Structure elucidation of a novel family of mycolactone toxins from the frog pathogen Mycobacterium sp. MU128FXT by mass spectrometry

Author affiliations

Abstract

Structures are proposed, based on LC-ion trap MSn analysis and high-resolution FTICR MS/MS analysis, for a novel family of mycolactone toxins isolated from the frog pathogen MU128FXT and differing from those produced by the human pathogen M. ulcerans MUAgy99 in having an altered polyketide side chain.
