Purity:>99% by HPLC Description About Chrysomycin A CAS 82196-88-1:
Chrysomycin A is an antibiotic isolated from a strain of Streptomyces.
Chrysomycin A is the major analogue in a complex of C-glycoside antitumour actives isolated from Streptomyces. Chrysomycin A, with a vinyl group in the 8-position, is the most potent analogue of the complex, and is thought to act as an inhibitor of the catalytic activity of human topoisomerase II. Chrysomycin A has a potent antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antitumour profile. More recent research on related metabolites, the gilvocarcins, suggests that chrysomycins may act as photoactivated, cross-linkers of DNA to histones.
