Antibiotic. Fatty acid synthase (FAS) inhibitor reported to bind in equimolar ratio to β-keto-acyl-ACP synthase (KAS; IC50=1.5µM), thus inhibiting protein acylation at concentrations of 45-134 µM. Produces metabolic effects similar to the effects of leptin, but through mechanisms that are independent of, or down-stream from, both leptin and melanocortin receptors. Apoptosis inducer. Inhibitor of bacterial fatty acid synthesis (inhibits FabH, FabB and FabF condensation enzymes).
