    Bicyclomycin is a polar metabolite first isolated from Streptomyces sapporonensis in 1972. The selective Gram negative profile of bicyclomycin is rare among Streptomyces metabolites.

    Bicyclomycin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO. 
    Mechanism of ActionThe primary site of action for bicyclomycin is thought to be the rho transcription termination factor.
    Molecular FormulaC12H18N2O7
