Antibiotic activity of an extract of peyote (Lophophora williamii (Lemaire) Coulter)

, : Antibiotic activity of an extract of peyote (Lophophora williamii (Lemaire) Coulter). Econ. Bot, 14: 247-9. bibl. 10

A water-soluble crystalline substance, separated from an ethanol extract, exhibited antibiotic activity against a wide spectrum of bacteria and a species of the imperfect fungi. The name peyocactin has been given to the principal antimicrobial component of this partially purified substance. Of particular interest was its inhibitory action against 18 strains of Staphylococcus aureus resistant to penicillin. -Ariz. St.
