Description
Feglymycin is an amphoteric, 13-member, linear peptide featuring 3,5-dihydroxyphenylalanine and a terminal dicarboxylate amino acid, isolated from a Streptomyces in 1999. Feglymycin is a potent antiviral agent with antibacterial activity, including against MRSA.

Feglymycin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility.
