    ..These findings can be a basis for chemotaxonomy. It is also possible that the biological function of stenusine, e.g., as antibiotic or fungicide, varies with changing stereoisomer composition...

    Naturwissenschaften 95:751-5. 2008
    ..Stenusine not only allows for an extraordinary method of locomotion on water surfaces, it also protects the Steninae from being infested with microorganisms...

    ..bimaculatus beetles with deuterium-labeled amino acids and using GC/MS analysis showed that L-lysine forms the piperidine ring of the stenusine molecule. The side chain originates from L-isoleucine and the N-ethyl group from acetate...
