Two antibiotic substances (I1 and I2) isolated from yeast ferments have been shown to be polypeptides. I1 contained glutamic acid, serine, glycine, alanine, valine, leucine, and tryptophan. I2 contained the same compounds present in I1 and in addition gamma-aminobutyric acid, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine. The infrared spectra of I1 and I2 were similar but not identical to that of gramicidin. The antibiotic substances were found to survive baking.
