Description
Sultriecin is the dominant analogue in a family of triene antibiotics originally thought to be sulfate esters, but recently unequivocally proven to be phosphate esters. While re-naming of the compound as "phostriecin" may cause confusion with "fostriecin", it is now recognised that sultriecin is a phosphate ester of fostriecin. Sultriecin displays potent antifungal and antitumor activity.

Sultriecin is soluble in water, optimial stability in aqueous buffered solutions at pH 6.5. NOTE: hydrolysis of the phosphate ester will result from inappropriate storage.
