YO-001A, a new antifungal agent produced by Streptomyces sp. YO15-A001
A new antifungal compound YO-001A was found from the culture broth of Streptomyces sp. YO15-A001, which was isolated from a soil sample collected in Toyama Prefecture. YO-001A was identified through morphological changes-based screening of the rice blast fungus, Pyricularia oryzae (P. oryzae). YO-001A is a new 26-membered macrolide of the oligomycin family, which exhibits  potent antifungal activity against P. (Source: The Aspergillus Website - updates)
