    Meleagrin is an alkaloid with antitumor and antibiotic activity, isolated from a number of species of Penicillium. Meleagrin is a common taxonomic marker for fungal contamination of foodstuffs. Note that meleagrin, the fungal metabolite, should not be confused with the low molecular weight protein, also meleagrin.

    Meleagrin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility.
    Mechanism of ActionDespite its wide detection in the environment, the mode of action and bioprofile has not been extensively reported.
    Molecular FormulaC23H23N5O4
