Nargenicin A1 isolated from Actinomyces sp. Gö301 is a 28-membered polyketide macrolide, with antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
Nargenicin A1 is an antibiotic against Gram-positive bacteria, particularly Staphylococcus and Clostridia. It is more effective against multi-resistan strains(MRSA) than erythromycin and vancomycin. But it shows low cytotoxicity compared to erythromycin and spiramycin. Nargenicin A1 inhibits cell proliferation and induces HL-60 cell differentiation in combination with 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin-D3 and ATRA.
