Actinoidin A2, a novel glycopeptide: production, preparative HPLC separation and characterization.

An unidentified Nocardia sp. (SK&F-AAJ-193) was isolated and found to produce actinoidin A and a novel analog which we have named actinoidin A2. This new glycopeptide antibiotic differs from actinoidin A by the presence of rhamnose instead of acosamine. This analog was isolated using Dianion HP-20 resin followed by a specific glycopeptide affinity column… CONTINUE READING
