A sesquiterpene antibiotic was isolated from the dried fruiting body of Dictyophora indusiata (Vent: Pers.) Fischer by solvent extraction and column chromatography and identified as albaflavenone by FTIR, GC-MS, HR-FIMS and NMR spectra. The content of albaflavenone in the dried fruiting body of Dictyophora indusiata (Vent: Pers.) Fischer (the content of water was 15.63%) was quantified by GC through an external standard method to be about 0.0063%. The compound isolated has an earthy, camphor…

Albaflavenone, a sesquiterpene ketone with a zizaene skeleton produced by a streptomycete with a new rope morphology.
A novel antibiotic alpha,beta-unsaturated sesquiterpene ketone, albaflavenone with a zizaene skeleton was isolated from a morphologically novel, highly odorous Streptomyces species which was
Biosynthesis of the Sesquiterpene Antibiotic Albaflavenone in Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2)*
The combined results establish for the first time the presence of albaflavenone in S. coelicolor and clearly demonstrate that the biosynthesis of this antibiotic involves the coupled action of epi-isozizaene synthase and CYP170A1.
Biosynthesis of the sesquiterpene antibiotic albaflavenone in Streptomyces coelicolor. Mechanism and stereochemistry of the enzymatic formation of epi-isozizaene.
New insights into the mechanism and the role of the enzyme came from site-directed mutagenesis of active site residues in two universally conserved Mg(2+)-binding domains and the identification of six minor sesquiterpene products 9-13 and 15 produced by the wild-type and mutant proteins.
Characterization of a silent sesquiterpenoid biosynthetic pathway in Streptomyces avermitilis controlling epi‐isozizaene albaflavenone biosynthesis and isolation of a new oxidized epi‐isozizaene metabolite
The genome‐sequenced, Gram‐positive bacterium Streptomyces avermitilis harbours an orthologue of the previously identified epi‐isozizaene synthase, which is translationally coupled with the downstream sav3031 gene encoding the cytochrome P450 CYP170A2 analogous to SCO5223 (CYP170A1) of S. coelicolor A3(2), which exhibits a similar translation coupling.
Structural characterization, chain conformation, and morphology of a beta-(1-->3)-D-glucan isolated from the fruiting body of Dictyophora indusiata.
A water-soluble glucan, namely, PD3, was isolated from the fruiting body of Dictyophora indusiata as the method reported previously and its chemical structure was characterized by GC, FTIR, and (13)C NMR, suggesting that PD3 exists as a triple helical chain in water.
Volatile Organic Metabolites from Selected Streptomyces Strains
Semi-quantitative data and the identity or mass spectroscopic data are reported for 120 volatile metabolites from 26 selected Streptomyces isolates grown on suitable media. Approximately half of the
