From the culture broth of Streptomyces nodosus MH190-16F3, four new antibiotics have been isolated, and named saquayamycins A, B, C and D. The compounds are glycosides of aquayamycin, and among aquayamycin-group antibiotics they are most closely related to P-1894B (vineomycin A1). All saquayamycins act on Gram-positive bacteria and inhibit the growth of adriamycin-sensitive and adriamycin-resistant P388 leukemia cells.
