Structures of ADP-ribosylated rifampicin and its metabolite: intermediates of rifampicin-ribosylation by Mycobacterium smegmatis DSM43756.

23-(O-ADP-Ribosyl)rifampicin [RIP-TAs (3, Na+ form), RIP-TAf (4, H+ form)] was obtained as an intermediate in the conversion process of rifampicin (1) to RIP-Mb (2) that is mediated by cell homogenates of Mycobacterium smegmatis DSM43756 or of Escherichia coli carrying a mycobacterial mono(ADP-ribosyl) transferase gene, in the presence of NADH. 23-[O-(5… (More)
