*Please inquire the availability for this product. Roseoflavin is an antibacterial pigment isolated from Streptomyces davawensis as an anti-metabolite of riboflavin. Roseoflavin is used as a substrate to mimic riboflavin in flavin biosynthesis, but leading to the formation of inactive flavin co-factors. More recently, roseoflavin has been shown to be an important regulator of bacterial gene expression by binding to untranslated regions of RNA, so-called ribo-switching sites.
