    $159.50 - $558.24
    Beauvericin is a cyclic depsipeptide isolated from several fungal genera, notably Beauveria and Fusarium, first reported in 1969. Beauvericin exhibits broad antifungal, antibacterial, antiprotozoan and insecticidal activities.

    Beauvericin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
    Mechanism of ActionAt the molecular level, beauvericin exhibits ionophore properties, and inhibits acyl-CoA:cholesterol acyltransferase activity. Beauvericin induces apoptosis by elevating intracellular calcium levels.
    Molecular FormulaC45H57N3O9
