Calicheamicins

Title: Calicheamicins
Additional Names: LL-E33288; CLM
Literature References: Family of 15-20 enediyne antitumor antibiotics produced by Micromonospora echinospora ssp. calichensis, a bacterium isolated from chalky soil or a caliche. Naming is based on TLC mobility using Greek letters with subscripts and on the halogen substitution which is indicted by the superscript. Binds to the minor groove of DNA and initiates double stranded DNA cleavage via a radical abstraction process. This type of damage is usually lethal as it is not repairable by the cell. Isoln: W. M.
