Description
Calcimycin is a potent calcium ionophore isolated from Streptomyces chartreusis in 1974. Calcimycin is a spiroketal substituted by pyrollic and benzoxazolyl groups which afford its high affinity and selectivity for calcium. Calcimycin exhibits broad biological activity against bacteria, fungi and protozoa. It has found wide application as a research tool for calcium-regulated cellular events.

Calcimycin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
