Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Five new congeners of elaiomycin featuring the rare azoxy function were isolated from Streptomyces sp. strain HKI0708. Individual elaiomycins exhibit specific antimycobacterial, anti-Aspergillus, and cytotoxic activities, providing provisional data on structure activity relationships. The co-occurrence of the azoxide variants indicates a biogenetic relationship that illustrates new diversification steps in elaiomycin biosynthesis.
