Strevertene A is a pentaene macrolide produced by Streptoverticillium first reported in 1999 by researchers at Wyeth. Strevertene A is potently active against Fusarium wilt on tomato plants and inhibits mycelial growth of Alternaria mali, Aspergillus oryzae, Cylindrocarpon destructans, Colletotrichum orbiculare, Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici, and Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, at concentrations of 4-16 μg/mL.
