Antibiotics Produced by Bacillus Bacteria

  • R. N. Mannanov
  • R. K. Sattarova


Data for antibiotics produced byBacillusbacteria and structural formulas of the antibiotics gramicidin, tyrocidine, bacitracin, mycobacillin, surfactin, bacilysin, and subtilin are presented. Various biosynthetic mechanisms and chemical properties are discussed. The lantibiotics, which are produced by certainBacillusspecies and have unique structural features different from those of other antibiotics, are analyzed. Structural formulas of unusual amino acid residues in lantibiotics are presented and their mechanisms of biological action are examined
