A novel angucycline-type antibiotic, warkmycin, was isolated from the culture filtrate of Streptomyces strain Acta 2930. Its chemical structure was elucidated by HR-MS, one-dimensional and 20 NMR experiments. The compound inhibits the growth of Gram-positive bacteria and shows a strong antiproliferative activity against mouse fibroblast cell line NIH-3T3 and human cancer cell lines HepG2 and HT29.
