Description

Tetranactin is a macrotetrolide produced by Streptomyces aureus. It is a monovalent cation ionophore with high selectivity for ammonium and potassium. It is demonstrated to inhibit synthesis and release of IL-2 by mitogen-activated lymphocytes and it shows immunosuppressive effects by affecting intracellular cation concentrations.

It has antibacterial, insecticidal and mitogenic activities. The antibiotic suppresses the growth of Gram-positive bacteria and some phytopathogenic fungi in vitro at low concentrations.

Tetranactin ionophore has limited water solubility but is soluble in most organic solvents.

 

Applications

• Monovalent cation ionophore

• Antibiotic

• Immunosuppressive agent
