Novel glycine containing glucolipids from the alkane using bacterium Alcanivorax borkumensis.

Abstract

The polar lipids from the hydrocarbon using and biosurfactant-producing bacterium Alcanivorax borkumensis were isolated and identified by mass spectrometry (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. The biosurfactant produced by this species is an anionic glucose lipid with a tetrameric oxyacyl side chain. The glycolipids extracted from the… (More)
