Immunomodulators are bio-active agents, which suppress, weaken or alter the activity of the immune system. This may consequently weaken inflammatory responses. Immunomodulators (immunosuppreessors) are most often used in organ transplantation to prevent rejection of an implant.

Autoimmune diseases are situations, where the immune system attacks one's own cells, tissues and organs, erroneously recognizing them as alien factors.
Immunomodulators may be used to cure autoimmune deseases.

Chemical name
Bafilomycin B1
Description

Bafilomycin B1 is a specific inhibitor of vacuolar type H+-ATPase (V-ATPase) in animal cells, plant cells and microorganisms.

Bafilomycin B1  can prevent the re-acidification of synaptic vesicles once they have undergone exocytosis.

It displays Antibacterial, Antifungal, Antineoplastic, Immunosuppressive properties.

Bafilomycin B1 shares the same mode of action and activity as its more accessible Bafilomycin A1 analogue. Bafilomycin B1 is broadly active against bacteria, fungi, insects, nematodes and protozoans. Bafilomycin B1 has attracted interest as a potential antiosteoporotic agent in treating bone lytic diseases.

Bafilomycins have been considered as possible therapeutic agents in the treatment of gastritis.

Applications

Bafilomycins specificly  inhibit  vacuolar type H+-ATPase (V-ATPase) in animal cells, plant cells and microorganisms. Bafilomycin A1 is useful in distinguishing among different types of ATPases. Bafilomycin A1 can prevent the re-acidification of synaptic vesicles once they have undergone exocytosis. Bafilomycin A1 and B1 significantly attenuate cerebellar granule neuron death resulting from agents that disrupt lysosome. As vacuolar ATPase inhibitors bafilomycins overcome Bcl-​xL-​mediated chemoresistance through restoration of a caspase-​independent apoptotic pathway.

Applications

Swainsonine has a potential for treating cancers such as glioma and gastric carcinoma.
However, a phase II clinical trial of GD0039 (a hydrochloride salt of swainsonine) in 17 patients with renal carcinoma was discouraging.

Swainsonine's activity against tumors is attributed to its stimulation of macrophages.
Swainsonine also has potential uses as an adjuvant for anti-cancer drugs and other therapies in use.
In mice, swainsonine reduces the toxicity of doxorubicin, suggesting that swainsonine might enable use of higher doses of doxorubicin.
Swainsonine may promote restoration of bone marrow damaged by some types of cancer treatments.

Enniatins occure in nature in the mycelia of some Fusarium species. Being cyclic and hydrophopic molecules, enniatins are able to act as ionophores. More recently their effects on acyl-CoA cholesterol transferase, transporters and the selectivity of their antitumor action have received more focus. Enniatin has not previously been available for investigation.

Applications

Myriocin, a potent inhibitor of serine palmitoyltransferase,a (the 1st step in sphingosine biosynthesis), is used in biochemical research as a tool for depleting cells of sphingolipids. Myriocin is a potent immunosuppressor, reportedly 10 to 100 times stronger than cyclosporin.
