Description

[0001] This application is a division of U.S. application Ser. No. 09/719,932, filed Mar. 21, 2001, allowed, which is the U.S. National Stage of PCT/EP99/04244, filed Jun. 18, 1999, which claims priority to DE 19826988.9, filed Jun. 18, 1998, the disclosure of each of which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.

[0002] The invention concerns compounds which in the present context are designated epothilone side components, viz. compounds 5 to 13 and 16 to 39. These compounds can be produced by fermenting DSM 6773 in accordance to DE 41 38 042.8.

[0003] Characterizing data of the compounds according to the invention will be compiled as follows.

[0004] Production: The processing of a raw epothilone mixture, which has been produced by fermenting DSM 6773 in a 900 1 fermentor, can be drawn schematically from FIGS. 1 to 2.
