A new aminocyclitol derivative, designated nabscessin C (1), was isolated from Nocardia abscessus IFM 10029T. Nabcessin C is an isomer of nabscessins A (2) and B (3) with different positioning of the acyl group. Absolute configuration of nabscessin A was determined by conversion into the 2-deoxy-scyllo-inosamine pentaacetyl derivative (4) by hydrolysis and acetylation of 2. The biosynthetic pathway of nabscessins is proposed based on gene expression analysis.
