Streptomyces ambofaciens synthesizes spiramycin, a 16-membered macrolide antibiotic used in human medicine. The spiramycin molecule consists of a polyketide lactone ring (platenolide) synthesized by a type I polyketide synthase, to which three deoxyhexoses (mycaminose, forosamine, and mycarose) are attached successively in this order. These sugars are(More)
The determination of 6-, 8-, 10-gingerol, and 6-shogaol in dried ginger (Zingiber officinale) and in the dried aqueous extract of ginger is reported. This is the first study to report a validated method for the determination of these 4 analytes. Several extraction solvents and methods were examined, and the optimum combination was determined. The samples(More)
The variability of the sexual incompatibility genes of Agrocybe aegerita was investigated in the homokaryotic progeny of 13 wild dikaryotic strains from five distinct European geographic origins. Results of mating tests allowed identification of 18 A alleles and 16 B alleles out of a possible 26 different alleles for each in the sample. The determination(More)
A validated analytical method is described for the determination of honokiol and magnolol in Hou Po (Magnolia officinalis) as the dried raw herb and the commercially prepared dried aqueous extract. The samples were extracted with methanol by the Soxhlet method, and the extract was analyzed by liquid chromatography with photodiode array (LC/PDA) detection(More)
