Biological Activity:

Cytochalasin H is used in actin polymerization studies. Cytochalasins are potent mycotoxins which bind to the barbed end of actin filaments resulting in inhibition of both the association and dissociation of subunits. Used as a tool for cytological research. These fungal toxins are related by their chemical structure characterized by a highly substituted hydrogenated isoindole ring to which is fused a macrocyclic ring. In vitro, cytochalasin H exhibits antibacterial, antifungal, nematocidal and antitumor activity.
