Gilvocarcin V is the major analogue of a complex of C-glycoside antitumor actives isolated from a Streptomyces sp. Gilvocarcin V contains a vinyl group in the 8-position and is the most potent analogue of the complex. It is thought to act as an inhibitor of the catalytic activity of human topoisomerase II. The metabolite displays potent antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antitumor activity. Recent research on the gilvocarcins suggests that they act as photoactiviated crosslinkers of DNA to histones.
