In order to develop potential glucosamine-6-phosphate synthase inhibitors and anti-fungal agents, twenty five oleanolic acid oxime esters were synthesized in an efficient way. The structures of the new compounds were confirmed by MS, HRMS, 1H-NMR and 13C-NMR. Preliminary studies based on means of the Elson-Morgan method indicated that many compounds(More)
A series of bottromycin antibiotics have been isolated and identified from Streptomyces bottropensis strain ATCC 25435. Here, a draft genome sequence of S. bottropensis ATCC 25435 is presented. The genome carries an intact biosynthetic gene cluster for bottromycin antibiotics, which provides insight into the combinatorial biosynthesis of bottromycin(More)
In order to develop potential anti-fungal agents, seven glycoconjugates composed of α-L-rhamnose, 6-deoxy-α-L-talose, β-D-galactose, α-D-mannose, β-D-xylose-(1→4)-6-deoxy-α-L-talose, β-D-galactose-(1→4)-α-L-rhamnose, β-D-galactose-(1→3)-β-D-xylose-(1→4)-6-deoxy-α-L-talose as the glycone and oleanolic acid as the aglycone were synthesized in an efficient and(More)
BACKGROUND Enzymatic biodiesel production by transesterification in solvent media has been investigated intensively, but glycerol, as a by-product, could block the immobilized enzyme and excess n-hexane, as a solution aid, would reduce the productivity of the enzyme. Esterification, a solvent-free and no-glycerol-release system for biodiesel production, has(More)
A highly efficient, regioselective method for the direct 2,3-O-isopropylidenation of α-D-mannopyranosides is reported. Treatment of various α-D-mannopyranosides with 0.12 equiv of the TsOH·H2O and 2-methoxypropene at 70 °C gave 2,3-O-isopropylidene-α-D-mannopyranosides directly in 80%~90% yields. Based on this method, a 3,6-branched α-D-mannosyl(More)
Short branched-chain acyl-CoAs are important building blocks for a wide variety of pharmaceutically valuable natural products. Escherichia coli has been used as a heterologous host for the production of a variety of natural compounds for many years. In the current study, we engineered synthesis of isobutyryl-CoA and isovaleryl-CoA from glucose in E. coli by(More)
