Six new pentaketide ansamycins, namely, shengliangmycins A-F (1-6, respectively), were obtained from the fermentation products of Streptomyces sp. S008OEslmR2 that was derived by constitutive expression of LAL regulator gene slmR2. The structures of 1-6 were determined through comprehensive spectroscopic analysis and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Compound 1 has a cis-C6═C7 bond, which is different from that of compounds 2-5. Compounds 3-6 feature a morpholinone structural moiety, whereas 5 is characterized by a pyrazoline ring, which is rare in natural products.
