Amidepsines, inhibitors of diacylglycerol acyltransferase produced by Humicola sp. FO-2942. I. Production, isolation and biological properties.

Humicola sp. FO-2942, a soil isolate, was found to produce a series of new inhibitors of diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT). Three active compounds, designated amidepsines A, B and C, were isolated from the fermentation broth of the producing strain by solvent extraction, silica gel column chromatography, ODS column chromatography and HPLC. Amidepsines… CONTINUE READING
