Four new polycyclic antibiotics, citreamicin θ A (1), citreamicin θ B (2), citreaglycon A (3), and dehydrocitreaglycon A (4), were isolated from marine-derived Streptomyces caelestis. The structures of these compounds were elucidated by 1D and 2D NMR spectra. All four compounds displayed antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus haemolyticus,(More)
The fluorinated surfactant sodium perfluorooctanoate (SPFO) could bind onto ubiquitin (UBQ) and induce the unfolding of UBQ. By using (15)N-edited heteronuclear single-quantum coherence (HSQC) NMR and (19)F NMR to monitor (15)N-labeled UBQ and SPFO, respectively, the binding sites and the aggregation process of SPFO on UBQ at various SPFO concentrations(More)
Citreamicins, members of the polycyclic xanthone family, are promising antitumor agents that are produced by Streptomyces species. Two diastereomers, citreamicin ε A (1) and B (2), were isolated from a marine-derived Streptomyces species. The relative configurations of these two diastereomers were determined using NMR spectroscopy and successful(More)
Eleven new depsides-thielavins W-Z (1-4) and thielavins Z₁-Z₇ (5-11)-and also four known thielavins-A, H, J, and K (12-15)-were isolated from the ethyl acetate extract of a marine-derived fungal strain Thielavia sp UST030930-004. All of these compounds were evaluated for antifouling activity against cyprids of the barnacle Balanus (=Amphibalanus)(More)
