19,20-Epoxycytochalasin D is a major component of the cytochalasin complex from MST-FP1762. Although reported in the literature, there is no available biological data on the metabolite other than in-house data suggesting the presence of the epoxide renders the metabolite more active than cytochalasin D in inhibition of tumor cell growth in vitro.
