Angustmycin A

  • Armand J. Guarino

Angustmycin A1 is a nucleoside produced by Streptomyces hygroscoplus,and its isolation from this organism has usually been found to be associated with angustmycin C (psicofuranine). Angustmycin A was originally identified as 6-amino-9-(L-1,2-fucopyranoseenyl)-purine by Yüntsen et al. (1958).
