Teleocidin A is a potent nematocide and acaricide produced by Streptoverticillium strains, first reported in 1960. Teleocidin A is a potent activator of protein kinase C, and also a tumor promoting agent and inducer of colony-stimulating factors. More recently, teleocidin A1 has been shown to regulate the expression of several genes. To date, the lack of availability of teleocidin has meant the truncated teleocidin-like (-)indolactam has been used to mimic teleocidin cellular responses.

Teleocidin A is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
