Michael, Adam P. and Grace, Emily J. and Kotiw, Mike and Barrow, Russell A. (2002) Ravenic acid, a new tetramic acid isolated from a cultured microfungus, penicillium sp. Journal of Natural Products, 65 (9). pp. 1360-1362. ISSN 0163-3864


A new antibiotic polyene tetramic acid, ravenic acid (2), has been isolated from the mycelia of a cultured fungus, Penicillium sp. The structure of ravenic acid was determined by detailed spectroscopic analysis and the major isomer identified as possessing (3Z, 7E, 9E, 11E, 13E) stereochemistry.
