Bioactive Natural Products in Actinobacteria Isolated in Rainwater From Storm Clouds Transported by Western Winds in Spain
TLDR
The findings suggest that over time, through samples collected from different precipitation events, and space, in different sampling places, the authors can have access to a great diversity of Actinobacteria producing an extraordinary reservoir of bioactive natural products, from remote and very distant origins, thus highlighting the atmosphere as a contrasted source for the discovery of novel compounds of relevance in medicine and biotechnology.
Blend of Essential Oils Supplemented Alone or Combined with Exogenous Amylase Compared with Virginiamycin Supplementation on Finishing Lambs: Performance, Dietary Energetics, Carcass Traits, and Nutrient Digestion
TLDR
Dietary supplementation of finishing lambs with essential oils alone, or combined with exogenous enzymes, improved dietary energy utilization and meat production in a manner comparable to that of the antibiotic virginiamycin.
Effects of grain adaptation programs and antimicrobial feed additives on performance and nutrient digestibility of Bos indicus cattle fed whole shelled corn
Abstract Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of feed additives [monensin (MON); 30 mg/kg of dry matter (DM), and virginiamycin (VM); 25 mg/kg DM] and grain adaptation programs
Copper-Catalyzed Vicinal Chloro-thiolation of Alkynes with Sulfonyl Chlorides.
TLDR
A copper-catalyzed vicinal chloro-thiolation of alkynes with inexpensive and diversified sulfonyl chlorides RSO2Cl (R = aryl, alkyl) has been developed and preliminary mechanistic investigations revealed a plausible radical process involving a sulfur-centered radical intermediate via copper-mediated homolysis of the S-Cl bond.
Multicomponent Synthesis of Diversified Chromeno [3, 2-d]oxazoles.
TLDR
A practical and efficient synthetic procedure to novel chromeno[3,2-d]oxazoles through a one-pot sequential multistep process that affords a wide range of the chromenooxazole scaffolds.

TLDR
This work presents a new method for quantifying the activity of Bacteriophage and Bacterial DNA in the presence of D-Sorbitol Dehydrogenase, which has shown the ability to alter the status of B. subtilis to Bacteria 2C.

TLDR
It is concluded that peptide chain formation is the primary target of virginia-mycins M and S (hence their synergistic antibiotic activity), that translation—not transcription—is prevented by these inhibitors, and that the alterations of nucleic acid metabolism are due to the halt of protein synthesis.
Inhibition of Protein Synthesis by Polypeptide Antibiotics I. Inhibition in Intact Bacteria
  • H. Ennis
  • Biology, Chemistry
    Journal of bacteriology
  • 1965
TLDR
The mechanism of inhibition of growth of cells by the polypeptide antibiotics of the PA 114, vernamycin, and streptogramin complexes was studied and mutants resistant to one of the antibiotics were resistant to all of the group and, in addition, wereresistant to erythromycin and oleandomycin.
The Streptogramin Family of Antibiotics
TLDR
Of the single components of the streptogramin family, viridogrisein is the most active and consequently all the complex antibiotics of this family have a markedly higher activity than the individual components.
The Growth-Promoting Action of Virginiamycin and its Influence on the Crop Flora in Chickens
TLDR
It is found that antibiotics do not stimulate growth in germ-free animals, whereas Matterson and Singsen (1951) maintain that bacitracin is a potent growth stimulant, although it is not absorbed from the intestine.

TLDR
This investigation has shown that the polypeptide antibiotics of the PA 114, vernamycin, and streptogramin complexes are potent inhibitors of the synthetic polynucleotide-stimulated incorporation of amino acids into hot trichloroacetic acid-insoluble peptide.
