    Enniatins are a complex of depsipeptides produced by several Fusarium species. Typically, the complex contains 4 major components: A, A1, B and B1 together with minor amounts of enniatins C, D, E and F. The enniatins act as ionophores. Recently their effects on acyl-CoA cholesterol transferase, as nematocides and the selectivity of their antitumor action have received more focus.

    Enniatin complex is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility. 
    Molecular FormulaC33H57N3O9 (for B)
