Myriocin is an amino fatty acid antibiotic derived from certain thermophylic fungi, in this case Mycelia sterilia. It is a potent immunosuppressant having 10- to 100-fold more activity than cyclosporin A.1 Myriocin is a potent inhibitor of serine palmitoyltransferase (Ki = 0.28 nM), the enzyme that catalyzes the first step of sphingolipid biosynthesis. 2 It disrupts substratum adhesion of melanoma cells.3 It also suppresses cell proliferation in the murine cytotoxic T cell line CTLL-2 (IC50 = 15 nM) via apoptosis.2,4 Myriocin suppresses replication of the hepatitis C virus in a murine model.5
