Virginiamycin B is a depsipeptide antibiotic co-produced with ostreogrycin A, together used as a synergistic mixture. Virginiamycin B, also known as ostreogrycin B and streptogramin B among other synonyms, was discovered independently and named by several groups, leading to considerable confusion in the literature.

Virginiamycin B is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
