Characterization of a novel oxidase from Thelonectria discophora SANK 18292 involved in nectrisine biosynthesis


A fungus, Thelonectria discophora SANK 18292 (JCM 30947), produces nectrisine that has a nitrogen-containing heterocyclic 5-membered ring acting as a glycosidase inhibitor. Our previous study showed the possibility that 4-amino-4-deoxyarabinitol was enzymatically converted to nectrisine but the enzyme was not known. In order to characterize the enzyme… (More)
