Abstract

Phenelfamycins G and H are new members of the family of elfamycin antibiotics with the basic structure of phenelfamycins E and F, respectively, which are also well known as ganefromycins α and β. Phenelfamycins G and H differ from phenelfamycins E and F by an additional hydroxy group at position C-30, which is not described so far for any of the elfamycin-type antibiotics. The actinomycete strain that produced phenelfamycins G and H was identified to be Streptomyces albospinus based on its 16S rRNA gene sequence. Phenelfamycins G and H exhibit a narrow antibacterial spectrum with a pronounced inhibitory activity against Propionibacterium acnes.
