Technical Data
Enniatin A1 (2-(N-Methyl-L-valine) Enniatin A)
Biochemicals Storage: 4CShipping: Blue Ice
Enniatins are a family of depsipeptides produced several Fusarium species. The enniatins have been shown 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 A1 is one of four major analogues of the enniatin complex and has previously not been available for investigation.
