Aureolic acid group compounds, such as chromomycin A3(CHM) and mithramycin (MIT), are known as antitumor drugs. Recently we isolated a novel aureolic acid group antitumor drug, UCH9, from Streptomyces sp. The chemical structure of UCH9 is unique in that mono- (A ring) and tetrasaccharide (B-E rings) segments and a longer hydrophobic sidechain are attached(More)
