Summary of "Synthesis and Biological Activity of Analogs of the Antifungal Antibiotic UK-2A. II. Impact of modifications to the macrocycle benzyl position."

UK-2A is an antifungal antibiotic produced by Streptomyces sp. 517-02. Derivatization of its picolinamide-OH to form the isobutyryl-acetal led to the discovery of fenpicoxamid (InatreqTM active) currently under development as a fungicide by Dow AgroSciences LLC. This paper documents efforts to achieve additional efficacy enhancements through semi-synthetic modification of the benzyl substituent of the UK-2A macrocycle.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Antifungal metabolite from several fungi, mainly Trichoderma viride; inhibits protein synthesis by binding to ribosomes; proposed as antifungal and antineoplastic; used as tool in cellular biochemistry.

Compounds obtained by chemical synthesis that are analogs or derivatives of naturally occurring prostaglandins and that have similar activity.

Basic peptide antibiotic from Bacillus brevis. It exhibits broad-spectrum antibacterial activity and inhibits bacterial DNA synthesis.

Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or agents of organic origin, usually obtained by biological methods or assay. They are used especially in diagnosis and treatment of disease (as vaccines or pollen extracts). Biological products are differentiated from BIOLOGICAL FACTORS in that the latter are compounds with biological or physiological activity made by living organisms. (From Webster's 3d ed)

A broad-spectrum spectrum antineoplastic antibiotic isolated from Streptomyces refuineus var. thermotolerans. It has low toxicity, some activity against Trichomonas and Endamoeba, and inhibits RNA and DNA synthesis. It binds irreversibly to DNA.
