Abstract:

By fermentation using Streptomyces longisporus ruber 3762, Actinomadura madurae R-39 and A. pelletieri 610 we have prepared and purified 500 mg. each of 3 basic pigments for antimalarial testing. These red pigments have similar, rather unusual chemical structures, including 3 pyrrole rings as well as a large carbocyclic ring. Author
