Aspercolorin is an atypical cyclic tetrapeptide in which one of the amino acids is a 5-methoxyanthranilic acid. Recently, aspercolorin has found application as a secondary metabolite standard in polyphasic taxonomy for the identification of Aspergillus versicolor. No reports of the pharmacology of aspercolorin are available in the literature.
