Herquline A, produced by Penicillium herquei FKI-7215, exhibits anti-influenza virus properties
Herquline A inhibited replication of influenza virus A/PR/8/34 strain in a dose-dependent manner without exhibiting cytotoxicity against several human cell lines and did not inhibit the viral neuraminidase.
1-Methoxypyrrole-2-carboxamide-A new pyrrole compound isolated from Streptomyces griseocarneus SWW368.
A new pyrrole compound, 1-methoxypyrrole-2-carboxamide, was obtained from a culture broth of Streptomyces griseocarneus SWW368, which was isolated from the rhizospheric soil under a Para rubber tree
Decatamariic acid, a new mitochondrial respiration inhibitor discovered by pesticidal screening using drug-sensitive Saccharomyces cerevisiae
A new decalin, decatamariic acid, was isolated from a cultured broth of the fungus Aspergillus tamarii FKI-6817 and elicited ~50% inhibition of the ATP production in mitochondria isolated from wild-type Saccharomyces cerevisiae without affecting the activities of respiratory enzymes.
Clonocoprogens A, B and C, new antimalarial coprogens from the Okinawan fungus Clonostachys compactiuscula FKR-0021
Three new antimalarial compounds, clonocoprogens A, B, and C, were isolated from the static culture of an Okinawan fungus, Clonostachys compactiuscula FKR-0021, and showed moderate antimalaria activity against chloroquine-sensitive and chloroquin-resistant Plasmodium falciparum strains.
Trichopolyn VI: a new peptaibol insecticidal compound discovered using a recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae screening system.
In the course of searching for insecticides from soil microorganisms, we found that a fermentation broth of the fungus, Trichoderma brevicompactum FKI-6324, produced Trichopolyn VI, a new peptaibol,
Ascosteroside D, a new mitochondrial respiration inhibitor discovered by pesticidal screening using insect ADP/ATP carrier protein-expressing Saccharomyces cerevisiae
A new lanostane-type triterpenoid was isolated from a fungus, Aspergillus sp.
Total Syntheses and Chemical Biology Studies of Hymeglusin and Fusarilactone A, Novel Circumventors of β-Lactam Drug Resistance in Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
The concise total syntheses of a series of natural products enabled determination of the absolute configuration of fusarilactone A and provided structure-activity relationship information and found that this enzyme was dose-dependently inhibited by hymeglusin.
