Alchivemycin A, a bioactive polycyclic polyketide with an unprecedented skeleton from Streptomyces sp.

Alchivemycin A, a novel polycyclic polyketide, was isolated from the culture extract of a plant-derived actinomycete Streptomyces sp. The structure and relative configuration were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis and X-ray crystallography, and the absolute configuration was determined by a (1)H NMR anisotropy method using MPA ester derivatization. The… CONTINUE READING
