Bestatin is "pseudo"-dipeptide isolated from Streptomyces olivreticuli in 1976. Bestatin is a potent aminopeptidase B inhibitor with no carboxypeptidase activity. Bestatin acts as an immunomodulator by activating macrophages and T lymphocytes. Bestatin also exhibits antitumor activity and has been investigated in clinical trials.
