Cytotoxic agents are dangerous medications, which may be used to treat major and possibly even life-threatening diseases. Cytotoxic agents were initially introduced in medicine for their ability to interrupt nucleic acid and protein synthesis in malignant cells. Subsequently, and on the basis of their immune-suppressing capacities, they were used for the prevention of rejection of allogenic transplanted organs (azathioprine, cyclosporine, and mycophenolate mofetil). The realization that these agents exhibit immunomodulatory capacities led to their use in autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Description

Antimycin A is a complex of related macrocyclic lactones, predominantly A1 to A4, isolated from several species of Streptomyces, first reported in the early 1950s for potent antifungal activity. There are over 20 known analogues in the antimycin A class, mostly involving variation of the fatty acid ester chain length or adjacent alkyl starting unit. Antimycin A binds to cytochrome C reductase at the Qi site, inhibiting the oxidation of ubiquinol to ubiquinone. Antimycin A is widely used as a bioprobe of respiration and other applications with over 5,000 literature citations.

Some of data brought in this page, such as Molecular Weight, relates to Antimycin A1

Actinomycin D is an antibiotic, a member of Actinomycins group, derived from Streptomyces parvullus. Actinomycin D binds to DNA and inhibits RNA synthesis (transcription), with chain elongation more sensitive than initiation, termination, or release. As a result of impaired mRNA production, protein synthesis also declines.

Description

Cercosporin is a light-induced polyketide phytotoxin reported to produce singlet oxygen when photoactivated. Acts as a potent and specific PKC inhibitor. Competes for the phorbol binding site. Anticancer compound. Also displays antiproliferative; antiparasitic and antimicrobial properties. Cercosporin is a photosensitizing toxin produced by fungal plant pathogens in the genus Cercospora. Cercosporin produces singlet oxygen and superoxide when irradiated by light, and damages plants by causing a peroxidation of the membrane lipids. This membrane damage leads to a loss in membrane fluidity, leakage of nutrients, and rapid death of the plant cell. Cercosporin is toxic to mice and bacteria in addition to plants, and attempts to select plant cells in vitro for resistance to cercosporin have not been successful. A large number of fungal species, however, are resistant to cercosporin. Carotenoids and the fungal cell wall appear to play a critical role in the resistance of fungi to cercosporin.
