Bacillamides from a hypersaline microbial mat bacterium

J Nat Prod. 2007 Nov;70(11):1793-5. doi: 10.1021/np070126a. Epub 2007 Nov 8.


Chemical studies of a Bacillus endophyticus isolated from a Bahamian hypersaline microbial mat led to the isolation of bacillamides B and C, new tryptamide thiazole metabolites. Bioassay-guided fractionation using a HPLC-UV-MS bioassay technique enabled the detection of these trace fermentation products, and their total structures were elucidated by combined spectroscopic techniques.
