro-L-Leu-).(More)
The isolation and structural elucidation of a new tetracyclic polyketide (ruthmycin) from Streptomyces sp. RM-4-15, a bacteria isolated near thermal vents from the Ruth Mullins underground coal mine fire in eastern Kentucky, is reported. In comparison to the well-established frenolicin core scaffold, ruthmycin possesses an unprecedented signature C3 bridge(More)
Four new Y-type actinomycin analogues named Y6-Y9 (1-4) were isolated and characterized from the scale-up fermentation of the Streptomyces sp. strain Gö-GS12, as well as actinomycin Zp (5), which was, for the first time, isolated as a natural product. Structures of the new compounds were elucidated by the cumulative analyses of NMR spectroscopy and HRMS.(More)
