Application Notes

(+)-Oxanthromicin is an unusual dimeric anthrone co-produced with staurosporine by Streptomyces sp. MST-134270, reported by Capon and co-workers in 2014 as an inducer of the mislocalisation K-Ras on the cell membrane. (+)-Oxanthromicin was also found to act synergistically with staurosporine, a more potent active in this assay. (+)-Oxanthromicin is an enantiomer of (-)-oxanthromicin isolated from an Actinomadura sp. SCC 1646 by researchers at Schering as an antifungal and antibacterial in 1984.
