An antibacterial agent, a metabolite and a bacterial metabolite.
Tyrocidine complex is a mixture of cyclic decapeptides originally isolated from B. brevis. It can be composed of 4 different amino acid sequences, giving tyrocidine A–D. Tyrocidine was the first commercially available antibiotic, but has been found to be toxic toward human blood and reproductive cells. The function of tyrocidine within its host B. brevis is thought to be regulation of sporulation.
