Cerulenin Facts Sheet

( test  position )

Cerulenin is an Antifungal antibiotic isolated from Cephalosporium caerulens; Acryocylindrium oryzae; Helicoceras oryzae

Cerulenin  Interrupts yeast-type fungi growth by inhibiting the biosynthesis of sterols and fatty acids.

Cerulenin  Inhibits HMG-CoA synthetase activity. Cerulenin  Induces apoptosis in tumor cell lines

Cerulenin 2D formula:

cerulenin 2d


Cerulenin should be Protected from light.
