Thiolutin is an antibiotic first described by Tanner and co-workers in 1950. Resurgent interest in this class of microbial metabolites was stimulated by the discovery of their selective antitumor activity. Thiolutin suppresses tumor cell-induced angiogenesis in vivo.

Thiolutin is soluble in DMF and DMSO and is moderately soluble in methanol and ethanol.
