From the hydrophilic extract of the ascidian Polycarpa aurata three new compounds, N-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-N'-methylguanidine (1), butyl 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-oxoacetate (2), and 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-N-methyl-2-oxoacetamide (3), together with the known compounds methyl 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2-oxoacetate (4) and 4-methoxybenzoic acid were isolated. The structures of all isolates were determined...

A red-pigmented coryneform bacterium, identified as Rhodococcus rhodochrous strain 116, that grew on 2-ethoxyphenol and 4-methoxybenzoate as sole carbon and energy sources was isolated. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 16S rDNA sequences indicates that the strain clusters more closely to...
