    O-Deacetylravidomycin is the more active and stable analogue of the ravidomycin complex produced by Streptomyces ravidus. The metabolite shows potent, light-dependent antitumor activity. O-Deacetylravidomycin, like the related gilvocarcins and chrysomycins, is thought to act as a topoisomerase II inhibitor.

    O-Deacetylravidomycin is soluble in DMF and DMSO and is moderately soluble in methanol and ethanol.
