Triacsin C

Triacsin C is a potent inhibitor of long fatty acyl CoA synthetase. It blocks β-cell apoptosis, induced by fatty acids in a rat model of obesity. In addition, it blocks the de novo synthesis of triglycerides, diglycerides, and cholesterol esters, thus interfering with lipid metabolism. Triacsin C belongs to a family of fungal metabolites all having an 11-carbon alkenyl chain with a common N-hydroxytriazene moiety at the terminus. Due to the N-hydroxytriazene group, triacsin C has acidic properties and may be considered a polyunsaturated fatty acid analog. It was discovered by Yoshida K, and other Japanese scientists, in 1982, in a culture of the microbe Streptomyces aureofaciens. They identified it as a vasodilator.
