Carbazomycins G (I) and H (II), new congeners of the carbazomycin complex, have been isolated from the culture broth of Streptoverticillium ehimense. They have proved to contain a unique quinol moiety in the molecule. Their structures have been elucidated by mass and NMR spectrometries and X-ray crystallographic analysis. Carbazomycin G showed moderate antifungal activity against Trichophyton species.

Biosynthesis of carbazomycin B. II. Origin of the whole carbon skeleton.
The carbazomycins were isolated from Streptoverticillium ehimense H 1051 MY10 as the first antibiotics containing a carbazole nucleus and they mainly inhibit the growth of phytopathogenic fungi3'40.Expand
A Novel Total Synthesis of Antibiotic Carbazole Alkaloid Carbazomycin G
Abstract A total synthesis of carbazomycin G ( 1 ) has been newly completed in seven steps. The 1,3-dioxygenated carbazole ( 4 ) via the 3-methoxy-1-methoxymethyloxycarbazole ( 11 ) as a syntheticExpand
Palladium-catalyzed total synthesis of the antibiotic carbazole alkaloids carbazomycin G and H1
A highly efficient palladium-catalyzed synthesis affords carbazole-1,4-quinones which can be transformed directly into the carbazomycins G and H and are shown to represent precursors for severalExpand

New antibiotics, carbazomycins A and B. I. Fermentation, extraction, purification and physico-chemical and biological properties.
An unidentified Streptomyces, designated as Strain H 1051-MY 10, was proved to produce viomycin and two new antibiotics, which inhibited the growth of phytophathogenic fungi and further showed weak antibacterial and antiyeast activities. Expand
New antibiotics, carbazomycins A and B. III. Taxonomy and biosynthesis.
The carbazomycin-producing microorganism, strain H 1051-MY 10, was determined to a strain of Streptoverticillium ehimense and neither of the labeled carbons, [1-14C]tryptophan nor [2,3-13C]propionic acid, was detected in the antibiotic, and a progenitor of the C-2 and C-11 moiety of the antibiotic has not been determined.
