Two new compounds, the peptide-polyketide glycoside totopotensamide A (1) and its aglycone totopotensamide B (2), were isolated from a Streptomyces sp. cultivated from the gastropod mollusk Lienardia totopotens collected in the Philippines. The compounds contain a previously undescribed polyketide component, a novel 2,3-diaminobutyric acid-containing macrolactam, and a new amino acid, 4-chloro-5,7-dihydroxy-6-methylphenylglycine. The application of Marfey's method to phenylglycine derivatives was explored using quantum mechanical calculations and NMR.
