Abstract

Peptide antibiotics tripropeptins A, B, C, D and Z were isolated from cultured cells and broth of Lysobacter sp. The differences among these components are in the lengths of the alkyl side chain. Tripropeptins are active against Gram-positive bacteria including MRSA in vitro. Bactericidal activity of tripropeptin C disappeared in the simultaneous presence of chloramphenicol, a bacteriostatic agent.
