Moenomycin complex is a mixture of five major components: A, A12, C1, C3 and C4 isolated from several strains of Streptomyces in the 1960s. Moenomycins are high molecular weight phosphoglycolipids with potent antibiotic activity used in animal health. Moenomycins are the only antibiotic known to selectively inhibit the transglycosylation step catalyzed by penicillin-binding protein 1b.
Moenomycin complex from Streptomyces sp.
Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Limited water solubility.
