Production of 26-deoxymonensins A and B by Streptomyces cinnamonensis in the presence of Metyrapone.

By S Pospísil, P Sedmera, V Havlícek and J Tax


Metyrapone, a potent cytochrome P-450 inhibitor, added at 9 mM to a submerged culture of Streptomyces cinnamonensis caused partial inhibition of total monensin biosynthesis and coproduction of new metabolites, 26-deoxymonensins A and B. The latter was isolated as its 25-O-methyl derivative. Metyrapone was simultaneously reduced to metyrapol. All of these compounds were identified by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and mass spectrometry
