A new arylsulfatase designated Es-1, which desulfated etoposide 4'-sulfate and p-nitrophenyl sulfate, was isolated from Streptomyces griseorubiginosus S980-14 and purified to protein homogeneity by ammonium sulfate fractionation, ion exchange column chromatography, and chromatofocusing. The enzyme was active in monomeric form with an approximate molecular… (More)
Antibiotics PS-6 and PS-7 which are shown to be 5R,6R-3-(2-acetamido)ethylthio-6-isopropyl-7-oxo-1-azabicyclo[3.2.0]hept-2-ene- 2-carboxylic acid and 5R,6R-3-(E)-(2-acetamido) vinylthio-6-ethyl-7-oxo-1-azabicyclo[3.2.0]hept-2-ene-2-carboxylic acid respectively, are new beta-lactam compounds isolated from fermentation broths of Streptomyces cremeus subsp.… (More)
Chronic treatment with naloxone (Nx) or naltrexone (Ntx) induces paradoxical analgesia. In the present study, the effects of chronic treatment with opioid receptor antagonists, such as nor-binaltorphimine (nor-BNI) for kappa and naltrindole (NTI) for delta receptors, on analgesic response using the hot plate test and on morphine physical dependence in rats… (More)
Based on the structure-activity relationship data of BMY-28864 and related pradimicin derivatives, the calcium salt-forming ability and the D-mannopyranoside-specific visible absorption maximum shift of BMY-28864 were analysed in the ternary complex formation of BMY-28864 with D-mannopyranoside and calcium. The free C-18 carboxyl group of BMY-28864 was… (More)
Streptomyces sp. T109-3 arylsulfatase (Es-2), which desulfated p-nitrophenyl sulfate as well as etoposide 4'-sulfate, was purified to protein homogeneity by sulfated cellulose affinity and DEAE-cellulose column chromatographies. Es-2 required calcium for enzyme activity and was severely inhibited by SH and chelating reagents. Comparative characterization… (More)
Terpestacin, a new antibiotic which inhibits syncytium formation, was isolated from Arthrinium sp. FA1744 (ATCC 74132). The structure of terpestacin was elucidated as a bicyclic sesterterpene on the basis of spectroscopic data and chemical derivatization.
