ABSTRACT
The marine bacterium “Pseudoalteromonas januaria” SUT 11 isolated from a seawater sample produced the rare cell-bound cyclic lipodepsipeptides A/A′, B/B′, and C/C′. The matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectra indicated that one bromine atom presented in the peptides B/B′ and C/C′, whereas the component A/A′ contained no bromine atom. The acyldepsipeptides A/A′–C/C′ have an identical amino acid sequence, Thr-Val-Asn-Asn-Leu/ allo-Ile, but differed in C-terminal amino acid and acyl moieties. Peptides A–C have Leu as a C-terminal amino acid, whereas peptides A′-C′ have allo-Ile. Acyl moieties in peptides A/A′, B/B′, and C/C′ have been found to consist of 11-(4′-hydroxyphenyl)-undeca-2,4,6,8,10-pentaenic acid, 9-(3′-bromo-4′-hydroxyphenyl)-nona-2,4,6,8-tetraenic acid, and 11-(3′-bromo-4′-hydroxyphenyl)-undeca-2,4,6,8,10-pentaenic acid, respectively. The structure of a main pair of peptides B/B′ with molecular masses 843/845 Da has been determined by means of ultraviolet, infrared, and two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. We have demonstrated that tandem nano-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry is a very efficient way for the fast and sensitive investigation of lipopeptides A/A′ and C/C′ with molecular masses 791 and 869/871 Da, respectively, which have been isolated in small amounts.
