    Epiequisetin

    $266.16 - $931.59
    Epiequisetin is a minor isomer of equisetin, a potent inhibitor of HIV-integrase produced by a number of species of Fusarium. Chemically, equisetin equilibrates with epiequisetin. Although found to have comparable phytotoxicity to equisetin, epiequisetin has not been extensively investigated.

    Epiequisetin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility.
