Kibdelone C is the major analogue of a potent antitumor complex isolated from Kibdelosporangium sp. Structurally, kibdelone C is related to lysolipin and albofungin, however no comparative investigation of this class has been reported. The mode of action and pharmacology of the kibdelones has received little attention.
