Effect of copper sulfate on biosynthesis of FR-008/Candicidin complex production in Streptomyces sp.

It is demonstrated that the copper ion played a crucial role in antibiotic biosynthesis and was understood to be related to the key enzyme activities and the gene transcriptional levels.

Summary The water-soluble fraction of Candicidin has been shown to have strong anti-fungal activity in vitro against the major fungus pathogens of man with the exception of C. immitis and the

Candicidin, A New Antifungal Antibiotic

A group of 197 cultures of actinomycetes were tested for their antibiotic activity against Cerastostomella ulmi and yielded a strain of Streptomyces griseus which produced an an antibiotic-resistant strain.

Candicidin and other polyenic antifungal antibiotics.

Nystatin and pimaricin show the least in vitro activity against fungi, while trichomycin and candicidin are the most active.
