Two new members of enacyloxins (ENXs) were isolated from the culture extract of Frateuria sp. W-315. Spectrometric analyses revealed their structures as decarbamoyl enacyloxin IVa and IIa, the latter preferentially existed in the hemiacetal form. Formation of these compounds were catalyzed by enzymes produced by the fungus. From the coupling constant values of the hemiacetal part of dec ENX IIa, the (17′R*, 18′S*, 19′R*) relative configuration of ENXs was also elucidated.
