    Resistomycin is a tetrahydroxyanthrone that has been independently isolated by several groups and reported to have a broad range of biological activities. Resistomycin is active against bacteria, including mycobacteria, and viruses. Resistomycin induces apoptosis and inhibits RNA polymerase.

    Resistomycin is soluble in DMF and DMSO and is moderately soluble in methanol or ethanol.
