Parvodicin is a family of glycopeptides with potent antibiotic activity, isolated from Actinomadura parvosata. Structurally the parvodicins share a common cyclic peptide core with ristocetin. The analogues within the complex vary in the fatty acid substitution on the aminosugar. Parvodicin complex is a precursor to the synthetic glycopepide, dalbavancin.

Parvodicin complex is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Good water solubility.

    CAS Number


    Molecular Formula

    C83H88Cl2N8O29 (for C1)

    Molecular Weight

    1732.5 (for C1)

    Mechanism of Action

    Like other glycopeptides in this class, parvodicin complex inhibits cell wall formation by binding to D-alanine-D-alanine residues.
