Sample text

Extracted the antibiotic from Serratia marcescens cells with acetone and after re-extracting with petroleum ether, evaporated the extract in vacuo at 3 0 - 4 0 ° C . Prodigiosin is a monovalent base, C 2 0 H 2 3 O N 3 , which in the amorphous state has the appearance of red platelets with green metaUic sheen. T h e following crystaUine salts of prodigiosin were obtained: picrate, salicylate, benzoate, hydrochloride and perchlorate. T h e latter crystallizes on addition of perchloric acid to an ethanolic solution of prodigiosin hydrochloride.

When acetic acid was added to the medium, both carbon atoms, the one of the carboxyl group and the one of the methyl group, are utihzed in biosynthesis. T h e isotope from D L - l e u c i n e or a m m o n i u m salts containing ^^N was not incorporated into prodigiosin, but was recovered in the proteins of the bacterial cells. Santer and Vogel found that one of two mutants of the strain Serratia marcescens, mutant 9 - 3 - 3 , produces a substance, C10H10O2N2, which has been isolated, and found to have a composition of C , 63-0; H , 5-3; O, 17-0; N , 14-7; CH3O, 16-6%.
