Kanglemycin C (K-C) is a new immunosuppressant isolated from the culture broth of Nocardia mediterranei var. kanglensis 1747-64. To improve the productivity of K-C and to study the biological effects of space flight on its producing strain, spores from five K-C producing strains (U-10, U-15, U-7, M-13, gamma-33) mutated from the wild strain N. mediterranei(More)
We have isolated an extraordinary pentapeptide, called 4862F, from the culture broth of Streptomyces albosporus I03A-04862 by Diaion HP-20 macroporous adsorbent resin column, ODS-A and Sephadex LH-20 chromatography, followed by preparative HPLC. This peptide shows inhibitory activity against HIV-1 protease. The structure was elucidated by spectroscopic(More)
A novel natural geldanamycin analogue was discovered in Streptomyces hygroscopicus 17997. Its 4,5-dihydro form was also identified in the gdmP gene disruption mutant of Streptomyces hygroscopicus 17997. The structures of the two compounds were determined to be 19-[(1'S,4'R)-4'-hydroxy-1'-methoxy-2'-oxopentyl]geldanamycin (1) and(More)
