Conglobatin is a unique dimeric macrolide antibiotic derived from ionomycin, an ionophore produced by Streptomyces conglobatus. Conglobatin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, and DMSO.
|Mechanism of Action||Macrolide antibiotics inhibit bacterial growth by targeting the 50S ribosomal subunit preventing peptide bond formation and translocation during protein synthesis.|
