Abstract

Triterpenoids belonging to the hopane family are widespread among prokaryotes. The two major hopanoids isolated from the methylotrophic bacterium ‘’ grown on methane or methanol were identified by spectroscopic methods as the aminotriol 35-aminobacteriohopane-32,33,34-triol and a novel aminotetrol, 35-aminobacteriohopane-31,32,33,34-tetrol. The former hopanoid has been previously isolated from the purple non-sulphur bacterium .
