Chemical Name: (S)-3,6-Diamino-N-((3S,9S,12S,15S,Z)3((2R,4S)-6-amino-4-hydroxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyridin-2-yl)-9,12-bis(hydroxymethyl)-2,5,8,11,14-pentaoxo-6-(ureidomethylene)-1,4,7,10,13-pentaazacyclohexadecan-15-yl)hexanamide disulfate
Biological ActivityMember of the tuberactinomycin family of antibiotics. Inhibits group I intron splicing and prokaryotic protein synthesis. Freezes bacterial ribosomes in either the pre- or post-translational state. Facilitates trans-cleavage of the Neurospora VS ribozyme.
