Fungi are known as producers of many important bioactive compounds, including clinical medicines and research reagents. Certain fruit bodies of fungi are used as traditional medicines especially in Asian area.1–3 During our screening for new metabolites from fungi, four new diphenolic compounds, named (±)-tylopilusin A and (±)tylopilusin B, were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Tylopilus eximinus.4 Continuing precise analysis of the metabolites from the fungus, one new diphenolic congener…

Secondary Metabolites from Higher Fungi.
This chapter gives a comprehensive overview of the secondary metabolites from higher fungi, with 765 references highlighting the isolation, structure elucidation, biological activities, chemical syntheses, and biosynthesis of pigments, nitrogen-containing compounds, and terpenoids from mushrooms.
Natural products that target virulence factors in antibiotic resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
This review discusses the mechanisms of the major virulence factors of S. aureus, including the accessory gene regulator quorum-sensing system, bacterial biofilm formation, α-hemolysin, sortase A, and staphyloxanthin, and their adjuvant effects on existing antibiotics to overcome antibiotic-resistant S.Aureus.


Genome sequence of the insect pathogenic fungus Cordyceps militaris, a valued traditional chinese medicine
It is established that C. militaris is sexually heterothallic but, very unusually, fruiting can occur without an opposite mating-type partner, which suggests a more restricted ecology.
(±)-Tylopilusins, diphenolic metabolites from the fruiting bodies of Tylopilus eximius.
Two racemates of the diphenolic metabolites were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Tylopilus eximius and their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic analyses and X-ray crystallography.
Compounds from wild mushrooms with antitumor potential.
This work will review the compounds with antitumor potential identified so far in mushrooms, including low-molecular-weight (LMW, e.g. quinones, cerebrosides, isoflavones, catechols, amines, triacylglycerols, sesquiterpenes, steroids, organic germanium and selenium).
Lariatins, Novel Anti-mycobacterial Peptides with a Lasso Structure, Produced by Rhodococcus jostii K01-B0171
Two anti-mycobacterial peptides with a lasso structure, named lariatins A and B, were separated by HP-20 and ODS column chromatographies and purified by HPLC from the culture broth of Rhodococcus
Search method for inhibitors of Staphyloxanthin production by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
Two known anthraquinones, 6-deoxy-8-O-methylrabelomycin and tetrangomycin, were found to inhibit staphyloxanthin production by MRSA in the paper disk assay, suggesting that this screening method is useful and effective to find compounds targeting stAPHyloxAnthin production, leading to a new type of chemotherapeutics against MRSA infection.
Atromentin, anticoagulant from Hydnellum diabolus.
Gross screening revealed that Hydnellum diabolus Banker contained a parenterally effective anticoagulant, while H. aurantiacum , H. caeruleum , and Hydnum laevigatum lacked activity. A 70 per cent
Regioselective synthesis of kojic acid esters by Bacillus subtilis protease
The lipophilicity of kojic acid was improved by esterifying it with either divinyl adipate, vinyl hexanoate, Vinyl octanoate or vinyl decanoate using protease from Bacillus subtilis for 7 d.
Anticancer Drugs from Traditional Toxic Chinese Medicines
By comparing their related phytochemistry, toxic effects and the recent advances in understanding the mechanisms of action, this review puts forward some ideals and examples about how to increase antitumour activity and/or reduce the side effects experienced with Chinese medicine.
