Deoxymulundocandin--a New Echinocandin Type Antifungal Antibiotic

J Antibiot (Tokyo). 1992 May;45(5):618-23. doi: 10.7164/antibiotics.45.618.


A new echinocandin type antifungal antibiotic, deoxymulundocandin, C48H77N7O15, was isolated from the culture filtrate and mycelia of a fungal culture, Aspergillus sydowii (Bainier and Sartory) Thom and Church var. nov. mulundensis Roy (Culture No. Y-30462). The structure was established by comparative GC-MS analyses of the derivatized acid hydrolysates of deoxymulundocandin and mulundocandin as well as by the high field NMR experiments (COSY, NOESY and DEPT).
