Technical Data
Lateropyrone (Avenacein Y, Antibiotic Y)
Biochemicals Storage: 4C/-20CShipping: Blue Ice
Lateropyrone is an unusual heterocyclic metabolite isolated from Fusarium avenaceum with antibacterial and antifungal activity. The metabolite was independently characterized as Antibiotic Y and found to be an important metabolite marker for strains of F. avenaceum. Lack of availability has hitherto restricted a more intensive investigation of this metabolite.

DMSO and DMF, partially soluble in methanol and ethanol while poorly soluble in water
