Fungal glycosides: Structure and biological function
The antimicrobial effects of these fungal glycosides indicate that these metabolites could be employed as natural preservatives in food in order to abolish or control the growth of pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms. Expand
Benzannulated spiroketal natural products: isolation, biological activity, biosynthesis, and total synthesis.
This review will serve as an update of the 2009 review and include all known families of benzannulated spiroketals, detailing their isolation and biological activity where relevant and endeavours towards their total synthesis will be discussed. Expand
Spiroketal Phthalane C-Glycosides: Synthesis of Papulacandins and SGLT2 Inhibitors
Spiroketals are important structural motifs found in diverse natural products, many of which display unique biological activity. Among them, spiroketal phthalane C-glycosides, in which a phthalaneExpand
Potentiality and Synthesis of O- and N-Heterocycles: Pd-Catalyzed Cyclocarbonylative Sonogashira Coupling as a Valuable Route to Phthalans, Isochromans, and Isoindolines
Oxygen and nitrogen heterocycle systems are found in a vast number of natural substrates and biologically active molecules. In particular, phthalan, isochroman, and isoindoline scaffolds are presentExpand
Fungal Metabolites for the Control of Biofilm Infections
The broad diversity of bioactive compounds from fungi, their activities against various pathogens, and the multi-target trait of some molecules are promising aspects of fungal secondary metabolites. Expand
Chapter 4 - Total Synthesis of Papulacandin D
A total synthesis of the antifungal agent papulacandin D is described. The molecule is representative of a large class of C−arylglycosides that exhibit significant antifungal activity. The syntheticExpand
Synthesis and antifungal properties of papulacandin derivatives
Derivatives of an antifungal agent that targets the β-(1,3)-D-glucan synthase, papulacandin D, were synthesized and tested for activity, with moderate biological activity observed for the derivatives with a side chain based on palmitic acid and linoleic acid. Expand
Total Synthesis of (+)-Papulacandin D.
A critical element in the successful execution of the synthesis of (+)-papulacandin D was the development of a suitable protecting group strategy that satisfied a number of stringent criteria. Expand
Astonishing diversity of natural surfactants: 2. Polyether glycosidic ionophores and macrocyclic glycosides
More than 300 interesting and unusual natural surfactants are described in this review article, including their chemical structures and biological activities. Expand


A whole-cell Candida albicans assay for the detection of inhibitors towards fungal cell wall synthesis and assembly.
Sorbitol protection and cell morphology were indicators of novel antifungal agents from natural product extracts and pure compounds. Expand
Aselacins, novel compounds that inhibit binding of endothelin to its receptor. I. The producing organism, fermentation and biological activity.
A radioligand test to detect inhibitors of endothelin-1 binding to its receptors in bovine atrial and porcine cerebral membranes was used to screen fungal metabolites from stationary fermentations, leading to the discovery of aselacins A, B and C. Expand
Characterization of (1,3)-beta-glucan synthase in Candida albicans: microsomal assay from the yeast or mycelial morphological forms and a permeabilized whole-cell assay.
The addition of detergent during mechanical breakage of yeast cells dramatically improved glucan synthase stability and activity, and Brij-35 significantly stabilized the enzyme, yielding a half-life of 5.6 d at 4 degrees C, compared with 0.9 d without detergent. Expand
Asperlicin, a novel non-peptidal cholecystokinin antagonist from Aspergillus alliaceus. Fermentation, isolation and biological properties.
The fermentation and isolation of a new, non-peptide cholecystokinin antagonist, asperlicin, produced by Aspergillus alliaceus is described. The potent and specific interaction of asperlicin withExpand
Papulacandins, a new family of antibiotics with antifungal activity, I. Fermentation, isolation, chemical and biological characterization of papulacandins A, B, C, D and E.
Papulacandin, a new antibiotic complex, active against Candida albicans and several other yeasts, was isolated from a strain of Papularia sphaerosperma and assigned the formula of C47H64O17. Expand
