The chemical structure of capreomycin, antituberculous peptide antibiotic, was revised from the results of NMR-analysis in comparison with tuberactinomycins. Capreomycin IA and IB were concluded to possess the similar amino acid sequences in their cyclic peptide moieties to those of tuberactionomycins.

    The ratio was calculated from the integration of CH3 protons of alanine on the basis of those of other protons on NMR-spectrum. The value was concomitant to the result of amino acid analysis of the sample.Google Scholar
