Abstract: Untreated eggs of the tick Amblyomma hebraeum Koch (Acari: Ixodidae) exhibited antimicrobial activity (AMA) against Gram-negative but not Gram-positive bacteria; eggs denuded of wax by solvent extraction showed no AMA. The unfractionated egg wax extract, however, showed AMA against...
The lipopeptides, tridecaptin A1, tridecaptin B1 and cerexin A1 were isolated from Paenibacillus terrae NRRL B-30644, Paenibacillus polymyxa NRRL B-30507 and Bacillus mycoides ATCC 21929, respectively. A combination of chemical synthesis, peptide derivatization, high performance liquid...
