J Gen Microbiol. 1976 Jul;95(1):96-106. doi: 10.1099/00221287-95-1-96.

Abstract

The antibiotic whose biosynthesis is determined by the SCP1 plasmid of Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) has been characterized as the recently described methylenomycin A (2-methylene-cyclopentan-3-one-4,5-epoxy-4,5-dimethyl-1-carboxylic acid).
