ABSTRACTEnokipodins are antimicrobial sesquiterpenes produced by Flammulina velutipes in a mycelial culture medium. To date, enokipodin production has not been reported in other members of the genu...

The biosynthetic potential of soil-dwelling actinomycetes to produce diverse bioactive molecules that are useful as drug seeds has been achieved in the laboratory by modifying culture conditions. Availability of a small molecule that can induce secondary metabolism in these microbes can greatly facilitate the exploration of bioactive natural products. In this manuscript, through the screening of natural products and chemical modification, we demonstrated that the presence of the β-carboline comp...
Nucleoside antibiotics possess various biological activities such as antibacterial, antifungal, anticancer, and herbicidal activities. RIKEN scientists contributed to this area of research with two representative antifungal nucleoside antibiotics, blasticidin S and polyoxin. Blasticidin S was the first antibiotic exploited in agriculture worldwide. Meanwhile, the polyoxins discovered by Isono and Suzuki are still used globally as an agricultural antibiotic. In this review article, the research o...

A new antifungal compound YO-001A was found from the culture broth of Streptomyces sp. YO15-A001, which was isolated from a soil sample collected in Toyama Prefecture. YO-001A was identified through morphological changes-based screening of the rice blast fungus, Pyricularia oryzae (P. oryzae). YO-001A is a new 26-membered macrolide of the oligomycin family, which exhibits potent antifungal activity against P. oryzae with an IC50 of 0.012 µM by disrupting mitochondrial respiration via inhibition ...
A new siderophore glucuronide, nocardamin glucuronide (1), was isolated together with nocardamin (2) by applying the one strain-many compounds (OSMAC) approach to the ascamycin-producing strain, Streptomyces sp. 80H647, and performing multivariate analysis using mass spectral data. Structure elucidation was accomplished by a combination of NMR and MS analyses. The absolute configuration of the glucuronic acid moiety was found to be β-D-GlcA by hydrolysis using β-glucuronidase, subsequent derivat...
Abstract This study compared the chronological life span and survival of Saccharomyces cerevisiae aged in a microplate or bottle, under different aeration and calorie restriction conditions. Our data shows that limited aeration in the microplate-aged culture contributed to slower outgrowth but extended yeast CLS compared to the bottle-aged culture.

Summary The cellular thermal shift assay (CETSA) has recently been devised as a label-free method for target validation of small compounds and monitoring the thermal stabilization or destabilization of proteins due to binding with the compound. Herein, we developed a modified method by combining the CETSA and proteomics analysis based on 2D gel electrophoresis, namely 2DE-CETSA, to identify the thermal stability-shifted proteins by binding with a new compound. We applied the 2DE-CETSA for analys...

Information about substrate and product selectivity is critical for understanding the function of cytochrome P450 monooxygenases. In addition, comprehensive understanding of changes in substrate selectivity of P450 upon amino acid mutation would enable the design and creation of engineered P450s with desired selectivities. Therefore, systematic methods for obtaining such information are required. Herein, we developed an integrated P450 substrate screening system for the selection of “exemplary” ...
