Ustilagic acid is a water-insoluble glycolipid produced by Ustilago may&, the corn smut fungus. It was discovered by Haskins (l), and its structure was elucidated by Lemieux, Thorn, and Bauer (2, 3). Pilot plant quantities are being produced in Japan.’ Ustilagic acid was shown to be a mixture of acylated derivatives of /I-n-cellobiosyl-15u, l&dihydroxy-n-hexadecanoic acid (glucoustilic acid A) and @-D-cellobiosyl-2n, 15~~ 16-trihydroxy-n-hexadecanoic acid (glucoustilic acid B).
