A natural, single-residue substitution yields a less active peptaibiotic: the structure of bergofungin A at atomic resolution.
The crystal structure of bergofungin A has been determined and refined to 0.84 Å resolution, and there are differences in the intramolecular hydrogen-bonding scheme of samarosporin I, but the overall folding is very similar for both peptaibols, namely 310-helicals at the termini and α-helical in the middle of the molecules.
Genomic and Metabolomic Analyses of the Marine Fungus Emericellopsis cladophorae: Insights into Saltwater Adaptability Mechanisms and Its Biosynthetic Potential
The genus Emericellopsis is found in terrestrial, but mainly in marine, environments with a worldwide distribution. Although Emericellopsis has been recognized as an important source of bioactive
The microbial role in the control of phytopathogens—an alternative to agrochemicals
In this environment, several species of fungi and bacteria act as biocontrol agents, weakening the development of plantation enemies through antibiosis, nutrient competition, predation, parasitism, interference with molecular signaling, and induction of systemic resistance in plants.
A Novel Lipopeptaibol Emericellipsin A with Antimicrobial and Antitumor Activity Produced by the Extremophilic Fungus Emericellopsis alkalina
A novel antibiotic peptide is isolated from the culture medium of Emericellopsis alkalina that exhibited a strong antifungal effect against the yeast Candida albicans, the mold fungus Aspergillus niger, and human pathogen clinical isolates and exhibited antimicrobial activity against some Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
How are 1,2,3-triazoles accommodated in helical secondary structures?
Results showed that Tz insertions impair helical secondary structures, from minor structural perturbation of the helix to partial disorder.
Chilenopeptins A and B, Peptaibols from the Chilean Sepedonium aff. chalcipori KSH 883.
A taxonomic study of the strain using molecular data of the ITS, EF1-α, and RPB2 barcoding genes confirmed the position of the isolated strain within the S. chalcipori clade, but also suggested the separation of this clade into three different species.
Development and validation of LC-MS methods for peptaibol quantification in fungal extracts according to their lengths.
The development and validation of quantification LC/ESI-TI-MS methods using different standards of peptaibols was performed in order to quantify all of them, in a single analysis, in Trichoderma crude extracts according to their chain length.
Isolation and Total Synthesis of Albu­peptins A–D: 11-Residue Peptaibols from the Fungus Gliocladium album
Four new 11-mer peptaibols, named albupeptins A–D (1–4), were isolated from cultures of the fungus Gliocladium album. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy, as


Chrysospermins, new peptaibol antibiotics from Apiocrea chrysosperma Ap101.
Four new members of peptaibol antibiotics were isolated from the mycelium of Apiocrea chrysosperma Ap101 by solvent extraction, silica gel chromatography and preparative recycling HPLC, showing antibacterial and antifungal activity and induce pigment formation by the fungus Phoma destructiva.
Fungal metabolites. XV. Primary structures of antibiotic peptides, hypelcins B-I, B-II, B-III, B-IV and B-V, from Hypocrea peltata. Application of electrospray mass spectrometry and electrospray mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry.
Hypelcin B is a mixture of antibiotic peptides produced by Hypocrea peltata purified by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography and the amino acid sequences of these peptides were determined by electrospray mass spectrometry and electrosPRay mass Spectrometry/mass spectromaetry.

Isolation and structural characterization of polypeptide antibiotics of the peptaibol class by high-performance liquid chromatography with field desorption and fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry
Abstract A number of polypeptide antibiotics of the peptaibol class, i.e., trichotoxin, alamethicin, suzukacillin, hypelcin and paracelsin, have been separated into components and isolated by
Simplified, accurate method for antibiotic assay of clinical specimens.
Serum specimens are tested directly rather than diluting them to a narrow range of antibiotic concentrations, possible because of a procedure for calculations that recognizes the curvilinear relationship between zone sizes and antibiotic concentrations.
