    Cinnamycin (lanthiopeptin) is a high molecular weight tricyclic antibiotic produced by several species of Streptoverticillium.

    Cinnamycin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO.
    Mechanism of ActionCinnamycin is a potent indirect inhibitor of phospholipase A2, acting by specifically sequestering phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), a major component of the mammalian plasma cell membrane. Cinnamycin induces trans-bilayer phospholipid movement in cell membranes to expose internally bound PE. At high surface concentrations of PE, cinnamycin induces membrane reorganisation including membrane fusion and alteration of gross morphology.
    Molecular FormulaC89H125N25O25S3
