Cercosporin (CGP049090) is a perylenequinone, the causative agent of soy bean purple speck disease due to the fungal pathogen, Cercsopsorium kikuchii. Cercosporin is a pigmented phytotoxin isolated from the fungus Cercsopsorium kikuchii. Cercosporin phytotoxicity is light-activated and this process contributes to a wider biological profile as a photodynamic antiviral and antitumor active. Cercosporin is an antagonist of Tcf4/b-catenin signalling, inhibiting the expression of survivin and inducing apoptosis in several tumor cell lines.
