- Tenuazonic Acid Copper Salt is an antineoplastic agent and mycotoxin. It Inhibits protein synthesis, though which it has been shown inhibiting TPA-induced ornithine decarboxylase activity. Lack of ornithine decarboxylase has been shown to eventually cause DNA damage induced apoptosis. It has also been shown to inhibit photosystem II.
This is a potential antineoplastic agent
