The goal of this study was to increase ε-Poly-L-Lysine (ε-PL) production by Streptomyces sp. M-Z18 through optimization of the culture medium. Glycerol, (NH4)2SO4 and K2HPO4 were the key factors in the fermentation according to the results obtained from the Plackett-Burman experimental design. The optimal concentration of the three factors was further(More)
ε-poly-l-lysine (ε-PL) is a homo-poly-amino acid of l-lysine which is used as a safe food preservative. The productivity of ε-PL in currently reported wild type strains is low. This study was aimed at finding novel ε-PL producing strains with higher productivity and new fermentative characters. An improved detection method was employed using methylene blue(More)
Penicillipyrones A (1) and B (2), two novel meroterpenoids, were isolated from the marine-derived fungus Penicillium sp. On the basis of the results of combined spectroscopic analyses, these compounds were structurally elucidated to be sesquiterpene γ-pyrones from a new skeletal class derived from a unique linkage pattern between the drimane sesquiterpene(More)
Herqueiazole (1), herqueioxazole (2), and herqueidiketal (3), polyaromatic metabolites with a novel skeletal class, were isolated from the marine-derived fungus Penicillium sp. Based on the combined spectroscopic analyses, the structures of 1 and 2 were determined to be the first examples of pyrrole- and oxazole-containing phenalenone compounds,(More)
Fumiquinazoline S (1), a new quinazoline-containing alkaloid, and the known fumiquinazolines F (6) and L (7) of the same structural class were isolated from the solid-substrate culture of an Aspergillus sp. fungus collected from marine-submerged wood. In addition, isochaetominines A-C (2-4) and 14-epi-isochaetominine C (5), new alkaloids possessing an(More)
A method based on HPLC with diode array detector (DAD) and electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) was established for the simultaneous determination of 5-HMF and its derivatives, including a new 5-HMF derivative, in Rehmanniae radix preparata. Validation parameters, such as linearity, limit of detection, limit of quantification, recovery,(More)
Terrelumamides A (1) and B (2), two new lumazine-containing peptides, were isolated from the culture broth of the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus terreus. From the results of combined spectroscopic and chemical analyses, the structures of these compounds were determined to be linear assemblies of 1-methyllumazine-6-carboxylic acid, an amino acid residue(More)
Four new cytotoxic diterpenoid pseudodimers (2-5), along with a previously reported one, gukulenin A (1), were isolated from the marine sponge Phorbas gukhulensis collected off the coast of Gagu-do, Korea. These novel compounds, designated gukulenins C-F (2-5), were determined by extensive spectroscopic analyses to be pseudodimers of the gagunins, like(More)
Wide spread of printers and computers have led to increasing use of print documents in people’s common life. While mass print, automatic print quality evaluation is necessary in the fast print process to avoid the quality defect immediately when it appears. Also, in many cases print materials are direct accessories to many criminal and terrorist acts, for(More)
A method based on HPLC coupled with an evaporative light scattering detection and ESI quadrupole TOF MS was established for the quantification and identification of phenolics and triterpene saponins in Kalopanacis Cortex using a gradient elution of acetonitrile with 0.1% formic acid and water with 0.1% formic acid on an RP C18 column (4.6 × 250 mm, 5 μm).(More)
