  1. LC-MS/MS determination of colistin in Mueller-Hinton broth for in vitro pharmacodynamic studies.

    Journal of Antibiotics 67(12):825 (2014) PMID 24984793

    A rapid and simple method was developed and validated for the determination of colistin A and B in Mueller-Hinton broth using LC-tandem MS. Both analyte and internal standard (IS) (polymyxin B1) were determined using ESI. The MS data were obtained via the selected reaction monitoring in positive-ion...
  2. Identification, synthesis and characterization of a novel antimicrobial peptide HKPLP derived from Hippocampus kuda Bleeker

    Journal of Antibiotics (2012) PMID 22252202

    A novel gene encoding 55 amino-acid residues has been identified from the brooding pouch cDNA library of Hippocampus kuda Bleeker. The deduced amino-acid sequence is highly homologous to several pleurocidin-like peptides from the winter flounder and comprises a signal peptide, a pro-...
  3. Lanostane-type triterpenes from the sporoderm-broken spores of Ganoderma lucidum.

    Journal of Antibiotics (2012) PMID 22234297

     The Journal of Antibiotics advance online publication, 11 January 2012; doi:10.1038/ja.2011.135.
  4. Spread of cfr gene among staphylococci conferring resistance to linezolid in a patient under treatment

    Journal of Antibiotics 65(3):151 (2011) PMID 22186596

  5. Ganodermycin, a novel inhibitor of CXCL10 expression from Ganoderma applanatum

    Journal of Antibiotics 64(10):683 (2011) PMID 21792205

    CXCL10 (inducible protein-10) is a highly inducible chemoattractant, which contributes to the recruitment of inflammatory cells, such as macrophages and T-lymphocytes, and thereby has important roles in chronic inflammatory conditions. In a search for new inhibitors of CXCL10 express...
  6. Synthesis and antibacterial activity of new 4″-O-carbamates of 11,12-cyclic carbonate erythromycin A 6,9-imino ether.

    Journal of Antibiotics 64(3):243 (2011) PMID 21245870

    A series of new 4″-O-carbamates of 11,12-cyclic carbonate erythromycin A 6,9-imino ether were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity. All the desired compounds demonstrated favorable activity (0.03 μg ml(-1)) against erythromycin-susceptible Strept...
  7. Characterization of two cytochrome P450 monooxygenase genes of the pyripyropene biosynthetic gene cluster from Penicillium coprobium.

    Journal of Antibiotics 64(3):221 (2011) PMID 21224862

    We predicted the biosynthetic gene cluster of PyA by blast analysis comparing with polyketide synthase and prenyltransferase of other species. By screening the genomic fosmid library, nine open reading frames (ppb1 to ppb9) related to the biosynthesis of PyA were deduced. Among them, two cytochrome...
  8. Genome mining and biosynthesis of fumitremorgin-type alkaloids in ascomycetes.

    Journal of Antibiotics 64(1):45 (2011) PMID 21063425

    This review summarizes the recent progress on the biosynthesis of fumitremorgin-type alkaloids; that is, the identification of the biosynthetic gene clusters from genome sequences by genome mining and proof of gene function by molecular biological and biochemical investigations.
  9. Marinactinones A-C, new γ-pyrones from marine actinomycete Marinactinospora thermotolerans SCSIO 00606.

    Journal of Antibiotics 64(2):189 (2011) PMID 21157453

    Three new γ-pyrones named marinactinones A-C (1-3) were isolated from marine-derived actinomycete Marinactinospora thermotolerans SCSIO 00606. These structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic methods. All three new compounds were evaluated for cytotoxic effects on six can...
  10. Staphylococcus aureus promoter-lux reporters for drug discovery.

    Journal of Antibiotics 63(8):492 (2010) PMID 20606700

    We describe a collection of antibiotic-activated Staphylococcus aureus promoter-lux reporter strains that can be used to discriminate among antibiotic classes on the basis of their light production response profile. We screened over 400 culture supernatants from previously uncharacterized actinomyce...
