Enramycin B, EvoPure® is a highly purified form of Enramycin B. Enramycin is a polypeptide antibiotic produced by Streptomyces fungicidus and developed as a food additive in Japan. Enramycin is composed of two different compounds: Enramycin A Enramycin B. The ratios of A and B varies but is typically ~70:30. Enramycin is slightly soluble in water and freely soluble in dilute HCl solution.

|Mechanism of Action
|Enramycin acts as a MurG inhibitor involved peptidoglycan synthesis in Gram-positive bacteria. MurG catalyzes the transglycosylation reaction in the last step of peptidoglycan biosynthesis. Inhibition of this step greatly compromises cell wall integrity leading to cell death by lysis.
|Enramycin is effective against Gram-positive bacteria and inhibits development of major gut flora pathogens. Resistance or cross-resistance with existing antibiotics has rarely been observed.
|Slightly soluble in water. Freely soluble in dilute HCl solution.
