  • Antibiotic. Exhibits broad activity against Gram-positive bacteria.
  • Bacterial cell division protein FtsZ inhibitor (IC50=8.2µg/ml). Inhibits the GTPase activity of FtsZ in vitro (IC50=7.0µg/ml).
  • Induces apoptosis and autophagy and inhibits cell growth at G2/M in human prostate cancer cells.
  • Activates ATP hydrolysis and induces calcium sensitized swelling of rat liver mitochondria.
