    Viridicatin is a fungal metabolite produced by several species of Penicillium and formed by the rearrangement of the benzodiazepine, cyclopenin. Viridicatin exhibits potent selective activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but is inactive against most other bacteria.

    Viridicatin is soluble in DMF and DMSO and is moderately soluble in methanol or ethanol.
