Application Notes

Herbimycin A is the major analogue of a complex of benzoquinone ansamycin antibiotics isolated from a Streptomyces hygroscopicus. Herbimycin A inhibits the 90-kDa heat-shock protein (Hsp90) which provides essential chaperone support to various signal transduction molecules, including certain steroid hormone receptors and select kinases. Herbimycin also inhibits protein tyrosine kinase and angiogenesis.
