A9145 is a new water-soluble antifungal antibiotic produced by a strain of Streptomyces griseolus (NRRL 3739). This basic antibiotic has an apparent molecular weight of about 510, contains adenine and a possible sugar moiety, and forms crystalline organic and inorganic salts. A9145 is active against Candida species, Saccharomyces pastorianus, plant disease fungi, and Trypanosoma species. It has an LD50 (subcutaneous) of 185 mg/kg in mice. 
Studies on neplanocin A, new antitumor antibiotic. I. Producing organism, isolation and characterization.
TLDR
Neplanocin A has cytotoxicity against L5178Y cells in culture and showed a remarkable effect on the life prolongation of mice infected with L1210 leukemia. Expand
A9145, a new adenine-containing antifungal antibiotic. II. Biological activity.
TLDR
A combination of amphotericin B and A9145 caused a possible synergistic effect against C. albicans in vitro and an additive effect in vivo, and showed weak in vitro activity against Candida al bicans in SABOURAUD'S medium, but was strongly inhibitory in a chemically defined medium. Expand
Sinefungin, a potent inhibitor or S-adenosylmethionine: protein O-methyltransferase.
TLDR
Sinefungin and a related metabolite, A9145C, which are antifungal antibiotics isolated from Streptomyces griseolus, exhibit inhibitory activity which are equal to or greater than S-adenosylhomocysteine, the endogenous inhibitor of this methyltransferase. Expand
Taxonomic study and fermentation of producing organism and antimicrobial activity of mildiomycin.
TLDR
A taxonomic study of strain B-98891, which produced an antibiotic effective against powdery mildew of barley, identified it as Streptoverticillium rimofaciens, and Rhodotorula rubra IFO 0907 was selected as the test organism for in vitro assay of mildiomycin. Expand
Inhibition of cyclopropane fatty acid synthase by sinefungin and A9145C.
Abstract Sinefungin and A9145C, antifungal antibiotic analogs of S-adeno-sylmethionine isolated from Streptomyces , griseolus , have been found to be very effective in , vitro inhibitors ofExpand
Ergosterol Biosynthesis Inhibitors
A number of possible biochemical approaches can be adopted in search of new antifungals. Potential targets can be selected that are present in the fungus but not in the host, or present in bothExpand
Recent advances in the biosynthesis of nucleoside antibiotics
TLDR
This review covering 2009–2019 focuses on recent advances in the biosynthesis of nucleoside antibiotics. Expand
Identification of ornithine-lactam converted from arginine in Streptomyces incarnatus NRRL8089
TLDR
Results indicated that S. incarnatus has an enzyme that converts arginine to ornithine- lactam, and suggested that it may be relevant to sinefungin biosynthesis. Expand
Regulation of sinefungin biosynthesis by the wild-type strain and mutants of Streptomyces incarnatus
TLDR
Results show that the ornithine part of the molecule originates from arginine, liberated by either anabolic or catabolic processes. Expand
Antileishmanial Effect of Sinefungin and its Derivatives

A COBALT-CONTAINING MEDIUM FOR SPORULATION OF STREPTOMYCES SPECIES
TLDR
Whether the neurotoxic substance present in S. aureus filtrates is identical to gastroenterotoxin has not been established, but the symptomatology of staphylococcal food poisoning strongly suggests involvement of the nervous system. Expand
A9145, a New Adenine-Containing Antifungal Antibiotic: Fermentation
TLDR
Although glucose, fructose, glucose polymers, and some long-chain fatty acid methyl esters supported biosynthesis, oils were superior, with cottonseed oil being preferred, and several ions and salts were stimulatory. Expand
