    ABSTRACT: To investigate the chemical biodiversity of biologically active cyclic hexapeptides in the metabolites from microorganisms, the fermentation broth of Streptomyces alboflavus 313 was analyzed using HPLC, equipped with a diode array detector (DAD), coupled with ESI tandem MS (HPLC-DAD-ESI-MS/MS). In the mass spectra of cyclic hexapeptides, predominant ions [M+H](+), as well as [M-18+H](+), [M-28+H](+) and [M+Na](+), were observed and used to determine the molecular masses, while fragmentation reactions of [M+H](+) were recorded to provide information on the contents of amino acids and their linkage sequence. Based on the fragmentation patterns and comparison with standards, 15 pyrroloindoline-containing natural cyclic hexapeptides, cp01-15, were identified from the microorganism and six of these are reported for the first time.The Journal of Antibiotics advance online publication, 30 January 2013; doi:10.1038/ja.2013.7.

    ABSTRACT: A series of N-acylated analogues of 1-isopropyl-3-acyl-5-methyl-benzimidazolone were synthesized. Bioassay results indicated that analogues 5-07 and 5-19 exhibited the most potency against Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Analogues 5-02, 5-07, 5-12, 5-15, 5-19, 5-20 and 5-25 could effectively inhibit the spore germination of Botrytis cinerea. The relationship between structure and their antimicrobial activity (SAR) has also been discussed according to aliphatic acids and aromatic acids derivatives, respectively. This implied that the N-acylated derivatives of 5-methyl-benzimidazolone might be potential antimicrobial agents.

    ABSTRACT: Two novel cyclic hexapeptides, designated NW-G08 (1) and NW-G09 (2), were isolated from the fermentation broth of Streptomyces alboflavus 313. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analysis, MS experiments, and chemical analysis. Their antibacterial activities against several strains of bacteria were evaluated by micro-broth dilution method. NW-G08 (1) and NW-G09 (2) were highly antibacterial against Gram-positive but not active against Gram-negative bactaria. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 1 against Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, and Staphylococcus aureus were 6.25, 6.25, and 1.56 μg/ml, respectively. It is worth noting that 1 and 2 exhibited much higher activities against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) than ampicillin, which implies that they might be potential candidates for the development of novel drugs against resistant pathogenic bacteria.

    ABSTRACT: A series of (28) 1-alkyl-3-methacryloyl (acryloyl)-benzimidazolone (thione) deriv-atives were synthesized. The structures of the new derivatives were confirmed by (1)H-NMR, (13)C-NMR and ESI-MS spectral analysis. The antibacterial activities of these compounds against several strains of bacteria, such as Bacillus cereus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, were evaluated by methods of paper disc-diffusion and broth mciro-dilution. Methacryloyl derivatives displayed higher antibacterial activities against tested bacterial strains than those of acryloyl derivatives in in vitro tests. A structure-activity relationship (SAR) study revealed that the presences of the methacryloyl moieties is essential to the antibacterial activities of the compounds.

    ABSTRACT: Celangulins are a small family of β-dihydroagarofuran sesquiterpenoids endowed with diverse polyoxygenated polyol esters and various biological properties. Since our research focuses on celangulins, the development of rapid and sensitive online analytical methods to analyse and characterise them is of great significance. To develop an HPLC-DAD-ESI-MS/MS method capable of simple and rapid analysis of celangulins in crude extract of root bark of C. angulatus extracts. High-performance liquid chromatography coupled with a diode array detector and electrospray ionisation tandem mass spectrometry was established for the efficient and rapid identification of the celangulins. Chromatographic separations of celangulins were performed on a Hypersil Gold C(18) reverse-phase column by gradient elution with acetonitrile-water as mobile phase at a flow-rate 0.2 mL/min. ESI/MS/MS analysis of sodium adduct ion ([M + Na](+) ) of each celangulin shows that all the celangulins produced very similar fragmentation profiles, and that the characteristic fragments at m/z 245, m/z 229 and m/z 231 were defined as the diagnostic ions for celangulins. Simultaneously, 46 components in the extracts of this plant were separated, and 36 of them were characterised as celangulins by online ESI/MS/MS and by comparing their retention times, UV and MS spectra with those of authentic compounds. HPLC-DAD-ESI-MS/MS was demonstrated to be a powerful tool for the characterisation of minor celangulins in complex samples.

    ABSTRACT: Five streptothricin acids (compounds 1-5) were isolated by ion-exchange resin chromatography and preparative RP-HPLC from the fermentation broth of Streptomyces qinlingensis. Their structures were elucidated mainly by analyses of the IR, HR-EIS-MS and NMR spectral data. They were deduced as two known compounds, streptothricin F acid (1) and streptothricin D acid (2), and three new compounds, 12-carbamoylstreptothricin E acid (3), 12-carbamoylstreptothricin D acid (4) and N-acetyl-streptothricin D acid (5), respectively. The antibacterial activities of 1-5 against Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa were assayed by micro-broth dilution. Comparison of the MICs with streptothricin F and D showed that the antimicrobial activities of 1-5 were decreased significantly but varied with the structures.

    ABSTRACT: The title compound, [Cu(C(2)O(4))(2)(C(6)H(14)NO)(2)], was synthesized by mixing diacetonamine hydrogen oxalate and copper sulfate in ethanol/water. The mol-ecule is centrosymmetric, so two pairs of equivalent ligands lie trans to each other. The Cu(II) center, located on a position with 2/m site symmetry, is six-coordinated by four O atoms from two oxalate ligands at short distances and the carbonyl O atoms from the 4-amino-4-methyl-pentan-2-one ligands at longer distances. Mol-ecules are linked through inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds between the amino groups and carbonyl O atoms; no intra-molecular hydrogen bonds are formed.

    ABSTRACT: Several streptothricin antibiotics have been studied by tandem mass spectrometry. The dominant product ions were derived from the C7-N bond cleavage which lead to lose streptolidine from the [M+H]+. The fragmentation pathways of key ions were described and certained by parent scan. According to the generalized principles, streptothricin isomers could be distinguished easily by the difference of CID spectra. A facile method based on ion-pair RP-HPLC coupled with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry has been established for the analysis of streptothricins in the fermentation broth of Streptomyces qinlingensis. A total of 19 streptothricinlike compounds were identified or tentatively characterized based on their mass spectral data, and in which 11 were the first reported compounds. This could be used as an important de-replication method in the programs of screening novel antibiotics.Keywords: streptothricins, electrospray ionization, tandem mass spectometry, structural characterization

    ABSTRACT: Four streptothricin-group antibiotics (1~4) were isolated from the fermentation broth of Streptomyces qinlingensis sp. nov. Along with the known antibiotics streptothricins F (1) and D (3), two new members of this class (2, 4) were identified as 12-carbamoyl derivatives of 1 and 3, respectively, mainly by analysis of the IR, HR-MS and NMR spectral data. The antibacterial activities of 1~4 against Escherichia coli (MICs 3.1, 25.0, 3.1 and 12.5 microg/ml), Bacillus subtilis (MICs 6.3, 25.0, 3.1 and 50 microg/ml), Staphylococcus aureus (MICs 12.5, >100.0, 6.3, >100.0 microg/ml), Bacillus cereus (MICs 25.0, 50.0, 25.0 and 50.0 microg/ml) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MICs 50.0, >100.0, 50.0, >100.0 microg/ml) were assayed by micro-broth dilution. The results based on MIC data indicated that 2 and 4 exhibited significantly less potent antibacterial activities when compared to that of 1 and 3.
