A major glycolipid was isolated from the well characterized Saccharopolyspora species, S. hirsuta, S. rectivirgula, S. erythraea and one not completely identified strain (Saccharopolyspora sp.). On the basis of sugar and methylation analysis, specific enzymatic and chemical degradations of the carbohydrate moiety, its FAB mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy characterizations, the carbohydrate part was shown to be the glycerol linked dimannoside alpha-D-Manp-(1-->3)-alpha-D-Manp-(1-->1/3)Gro… CONTINUE READING
