A combined-culture method was applied to saccharothriolide-producing strain Saccharothrix sp. A1506 with the mycolic acid-containing bacterium (MACB) Tsukamurella pulmonis TP-B0596. The combined-culture not only enhanced saccharothriolide production, but also produced saccharothriolide C 2 , a new C-2 epimer of saccharothriolide C, thereby indicating its potential for increasing the chemical diversity of microbial metabolites.
