    Geninthiocin is a thiopeptide antibiotic isolated from a Streptomyces sp. Geninthiocin displays a 10-fold selectivity for bacteria over mammalian cells lines, whereas the related dedialanyl geninthiocin shows the reverse selectivity. Geninthiocin is closely related to siomycin, a recently discovered inhibitor of oncogenic transcription factor, FoxM1.

    Geninthiocin is soluble in DMF or DMSO. Moderately soluble in methanol or ethanol. Poor water solubility.
    Mechanism of ActionGeninthiocin is a potent activator of the tipA gene, a bacterial transcription regulator involved in multidrug resistance.
    Molecular FormulaC50H49N15O15S
