Bicyclomycin (also called Bicozamycin) is a polar metabolite first isolated from Streptomyces sapporonensis in 1972, with activity against Gram negative bacteria. The selective Gram-negative profile of bicyclomycin is rare among Streptomyces metabolites. The primary site of action for bicyclomycin is thought to be the rho transcription termination factor.
