    UCN-02 is an indolocarbazole isolated from a high staurosporine-producing Streptomyces culture as a minor co-metabolite. Although less selective than its isomer UCN-01, UCN-02 exhibits comparable activity and probably acts by similar mechanisms.

    UCN-02 is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO. 
    Molecular FormulaC28H26N4O4
