    Quinomycin A

    $87.00 - $304.00
    Quinomycin A is a cyclic depsipeptide metabolite. Quinomycin A has broad activity against bacteria, fungi and viruses, and has found application as an antitumor agent. Quinomycin A acts by bifunctional intercalation of nucleic acids. Recent research has shown quinomycin A to be an extremely potent inhibitor of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1). This transcription factor plays an essential role in tumor progression and metastasis.

    Quinomycin A is soluble in DMF and DMSO and has limited solubility in ethanol and methanol.
