Bananamides D – G are cyclic lipodepsipeptides that were first extracted from the cocoyam rhizosphere-derived biocontrol strain Pseudomonas koreensis COW3. These CLiPs induce antagonistic activity against several fungi. Structurally, they belong to the bananamide group.
Purified bananamides D -G induce antagonistic activity and mycophagy against Pythium myriotylum between 1 µM and 50 µM, while it mainly shows mycophagy on Pyricularia oryzae in the same concentration range.
The chemical structures of bananamides D through G were characterized by means of NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. (Omoboye, 2019) These CLiPs consist of 8 amino acids, 6 of which are involved in the macrocycle formed by an ester bond between the C-terminal carboxylic acid and the side chain hydroxyl moiety of Thr3. The bananamides D – G differ solely in the length and saturation of the N-terminal fatty acid tail.
Structurally, bananamides D – G belong to the bananamide group. This group of lipopeptides consists of its name-sake CLiPs bananamides 1 – 3 (also known as bananamides A – C) (Nguyen, 2016) and MDN-0066 (Cautain, 2015). Withing this group, variations are located at position 6 (featuring either Ser6 or Gln6), position 2 (Glu2 or Asp2) or the fatty acid tail. Finally, the stereochemistry of all bananamide group members, including bananamide D – G, remains unknow.
