Cordycepin is a nucleoside metabolite first isolated by Cunningham in 1951 as an antibacterial from Cordyceps militaris, an ascomycete that parasitises soil dwelling caterpillars. Cordycepin was subsequently proven to be a simple analogue of adenosine, 3’-deoxyadenosine. Cordycepin is a potent antitumor active. Its production, chemistry, biosynthesis and bioactivity were reviewed by Suhadolink in 1970. More recently, natural medicinal preparations of C. militaris have found wide appeal and sparked re-investigation into cordycepin’s effects on abnormal gut dwelling bacteria.
