    Feglymycin

    $266.16 - $931.59
    Feglymycin is an amphoteric, 13-member, linear peptide featuring 3,5-dihydroxyphenylalanine and a terminal dicarboxylate amino acid, isolated from a Streptomyces in 1999. Feglymycin is a potent antiviral agent with antibacterial activity, including against MRSA.

    Feglymycin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Poor water solubility.
    Mechanism of ActionFeglymycin specifically inhibits the enzymes MurA and MurC and inhibits cell-to-cell transfer between HIV-infected T cells, uninfected CD4+ T cells, and the DC-SIGN-mediated viral transfer to CD4+ T cells.
    Molecular FormulaC95H97N13O30
