Request for globomycin

     I am about to begin some work on what we believe to be
a bacterial lipoprotein.  Does anyone out there know where
I can obtain the antibiotic globomycin?  Papers I have read
which make use of this antibiotic always acknowledge it as
a gift, usually from someone at the Sankyo Corp. in Tokyo.
I have also read that globomycin is not commercially
available.  Unfortunately I do not have a proper address
for Sankyo.  I would be very grateful if someone could let
me have some globomycin or supply me with an address where
I could obtain some.  Also, any tips or advice on the
analysis of lipoproteins would be appreciated.
