Technical Data
Cyclopeptine (Benzyl-3,4-dihydro-4-methyl-1H-1,4-benzodiazepine-2,5-dione)
Biochemicals Storage: 4C/-20CShipping: Blue Ice
Cyclopeptine is a benzodiazepine metabolite produced by a number of species of Penicillium. While there is little literature about the metabolite there is considerable interest in the enzymes responsible for the biosynthesis of the benzodiazepine nucelus, cyclopeptine synthetase.

Soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Limited water solubility
