Abstract

A new macrolide antibiotic, swalpamycin, has been isolated from the culture broth of Streptomyces sp. Y-84,30967. Taxonomically the producing organism most closely resembles Streptomyces anandii and has therefore been named S. anandii subsp. swalpus. Swalpamycin is a neutral 16-membered macrolide active against Gram-positive bacteria including erythro-mycin-resistant strains.
