Isolation and structure determination of two new hydrophobic microcystins from Microcystis sp. (CAWBG11)
Puddick J, Prinsep MR, Wood SA, Cary SC, Hamilton DP, Wilkins AL 2013. Isolation and structure determination of two new hydrophobic microcystins from Microcystis sp. (CAWBG11). Phytochemistry Letters, 6: Pages 575-581.
Two new hydrophobic microcystins, microcystin-FA (1) and microcystin-WA (2), were isolated from the cyanobacterium Microcystis sp. (CAWBG11). The structures were deduced using one- and two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and tandem mass spectrometry. The absolute stereochemistry of the amino acid residues in 1 and 2 was determined using the Advanced Marfey's method.
